Ebelskivers with Streusel Banana Pecan Topping

There are so many possibilities and flavor combinations to be enjoyed when making ebelskivers. Having several basic batters to work with will reward both sweet and savory treats. Initially, my idea of ebelskivers were that of a breakfast type food…in the categories of brunch and morning fare like pancakes, waffles, and French toast/Pain perdu. Until I had the pleasure of adding the Kevin Crafts Ebelskiver cookbook to my library, I hadn’t even considered the creativeness and possibilities that these Danish pancakes could have.

I’ve modified the Streusel-Topped Ebelskivers from Kevin Craft’s cookbook by adding cinnamon to the batter and adding slices of banana between the delicate crunch, sugary-pecan streusel and the pancake batter. Choose to include or not to include the slice of banana that is wedged between the tasty-textured topping and bread part…it’s reminiscent of a banana fritter or delicious maruya. If you like bananas…give it a try with the bananas on some of the pancakes – I don’t think you’ll be disappointed. It’s a sweet, tasty surprise that you’ll be anxiously wanting to grab another ebelskiver to enjoy its flavors and texture.

E-b-e-l-s-k-i-v-e-r-s…addicting when made well with good flavors. My Hubbs may have appropriately coined it as “Evilskivers.”

If you haven’t tried your hand at ebelskivers before, I encourage you to give them a try and not get discouraged.   It may take some practice, practicularly depending on the batter you’re using. Be patient – you will perfect it. Last year I featured a Pumpkin Pie Ebelskiver from the same book by Kevin Crafts. I added a list of Teenie Notes to that post. The Pumpkin Pie Ebelskiver, while delicious and worth it in it’s own right, especially if you like pumpkin pie – is an example of a more advanced ebelskiver practitioner because the batter is a bit more challenging to work with, but so worth it!

This is the kind of dish that memories are made of – either by your serving it to loved ones and/or their helping you in the kitchen with its deliciousness.

These look amazing! I have an ebelskiver pan, but so far I have only made plain vanilla. But, I have some ripe bananas and this might just be the thing to use them up! :D

I don’t think I’ve ever heard of anything like an ebelskiver but they look super delicious! I am now very intrigued and want to make these.


Kim - Liv Life October 8, 2011

I love this!! My mom is Danish and has made Ebelskivers since I was a kids. Now Liv gets them from Grandma and loves them. They use a mix, though, and I’m thrilled to see different recipes. I think I just might have to pick up that book. Love these guys! I’m super excited to see new recipes.


Shannon @ dinnerordessert October 7, 2011

I love these things! My parents have one of the Williams Sonoma pans and I beg them to make them for me every time I go home. I need to break down and buy one because these look great!

Where can I get the pan.?


Cristina - Teenie Cakes October 5, 2011

Hi Elena: The ebelskiver pans can sometimes be a seasonal offering, but I have seen them at Williams Sonoma, Bed, Bath & Beyond and Amazon.com. I’ve added some convenient links under the “Teenie Notes” to some of the ebelskiver pans from those retailers. :)


Tina@flourtrader October 5, 2011

My niece has one of these special pans, I will need to borrow it and make these soon. They look so delicious and the topping looks like the top of a pecan pie-yum! Thanks for sharing this one.
