So I’ve spent a good 3 minutes trying to find the perfect way to describe my Ebleskiver pancakes. In those 3 minutes, I have found that there are just no words. They are too good to be true. Honestly…I’m “typeless” – get it? Since you can’t actually hear me speak…I’m not speechless…but typeless… (I think since I always feel I have to explain my jokes, they are probably not very funny)
Phew – now ^ that ^ must have been painful to read. ANYWAY – THANK YOU again Aunt Diane!!!!! I’m am very very happy with my present
So here’s what I did. I started out by creating my own version of the basic recipe:
- 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/2 tsp. baking powder
- 1/2 tbsp. brown sugar
- 1/8 tsp. salt
- 2 egg whites
- 1/3 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 1/4 cup cottage cheese
I mixed all the ingredients together until only the cottage cheese lumps remained. After spraying each little cup with cooking spray, I poured the batter evenly into the pan like so:
I turned the burner to medium high heat and let the pancakes start cooking. Eventually, I realized I used too much batter because they started looking like this:
So then when I started flipping them, the batter sort of went everywhere. I thought all was lost because they started looking like this:
Guess my flipping skills need some work 😉 Fortunately, however, this little pan still was able to work its magic, and within a few more minutes I had a plate full of seven perfect pancake balls:
I drizzled them with some maple syrup and had the most delicious, voluminous and looks-sinful-but-is-really-not breakfast ever!
The nutritional value can’t be beat either! All of this for 350 calories, 30 grams of protein and 8 grams of fiber! Even if you don’t have the pan, give the recipe a try – you won’t be disappointed!!
