Actually, I do not know if the plural of ebleskiver is ebleskivers or not!

For Christmas this year, I got a fun pan to make these little baby pancakes in. I'm a big fan of gadgetry despite my limited kitchen space - if I ever have a house of my own with a huge kitchen, I plan on needing an entire extra closet just for gadgets, and one for seasonal dishes.

Anyway, ebleskivers are little pancakes that are cooked in a little pan with round holes, and you are instructed to turn them with toothpicks. I tried filling them the first time I made a batch but most of the filling ended up baking on the outside of the ebleskiver. The first time I made them, I also followed a more traditional recipe where you separate the eggs and it was good, but to be honest, the recipe that called for biscuit mix was just as good.

And this time we had them with more leftover lemon curd, yet another good use of the deliciousness that came from the last Daring Bakers challenge.

I'm not going to post a specific recipe here. I'm still trying them out, but wanted to share the fun of a new pan and a new breakfast treat! I have heard that the one that calls for ricotta is the best one, and I have not tried it yet.

I once had a roommate that would make these. We ate them with jam and powdered sugar. Yum!

I keep seeing these on the web and everytime I do they are all I can think of for the next few hours. I can't help but think they would be great with golden syrup and maybe some cream!

As for plural ebleskiver ... the word is already a plural ... ebleskiva is the singular :0)
