Ebelskivers are little Danish puff pancakes that you will love and pass down through the generations. They are surprisingly simple to make and only have a few pantry staple ingredients in them.

  • ebelskiver pan



  • Combine egg yolks, buttermilk, all-purpose gluten-free flour, sugar, Real Salt, baking soda and baking powder until well blended
  • Let the mixture rest for 30 minutes
  • Beat two egg whites until stiff peaks form and fold into batter
  • Heat an Ebelskiver pan over medium heat
  • Spray generously with non-stick cooking spray or put a tsp oil to each cup
  • When the pan is hot, pour batter into each cup until 3/4 full
  • When batter starts to bubble, make quarter turns with a needle until a ball forms
  • Turn until golden and needle inserted comes out clean
  • Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve as is or with jam


*I recommend using a cast iron ebelskiver pan. The flavor is more authentic and they are very easy to use.
