My mother was a wonderful baker. Surprisingly, most of her baking she did without the aid of a cookbook. I hope my sharing brings back memories for you...for me, it's in my mother's kitchen, with her standing behind me, and letting me create.

Originating from Denmark, these light, puffy, sphere-shaped pancakes are the perfect treat for breakfast, snacking or as an accompaniment to your dinner entree. They require just a few ingredients, that you probably have on-hand; flour, eggs, butter, milk, a little sugar and baking powder, however deciding on the filling is half the fun. This morning I had a little raspberry jam left (from a previous baking experience) and opened a jar of my blueberry jam to fill these little delicacies. My daughter, Kelly, gave me my ebelskiver pan a few years ago for Mother's Day, but recently I came across...yes, you guessed it, a book devoted to Ebelskivers by Kevin Crafts. The author not only serves up a delightful array of sweet pancakes, but adds a chapter on savory: ebelskivers, crab cake style, smoked salmon & dill ebelskivers, etc. Truly an inspiration to make for your family and the perfect kid-friendly breakfast, as well as a show-stopping hors d'oeuvre or entree accompaniment. As the author says..."the possibilities are endless! View recipe, courtesy of Williams-Sonoma, where you can also purchase the pan. http://www.williams-sonoma.com/recipe/blueberry-filled-pancakes.html
