Abelskivers For Desert

When the 4 walls start caving in what do you do EAT! (I'm gonna get so fat this week. Our gym has also lost power and may not be opened for days.) Last night we tried Ebelskivers! Ebelskiver is a Dutch desert and its incredible! My friend got the pan and the cookbook for her bridal shower. This exciting little desert was AWESOME! We made a simple recipe and filled them with lovely goodies like homemade raspberry jam, Nutella and peanut butter.
 Here is the recipe:

  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 1 cup vegetable oil for frying
  1. In a bowl, beat the egg whites with an electric mixer until they can hold a stiff peak. Set aside.
  2. Mix together the flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda, sugar, egg yolks, melted butter and buttermilk at one time and beat until smooth. Gently fold in the egg whites last.
  3. Put about 1tablespoon of vegetable oil in the bottom of each pan cup and heat until hot. Pour in about 2 tablespoons of the batter into each cup. We filled ours with goodies. As soon as they get bubbly around the edge and then turn them. We didn't have the flipper so we used chop sticks. Continue cooking,turning the ball to keep it from burning.

Team effort! 

YUM, don't mind me. I look like scum.  
Hope everyone is doing well! We still don't have power at our house. Today should have started our vacation. We would have been down the shore, visited the Delaware Water Dap but sadly that will not be happening this year.
