Weekend breakfasts are a real treat at our house and I try to make pancakes at least once a week. No Bisquick here--after getting a buttermilk pancake recipe from Martha Stewart, I realized how easy it was to make them from scratch. It's been a few years and I thought that maybe my pancake-skills were ready to be tested. Introduce the ebelskiver pan from Williams-Sonoma...the Danish-inspired filled pancakes are awesome! My first batch was a little burnt, but after a little practice I turned out perfectly golden orbs. The beauty is, they can be filled with sweet or savory fillings. I've included a recipe for the batter, below. It's a little more work than simple pancake batter, but whipping up the egg whites separately results in a light and fluffy batter that makes it all worth it.
