Growing up, ebelskiver was a welcomed treat. Depending on the season or what was on hand, the fillings could be anything from jam to cheese. With the cool fall weather and seeing pumpkins everywhere, I’ve been looking for a recipe for a good pumpkin filling.
I actually found a Pecan Pumpkin Filled Pancake recipe on the Williams Sonoma web site (where I bought my ebelskiver pan a few years ago). Because I don’t have access to their pumpkin butter (and it’s most likely not gluten-free) and because I use my own gluten-free pancake mix, I’m going to have to experiment a little to get just the right filling. The trick with the batter is to make it lighter than a pancake batter by whipping the egg whites and folding them in. Other than that, it’s fairly easy to make ebelskiver if you have the pan and your filling options are limitless.
So the windows are open, the cool breeze is coming through, and I’ve got some ideas on what to do. And just maybe I’ll end up doing them all (jam, cheese, pumpkin, cream cheese….!). Any other ideas?
