Æbelskivers are traditional Danish pancakes.  They are sort of a pancake crossed with a popover.  I guess you could call them pancake puffs ;) These little morsels are so scrumptious.  The version shown below are chocolate chip filled with Nutella and they are so good you'll want to make them everyday.  I wouldn't suggest making them everyday for waistline purposes but they are great for a special breakfast.  Everyone is a huge fan and the best part is you can fill them with almost anything...strawberries, bananas, blueberries, apples, any kind of jam, etc...


Mason and Gabby love Æbelskivers!

The center is filled with creamy Nutella.

La Recette:
*You will need an Æbelskiver pan:
1 1/4 cups gluten free baking mix (I recommend Bisquick gluten free baking mix)
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 eggs, separated
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 cup milk
1/3 cup mini chocolate chips (you can use milk or semi-sweet - I like Ghirardelli)
10 1/2 teaspoons Nutella 
Dusting of powdered sugar

- In a small bowl, whisk together the baking mix, baking powder, salt, and chocolate chips - set aside.  In a large bowl, whisk together the sugar, egg yolks, vanilla, butter, and milk.  Stir in dry ingredients and mix until just combined.  Do not over mix.
-In another large bowl, with a handheld mixer or whisk, beat the egg whites until soft peaks form.  Slowly, fold the egg whites into the yolk mixture and mix until just combined.
-Put the Æbelskiver pan over medium low heat and spray each well of the pan with canola oil or use a dab of butter.  Add 1 tablespoon of batter to each pan.  Then add a 1/2 teaspoon of Nutella.  Finally top each with 1/2 tablespoon of the batter.  Let them cook until the bottoms are golden, about 3-4 minutes, then flip (I use wooden chop sticks to flip them over) and continue cooking for about 3 more minutes.  Transfer to a plate and keep them covered.  Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve immediately.  Enjoy :)


*Makes 20 - 22
*These are very easy to make dairy free.  Replace the butter with Earth Balance, and use soy milk.  You can also use dark chocolate or a fruit filling!  To make nut free, just use fruit or chocolate that is nut free.
