Pronounced "able-skeevers", this Danish treat is a cross between a pancake and a popover. They are cute and fun to eat. You can stuff them with anything. Today I stuffed mine with ripe banana chunks and served them with a dusting of confectioners' sugar, maple syrup and whipped cream.
I used the gluten free pancake mix from Bob's Red Mills. You need to use two skewers to turn the batter in the wells to make them round. I used two chopsticks to turn the batter as it cooked in the ebleskiver wells.
I found the ebleskivers more filling than they looked. The girls could only eat one and I barely managed to stuff 3 down.
I think that the ebleskiver pan shows good promise as a takoyaki pan. I'll have to try it soon with something savoury! I purchased my pan from Williams Sonoma and have only used it twice. I now recall the previous time I made them that we overdosed on them and that's why I haven't made them in a while. Next time, I need to make a smaller batch!
