I typically make an assortment of flavors when I make ebleskiver but these almond-filled pancakes are so good that they merit being featured in their own post. They are best described as bite-sized, melt-in-your-mouth bear claws, little puffs of almond that are perfect for breakfast, dessert, and any time in between. Top them with a dollop of homemade whipped cream or almond whipped cream. Try Nutella-filled ebleskiver for another yummy treat!
- 1¾ cups flour
- 2 Tbsp sugar
- ¾ tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp salt
- 3 eggs, separated
- 1¾ cups buttermilk
- Melted butter
- Homemade whipped cream or almond whipped cream
- Maple syrup
- Powdered sugar
- Almond filling or almond paste
- In a bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, baking powder, sugar, and salt.
- In another bowl, mix the egg yolks and buttermilk.
- Whisk the liquids into the dry mixture.
- In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites to stiff peaks.
- Gently stir the whites into the batter.
- Heat an ebleskiver pan over medium heat and brush each well with melted butter. Spoon roughly 1 Tbsp of batter into each well.
- Spoon about 1 tsp almond filling into the batter and then top with 1 Tbsp more of batter.
- Cook the pancakes for about 3-4 minutes until the tops start to bubble and the bottoms start to turn a light golden brown.
- Then flip each pancake using wooden skewers or chopsticks.
- Cook them for an additional 3 minutes until both sides are golden.
- Serve the ebleskiver immediately with maple syrup, powdered sugar and homemade whipped cream or almond cream.
- This recipe makes roughly 30 pancakes. You can cut the recipe down or you can refrigerate any leftover batter and make pancakes or waffles with it the next day.
