Ebelskivers (pronounced "able-skeevers") where originally made in Denmark and are a fun twist on the traditional pancake! They can be made with a variety of fillings and require ingredients that you most likely have handy in your kitchen.
My Mother in-law has a fabulous cookbook that has a plethora of various Ebelskiver recipes. It was so hard for me to decide which one to make, but I thought the raspberry jam-filled Ebelskivers looked delicious...and don't worry, they did not disappoint!

*You will also need a special Ebelskiver pan, and small wooden skewers for this recipe.
Step 1. To make the basic batter, start by wisking together
the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
Step 2. In a small bowl, lightly whisk the egg yolks,
then whisk in the milk, melted butter, and vanilla
Step 3. Add the yolk mixture to the flour mixture.
With a wooden spoon, stir until well blended.
Step 4. In a separate bowl, using an electric mixer on high speed,
beat the eggs whites until high peaks form.
Step 5. Place about 1/3 of the egg white mixture on top of the batter.
Step 6. Using a rubber spatula, slice down the middle of the egg white mixture. Gently incorporate the mixtures by pulling the spatula up along the side of the bowl and then over the top. Rotate the bowl a quarter turn and repeat steps until all the egg white mixture is well incorporated. (don't let batter sit long before using)
Step 7. Preheat oven to 200 degrees F.
While the oven heats, brush your ebelskiver pan with the melted butter
and place over medium heat.
Step 8. When the butter starts to bubble, add 1 Tablespoon of batter to each well.
Step 9. Then carefully spoon 1 teaspoon of raspberry jam into the center of each ebelskiver. (Be sure to work quickly!)
Step 10. Then top with an additional 1 Tablespoon of batter.
Step 11. Let cook until the bottoms are slightly brown and crisp (about 3-5 min.) Using 2 wooden skewers, turn the pancakes and cook on the second side about 3 min.
Step 12. Transfer your finished ebelskivers to the warmed oven,
and repeat steps for 2 more batches.
