Cookbook GIVEAWAY + recipe for miniature, orange-cream filled pancakes from author and food stylist Kevin Crafts

Orange-Cream Ebelskivers - Danish-style Filled Pancakes

Few years back, I ate these cute little pillow-y filled pancake treats, in a Danish bakery, in Solvang. I came home, and craved to have'em one more time (at-least)! I was not an active blogger at that time, so never thought to try making some at home. What I did try though, was looking online for a Danish bakery, near-by. Instead of finding Danish Bakery, I came across this beautiful book by Kevin Crafts, and I couldn't help just staring at the pictures for a long time!

Scrumptious Orange-Cream Filled Ebelskivers. Great for Breakfast or Sweet Treats after dinner!

Those were my pretty early days of blogging, when I bought two copies of this book, kept one for me and gave-away one on my blog. Then, I also received a few copies for more giveaways from author Kevin Crafts. I made a lot of ebelskivers since that time.... gave-away few books... but never thought my pictures worth to do justice to Kevin's recipes, until now.

Now, after 3+ years of blogging, and improving 10-folds in my food-styling and camera skills, I finally felt to share one of my favorite recipe from his book i.e. Orange-Cream Ebelskivers. Pillow-y citrus pancakes filled with orange-cream cheese filling. Like a bundle of joy, these filled pancakes just melt-in-mouth.

I often serve Ebelskivers for breakfast, especially these ones are our favorite with some hot Chai on Saturday morning.

Directions

  • Step for Recipe - Orange-Cream Ebelskivers - Danish-style Filled Pancakes
    1. In bowl, blend cream with orange zest and 1 teaspoon sugar until smooth. Cover and refrigerate until needed.
  • 2. Optional - Preheat the oven at 200 F to keep the ready ebleskivers warm while making more than one batch.
  • Step for Recipe - Orange-Cream Ebelskivers - Danish-style Filled Pancakes
    3. Orange Batter - In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Set aside. In a small bowl, whisk egg yolks, then whisk in the milk, orange juice, and melted butter. Add yolk mixture to flour mixture and, using spatula, stir until well blended. Batter will be lumpy.
    Step for Recipe - Orange-Cream Ebelskivers - Danish-style Filled Pancakes
    4. In a clean bowl, using electric mixture on high speed, beat the egg whites until, stiff but not dry, peaks form. Using a rubber spatula, fold about one-third of egg whites into the batter to lighten it, then fold in the rest just until no white streaks remain. Don't over-mix.

    6. When the batter starts to bubble, add about 1 tablespoon batter to each well. Working quickly, carefully spoon about 1 teaspoon orange-cream cheese mixture into the center of each pancake.

    7. Top each with another 1 tablespoon batter.

  • Step for Recipe - Orange-Cream Ebelskivers - Danish-style Filled Pancakes
    9. Transfer the finished pancakes to a platter and keep warm in the oven while you repeat to make 2 more batches.

    10. Dust warm ebelskivers with powdered sugar and serve right away.
Savita's Notes:

Ebelskivers require a Ebelskivers Pan for cooking.

Pan should be hot when you add batter, so that batter does not stick to bottom of the pan.

For first time cooking, I recommend filling only a few pancakes at-a-time to learn the skill of turning these pancakes properly.

  22. @Roomana, i doubt these pancakes can be baked. since need quick cooking, pan nd direct heat is suitable way to cook'em. if u don't have ebelskiver pan, use normal pan with same batter to make filled round wide pancakes. hope this helps.
