Chocolate Ebelskivers

It was time to test the new chocolate ebelskiver mix from WS. We used three different fillings and they all turned out wicked awesome but the caramel was the best!

Nutella, Peanut Butter and Caramel Filled

The recipe for Chocolate Ebelskivers is on the mix if you buy it. If you don’t, I’ve attempted to give you a recipe below…

For the pancakes:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 Tbs. granulated sugar
  • 4 eggs, separated
  • 2 cups milk
  • 4 Tbs. (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted, plus more for cooking
  • cocoa powder (if you want to make them chocolate)

For the filling:
We used Nutella, Peanut butter and Caramel sauce right out of the jars (placed them in the fridge for 10 minutes b4 so they would be easier to work with). You want it to be a paste like consistency not soft and runny.

To make the pancakes, in a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt and granulated sugar. In another bowl, lightly whisk the egg yolks, then whisk in the milk and the 4 Tbs. melted butter. Whisk the egg yolk mixture into the flour mixture until well combined; the batter will be lumpy. Using an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, beat the egg whites on high speed until stiff but not dry peaks form, 2 to 3 minutes. Using a rubber spatula, gently fold the whites into the batter in two additions.

Put 1/8 tsp. melted butter in each well of a filled-pancake pan. Set over medium heat and heat until the butter begins to bubble. Pour 1 Tbs. batter into each well. Spoon 1 tsp. of the filling of your choice into the center of each pancake and top with 1 Tbs. batter. Cook until the bottoms are golden brown and crispy, about 3 minutes. Using 2 skewers, flip the pancakes over and cook until golden and crispy, about 3 minutes more. Transfer the pancakes to a plate. Repeat with the remaining batter and filling. Dust with powdered sugar.

Makes 35 to 40.

  1. Carmel was sooooo good, especially when you drizzle even MORE carmel over them!

  2. “Put 1/8 tsp. melted butter in each well of a filled-pancake pan.” Am I missing something here? What is a pancake pan and what is it filled with? These look delicious – help?

  3. Patti, in order to get the round shape you need a special pan. You can see it here:
    They are available at Williams-Sonoma

  4. I have aebelskiver mix at home that I purchased in Solvang CA. I never thought about making them chocolatey! How much cocoa powder do you think I should use?
    Thanks for the great idea.

  5. Joley- Good question…I wish I knew how much chocolate to add but I bake with recipes so I have no clue. All I know is that the mix looked and smelled like hot chocolate powder. Maybe someone out there can help us out?

  6. YUM! I love these little guys and that cake plate is super cute!!

  7. I’ve never heard of these, only beignets.. but they look so good with powdered sugar on top. Just the perfect amount of chocolatiness.. YUM! I can’t wait to find them in a bakery locally!

  8. My pan arrived today from Williams- Sonoma and I cant wait to try making them for my family. I ordered the mixes but I wanted some ideas for things to put inside. Yours are great!!!

  9. Thanks Mindy! Have fun! BTW, I added links to other varieties I have tried at the bottom of the blog post.
