Last year my friend, Holly, made this danish dish for our Young Women and it was incredibly delicious! Jeremy gave me an Ebilskiver pan for Christmas and we made them tonight. Wow, they were so good that we thought you may not want to go on another minute not having this recipe! Trust me, life will be better. =)
(Holly's family writes it as "Aebleskivers" although the pan read "Ebilskivers.")
3 cups milk
1 package of yeast (or 2 1/4 tsp of yeast)
4 cups flour
5 eggs (separated)
Heaping TB sugar
1/2 cup melted butter
Warm milk until nearly hot. Add yeast and mix until dissolved. Mix in flour, egg yolks, and sugar. Mix well and then add the melted butter. Mix well, cover, and let rise for 30 minutes. Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Fold into batter.
Heat ebilskiver pan over medium heat. Butter each hole before scooping batter in (I use the Pampered Chef large cookie scoop.) Use wooden skewers or plastic chopsticks to turn each ebilskiver into itself frequently as to brown all around. You may fill each puff with chocolate chips, jam, etc. before first turn. (I like them best unfilled.)
You may want to keep them hot in a warm oven until ready to serve. Fill separate bowls with homemade raspberry jam, melted butter, and powdered sugar for ebilskiver dipping. You will be in heaven!
If you are looking for a pan, you may find them at Williams Sonoma. Enjoy!
