Apple Filled Pancakes

Dec 1, 2019 | Breakfast

Ebelskivers are Danish pancakes that are spherical in shape with apple filling, like bits of apples or applesauce. Traditionally they’re eaten at Christmas time and often served with mulled wine. They’re dusted with powdered sugar and served with dipping jams, like strawberry, black currant, and blackberry for added sweetness. Our recipe is a take on traditional pancakes meaning maple syrup is our added sweetness.

The sweet and juicy apple filling has that classic apple pie flavor including cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and clove. A little lemon juice brightens it up. Feel free to use your favorite pancake batter recipe. The filled pancake itself shouldn’t be overly sweet. You add and control the sweetness with the syrup and powdered sugar.

The only way to make these is with a filled pancake pan. Its non-stick coating makes it easy to flip. I use a spoon and a toothpick combo. Find whatever works best for you. Feel free to adjust the amount of batter you spoon in—use less batter if you prefer more apple filling. If you do have leftover apple filling, serve it as an extra topping. These do take some time to make—only seven cook at a time, but well worth it for a special occasion. You can make these ahead for sure and warm in the oven before serving. Enjoy!
