What’s for Easter Breakfast? Blackberry Ebelskivers
What the heck is an Ebelskiver?
A Ebelskiver is the most wonderful breakfast creation. It’s a Danish pancake puff…mmm! Traditionally, these little beauties are made unstuffed or stuffed with apples. I developed a twist for you today and stuffed them with blackberries and I can assure you, it’s a wonderful substitute.
How do you make Ebelskiver?
This gives you an idea of how easy and fun Ebelskiver are to make. You just pour in the batter, stuff them, pour over some more batter, flip them, and EAT! You do need the special pan shown, but they are fairly inexpensive and readily available.
