Friday Favorites

Thought I'd share a favorite, Ebelskivers (also known as filled pancakes). I've been meaning to share it for awhile. I got this awesome pan from Williams Sonoma for Christmas. It's one of those fun pans that I am now addicted to giving as a gift to people who like to cook. My kids LOVE it. And it makes more than just filled pancakes. I even have an ebelskiver cookbook that has recipes for dinner, appetizers, and desserts.
Here are our favorite filled pancakes that we make on the weekends. The trick to the batter (which is a regular pancake batter recipe) is separating the eggs and whipping the egg whites to peaks before mixing all together. Our two favorite fillings are lemon custard and chocolate chips. (Not together of course) So here is what our Sunday mornings look like....

Adding the whipped egg whites to the pancake mix:

So if you are looking for something new to try in your kitchen...GO GET ONE. I love it!! And I'm sure everyone else in your family will love it too!!
