New Year's Morning: Ebelskievers

New Year's Morning, 2011: dawned a brilliantly sunny day, perfect for a batch or two of homemade ebelskievers, plump little Danish pancakes, filled with strawberry-rhubarb jam, fresh blueberries, pecans and walnuts, and dusted with a pouff of confectioner's sugar. 

They are so simple to prepare and create such a buzz at the table that it's a wonder they haven't become more popular. We mixed up a batter of eggs, flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and whole milk, added a dash of vanilla and let it sit for a few minutes to rise.  Then we filled each cavity of the ebelskiever pan half way, added our fillings, and topped each cake with more batter. Wait a few minutes, turn with wooden chopsticks, and slide out of the pan when lightly browned.

Top off with a generous dusting of confectioner's sugar and serve with hot cider or steaming hot coffee. A great way to start the New Year, and any day!
