Ebelskivers are small Danish puffed pancakes made in a special multi-well pan. Sweet and savoury variations of this petite puff are appearing on restaurant menus and at farmer's markets across Europe. The increasing availability of the pans at department stores and supermarkets has encouraged home cooks to join in the fun of this tasty treat. The pans are also a top selling item on the Internet and in gourmet food shops, too. Ebelskivers, with their ideal shape and size, appeal to home cooks of all kinds for all occasions. This fantastic cookbook goes well beyond a collection of recipes, as it is an appliance/equipment handbook, too. The recipes range from simple to sophisticated, yet all are convenient and delicious treats, which range from classic ebelskivers, to newer breakfast options, to make-ahead appetizers, to snacks for the family. Even decadent desserts can be made in minutes all without turning on the oven. Just a small sample of these sumptuous recipes include: Cranberry Orange Ebelskivers, Buttery Beignet Puffs, Maple-Pecan Ebelskivers; Smoked Salmon & Dill Puffs, Roasted Pepper Feta Puffs, Crab Cake Puffs; Chocolate Ganache Ebelskivers, Praline Puffs, Browned Butter Ebelskivers; Buckwheat Blini Puffs, Lamington Puffs, Spanakopita Puffs, Linzer Puffs. The 150 recipes deliver inspired flavour combinations in addition to vegan and gluten-free variations of the classic and simplified batters, both of which can be substituted for recipes throughout the collection. And the step-by-step photos of the ebelskiver techniques ensure a perfect result every time.
