Is it ebelskivers or abelskivers?

I have been a bad naughty blogger!  I am sorry for my absenteeism but life has gotten in the way the last little while.  Which is a totally lame excuse right?  Yeah for sure!  It seems like sometimes life kicks you right in the pants and doesn't let up!  But I am back with a cool little recipe! 

Have you ever heard of abelskivers?  They rock!  It is a little round ball pancake thing that tastes kind of like crepes and has been dubbed little ballls of heaven at our house.  That sounds vaguely crude.... oh uh sorry.... I will try and pull my mind out of the gutter!  You need a special pan to make them.  It looks like this:

and you end up with this:

We dipped ours in butter and then powdered sugar.  Super simple and freaking delightful!  

This is the recipe I used from the Idea Room.  The source that I used for the picture of the pan has a great recipe too!

I pretty much followed it to the letter!  However I had to make my own buttermilk since we were out.  All that takes is 1tbsp white vinegar or lemon juice to one cup of milk.  Let it rest 5 to 10 minutes and you are ready to go!


  1. They look delicious and sound very easy to make.. I may have to start looking for one of those pans!

  2. Oh Tracey you will be glad you did! Oh my gawh they were wonderful! By the way I love your blog!!!!
