Apple Cinnamon Ebelskivers

Apple Cinnamon Ebelskivers

I made these for breakfast on Boxing Day. The apple cinnamon compote in the middle takes a little time but it is so worth it. Almost better than eating apple pie!If you don’t have an Ebelskiver pan don’t worry. The filling for these would taste great on any kind of pancake or waffle. You could use it to jazz up some Ego’s too! We ran out of maple syrup so I had mine with vanilla ice cream

Ebelskivers are Danish pancakes that were traditionally filled with jam and served at holidays or celebrations. The ones of today are versatile and filled with sweet or savory items.

Vanilla Pancake Batter

Ingredients
1 cup plain flour
1 1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 eggs separated
1 cup milk
2 tbs melted butter
1/2 tsp vanilla
1. In a large bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Then stir in the egg yolks, milk, melted butter and vanilla with a wooden spoon. The batter will be lumpy.
2. In a small bowl whisk the egg whites until stiff. Fold in one third to lighten the batter and then fold in the rest.

6. After about 2 minutes using two wooden skewers flip the pancake over so the other side can cook. It will be a little liquid still but will fuse together when flipped.
7. Place in a warm oven until ready to serve. Dust with icing sugar.
