These Nutella ebelskivers (a.k.a. Danish pancakes) are light and fluffy pancake balls filled with chocolatey hazelnut goodness. And they're about to be your new favorite breakfast treat!
I’m just going to come right out and say it: if you love pancakes but you’ve never made ebelskivers, you’re doing it wrong. Ebelskivers are the breakfast treat you never knew you needed, but, once you've tried them, won't be able to live without.
What exactly are ebelskivers, you ask? Ebelskivers (or æbleskivers, as they’re called in their native Denmark) are small pancake balls made from a light and airy pancake batter. Basically, imagine that a pancake and a donut hole had a baby, and that’s an ebelskiver! They’re delicious served plain, just dusted with a bit of confectioners' sugar, but they’re best when stuffed with flavorful fillings like fruit jam or nut butter. My all-time favorite filling: Nutella chocolate hazelnut spread!
Nutella ebelskivers are one of my favorite breakfast indulgences, with their light and airy exterior and rich, luscious filling. They're made from a simple pancake batter, which includes whipped egg whites in order to achieve the ebelskivers' light, fluffy texture. Fresh out of the pan they'll have a perfectly golden crust and a gooey, chocolatey-hazelnut center that's simply to die for!
One important note: homemade ebelskivers do require a special pan (I love my Nordic Ware ebelskiver pan), but after one taste of Nutella ebelskivers you'll see that this pan is worthy of a spot in your kitchen!Print
