Ebelskivers are a Danish pancake that is cooked into a sphere using a special pan. They are fluffy and silky smooth on the inside, and you can fill them with anything from fresh berries to cream cheese. Flipping them in the pan is almost as fun as eating them!
Additional melted butter for greasing the aebleskiver pan.
In a medium bowl, using a hand mixer, whisk the egg whites until stiff peaks form, set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together your flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add in your melted butter, egg yolks, and buttermilk and whisk until just combined.
Gently fold the egg whites into the rest of the batter until it all comes together.
You will need an ebelskiver pan to cook these, heat your pan over medium heat and brush each cup with some of your melted butter then fill each cup nearly full, about 2 tablespoons.
Once the ebelskivers begin to bubble, flip each one half way over using a wooden skewer or fork, allowing the batter to slide out of the cooked portion of the ebelskiver and into the cup to cook, you will repeat this step once more to complete the ball. Continue to rotate the ebelskiver around until they are all an even golden brown and completely cooked all the way through.
Remove the finished ableskivers from the pan and enjoy fresh! These are typically dusted with powdered sugar and eaten with jam, but you can pair them with any of your favorite toppings.
