I recently saw a recipe for Ebelskivers in Parade Magazine that called for an unbelievable amount of sugar followed by even more sugar to be sprinkled on top of the finished product. Sure, these donut-like, filled Danish fritters might remind you of dessert, but they by no means need all that sugar (and white flour) to turn out delicious!

I have to credit my dad for introducing us to these “round pancakes,” as we like to call them in our family. He started making them for all the grandkids a few years back, and my daughters liked them so much they bought me a pan so I could make them at home.

Which brings me to a valid point…you do need a special pan (pictured) to make these! And I even share the technique for making them in the short video below (you’ll have to x out the ad to see the subtitles). They are really fun to cook and, especially if you are new to the concept, they can make for a pretty special breakfast. Plus since round pancakes kind of remind me of donuts, I’m a fan. :)

Before we dive right into the video though I’d like to introduce one of our newest sponsors….The Pursuit of Healthiness! This Facebook page chronicles a busy girl’s life as she attempts to become healthy and fit while working full time. Her page almost resembles a support group of sorts so go “like” her on Facebook in order to follow along as she makes the transition to real food.

    1. What type of pan are you using – non-stick or cast iron? If it is cast iron, make sure it’s well seasoned and you add the pat of butter to help from sticking. If your heat is too high, that could also be an issue. – Nicole

      1. It is a brand new cast iron skillet. I figured it out. Had to use coconut oil to get it greased enough and had to make sure that it was really hot before I began. I turned the heat down and they finally turned out great after my third attempt of working with a cast iron skillet. Kids loved them. Thanks for the recipe. Maybe next time the kids will leave me with one.

    1. I have a Scandinavian heritage and grew up eating ebelskivers often, especially with sleepovers when my dad would treat us all to them. I can’t wait to try this healthier recipe. Thanks so much!
