Stuffed Pancakes Using An Ebelskiver Pan-misao

Cooking-Tips The Danish-style stuffed pancakes are delicious and easy to make at home with an Ebelskiver Pan. This Danish pancake is growing in popularity around the country. If you dont know the history of the Ebelskiver, the story goes back to Viking days when the Vikings were out in the battle field and became very hungry. A clever cook used their battle-worn armor to heat up and cook pancakes with animal fat in the dented wells. Over time, the Ebelskiver which means apple-filled pancake was made in a specialty stuffed pancake pan made of cast iron. Today, Ebleskiver pans are also made of non-stick cast aluminum that is much lighter to handle. My favorite Ebelskiver recipe is a buttermilk style obtained from the famous Danish California town of Solvang located north of Los Angeles. We would travel there quite often as children to eat these famous stuffed pancakes. Our favorite style was actually a buttermilk batter that folded in whipped egg whites and was not stuffed with fruit, cheese or meat. There are other recipes that include filling the cooking pancake with grated apple, cheese, meat or berries. There are several recipe books to consider that will give you a selection of batter and filling choices for your stuffed pancakes. The most important tip to getting the crispy and fluffy stuffed Ebelskiver pancake is to season your cast iron or aluminum Ebelskiver Pan with oil. Next, heat the pan very hot on a gas or electric stove. Add a tablespoon of oil to each hot well, pour a small ladle of batter into the hot oil and cook until brown on the bottom side. Slowly turn with knitting needle (thats what I use) or bamboo skewer, rolling the pancake to form a ball. If you are adding apples, cheese or other stuffing ingredients, this is the time to add into the middle of the pancake before you start turning. Cook until brown on all sides, and remove to paper towel to drain excess oil. Repeat with all 8 stuffed pancakes at the same time. I find I need to work fast to cook them evenly and to the perfect crispness. Glass top stove owners may want to use a lighter weight cast aluminum ebelskiver pan or put the cast iron pan on a small electric single burner cooking appliance. The last tip regarding cooking with your Ebelskiver Pan is to let it cool and then wipe it clean using a damp cloth or paper towel. Do not put in the dishwasher or soak in soapy water. You want to keep the cast iron Ebelskiver Pan seasoned well for the next time you make stuffed pancakes. At home, we serve our Ebelskiver pancakes with powdered sugar, fresh raspberries or strawberries and breakfast sausage. What a meal! For my family, these stuffed pancakes or Ebelskivers are a special occasional treat that we look forward to several times a year. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
