From the Inside Flap

Originally from Denmark, ebelskivers (pronounced "able-skeevers") are snacks or desserts traditionally served during holidays and at celebrations. Today, cooks offer these puffy, sphere-shaped pancakes with a wide range of sweet and savory toppings and fillings, varying them in countless creative ways.

Making ebelskivers requires little more than ingredients you probably already have on hand - milk, eggs, flour - and a special seven-welled pan that forms the pancakes' unique shape. Everything you need to know about making these treats is here: from mixing the batter; to cooking and filling the pancakes; to tips for creating perfect ebelskivers every time.

Filled with luscious photographs and more than forty tempting recipes, this book will provide endless inspiration for any occasion.

From the Back Cover

In these pages you'll find more than 40 sweet and savory ideas for Danish-style sphere-shaped puffs called ebelskivers. Served any time of the day, these delicious recipes will change the way you look at pancakes forever!

This is a great little book with lots of ideas. The variety of ideas was one of the reasons I wanted to have the book, but the main reason I wanted it was for a CHOCOLATE batter recipe.

Well they have a picture of chocolate ones and they refer you to the chocolate one, but there is no chocolate batter recipe anywhere in the book. You are told to use the vanilla batter for the chocolate ones. Anyway I still like the book and just figured out a work around for the problem.

If you want a chocolate batter, make the vanilla batter and add the following additional ingredients:
3 Tablespoons of cocoa powder to the flour, salt, baking soda, sugar mixture.
Increase the Sugar to 3 Tablespoons
Increase the butter to 4 Tablespoons

If you are allergic to dairy like I am, substitute coconut milk for the milk.
Coconut oil for the butter that goes in the batter.
Olive oil to cook.

My kids love the chocolate ones with rolo candies melted in the middle.

By the way, if you are going to make these, you owe it to yourself to buy the Lodge Cast Iron Aebleskiver pan. Lodge is the best and they are made in America. Heat the pan in your oven on 350 before putting on the stove top. Your pan will be heated through and you will get cooking much quicker.

Within 2 days of receiving this book I made 3 batches of Ebelskivers.
I had never heard of them before stumbling on them on Amazon.
Some reveiwers say they use pancake mix to make theirs but I can't imagine replacing the light, airy batter with a heavier mix. The book gives several receipes for the pastry mix.
I tend to believe if you prefrer a buttermilk batter you could substitute the milk with it to acheive the same finished result and taste.
The Ebelskiver are to die for and the batter is so simple to make at home. I understand why someone called them "Evil Skeevers"!
I made the basic batter twice and already tried experimenting by adding ice cream fudge topping as the filler on the second batch. It worked out great.
The third batch I made the almond cherry ones. Great too.
They are so simple to make and are unbelievably delicious.
What surprised me is the versatitly of them. In the cookbook are cheese stuffed served with marinara sauce, crab stuffed, etc. If you like to be a creative cook like I do, the possibilities are endless
There is not one person that I have talked to that have ever heard of them. Obvisously, they are not sold in the stores around Western New York.
I am planning on opening a bed and breakfast next year and these will definitely be on the menu.
Along with the cookbook I also purchased Nordic Ware Danish Ebleskiver Pan.
Great pan to make great Ebelskivers!!
Get them both and let your imagination and creativity take you away to tastefully wonderful possibilites.

This is a great little cookbook for those delicious pancake type treats.
The standard batter recipes are worth the price alone. We make these for our daughter and she loves them. This book just has some great ideas for sweet, savory and dessert skivers.
Again the standard batter recipes alone are worth it!

If you have never tried Ebelskivers, get the book and the pan and let creativity be your guide. My favorite is to take the coconut skiver recipe and add butterscotch chips.

You can also alter the ingredients to make them a little more healthy, we use low fat milk, egg whites and coconut oil in place of whole milk, whole eggs and butter.
Still delicious, less evil.

I bought this book on a friend's recommendation, and I love it. So many ways to make sweet and savory ebelskivers. Made strawberry ones for my eldest grandson and chocolate chip for the youngest, and they loved them.

Having just purchased a new Aebelskiver pan, I wanted a really good set of recipes to go with it. As another reviewer said, many of the recipes don't really require a separate recipe, they are just additions of a few extra taste ingredients that do not modify the original recipe in any significant way. It is handy though to have so many ideas available of ways to flavor your aebelskiver.

That said, I was not impressed with the base recipe. It tasted a bit egg-y. I have had much better luck with recipes posted on blogs. All in all, I would not recommend this book. Find a good basic aebleskiver recipe, and then add flavorings to your heart's content.

I have had an ebelskiver pan for a couple years, but I haven't used it too much. It seemed like too much work just to make tiny pancakes. I saw this and decided I'd give this a try and now I'm hooked! The fabulous recipes in this book make it SO worth the extra effort. Our favorite is he srawberry shortcake recipe, and we're going to try the bananas foster recipe next. We will keep busy with all the wonderful looking recipes we found in this book. The time consuming part is in cooking all the individual pancakes. The recipes here don't take long to put together. I highly recommend this for anybody who has an ebelskiver pans!

I received this book and an Ebelskivers pan for Christmas and was so excited to try it I was in a brain frenzy trying to decide which one to try first. I tried the Cinnamon crunch ones that taste like a cinnamon bun with a crunchy creme brulee type of top. I lost a couple at the beginning trying to get the heat just right, since you had to put in butter and brown sugar, but after the first experimental ones I was cooking....literally....they are so easy! I wasn't sure about turning the little doughy orbs, but easy....even with me with toothpicks, because I couldn't find wooden skewers and we wanted to try them! This cookbook is easy to follow. The recipes are simple, most with ingredients already in your pantry, and in about 6 minutes you are popping these delicious bites of heaven into your mouth and waiting for the next batch. There are brunch ebelskivers, ones for dessert, breakfast and some that would make a nice side with a dinner salad on hot days. chocolate chip, pear, walnut and blue cheese, chocolate lava, apple, salmon, dill and cream cheese. Need I say more? There are recipes for a basic batter, vanilla and orange along with recipes for sauces and toppings. Your biggest problem with this book will be to decide what to make first. Oh, and if you need pictures, you will get many in this mouthwatering book....and a great step by step page showing how to mix them and cook them.

I love the idea of making these for appetizers as well as a fancy but easy dessert as well as a one that you could do for brunch-tiny cheese souffle anyone?

I don't know how I have just found out about these little versatile gems, but I'm so glad I did. I have the Nordic Pro pan and this recipe book is a perfect, and I do mean perfect tie in. What a fantastic gift.
