I am just going to preface this right here. These biscuit ebelskiver are addictive. Seriously. I’m sitting here writing this and they’re calling my name. “Chriiiiiiiiiiiiiistiiiiiiiiiiiie! You know you want to eat the rest of us!”

I do. I really do.

The ebelskiver pan was part of a blogging event. They were a sponsor and I jumped at the chance to get one. I had been wanting to get one of these pans for a while. I’m sure no one else wanted this pan, but I sure did. And I am enjoying it immensely!!

Yes, I know there’s only a few ebelskiver recipes on the blog. There’s a pumpkin cheesecake ebelskiver and a peanut butter apple ebelskiver recipe. I’ve planned on making a few other recipes, but just didn’t get around to it. I mean, molten chocolate ebelskiver sounds divine doesn’t it?

However, life gets in the way and I don’t get around to making all the recipes I want. And, well, I procrastinate. I’m just going to confess that right up front. For example, berry week that I just participate in? I had two. TWO recipes made before the event started. Sadly, I had to back out of one day because the strawberries were all moldy after a week. A WEEK! WT….

For those that don’t know, I’m working from home. Most would think that’s more relaxing. I don’t have the long commute and mile and half walking to do every day. But, sitting there in the chair all day is more exhausting. It’s focused with few breaks. When I’m finished working, I just want to take a nap. So, I bailed on the hand pies because my strawberries weren’t good, and I was just tired. Oh so tired.

For this week, I had a few recipes under my belt. Three to be exact. I just had to make two but wound up remaking one of them. The hash. I needed there to be more hash! The eggs were too big for the amount of hash I had. So, I made it twice. Not that we minded. It’s so delicious.

I had to make the sausage egg and cheese grits and these ebelskiver. Both of which turned out better than I could have even though they would. I even saved half the grits so I could have them next week. And will definitely be making more grits to have for breakfast while I’m working from home.

Another thing I want to make while I’m working from home are these baked breakfast egg cups.  These egg cups and my biscuit ebelskivers would make for a delicious make ahead work breakfast.  When I start going back into the office again, I will need all the make ahead recipes I can find to make the transition to working in the office easier.

By the way, these biscuit ebelskivers are not just for breakfast!  They make a delicious bite to have with a bowl of chili or soup.  I dipped some into my mole chili and plan to serve them alongside this ham and bean soup.  If you have leftover turkey from the holidays, then you can serve these ebelskivers with this 30 minute leftover turkey bean soup.  

I also cleaned a TON of leftovers out of the fridge, walked the dogs, started laundry, and then started these biscuit ebelskiver. Y’all these suckers take no time at all to make. I cannot stress this enough! I mean, I filled the wells, let them cook while I was doing dishes. Turned them over. Ran upstairs to put the laundry in the dryer. Took those out and refilled them. Finished washing dishes. Turned those over. Sat down for a few minutes to start this post, and then they were finished. Granted, I made a half batch.

But It just goes to show you how these are mainly hands off. Just keep your pan on medium heat and you’re good. You can let them cook. In fact, you SHOULD let them cook because you want the inside to be cooked through and not pasty. That makes them un-addictive? Is that even a word? Whatever the opposite of addictive is. Despicable? Who knows? You get my point. 

But these are addictive. They’re oh so buttery. The inside is tender and perfectly biscuit like. The outside is slightly crispy and even more buttery. There’s a theme. Butter. And these are totally popable biscuit bites that you and your family will love. 

You split them open and there’s a delicious little pocket to hold jams, jellies, gravies, or whatever else you want to fill it with. They’re the perfect little biscuit bite for your brunch bar or breakfast board.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup melted butter, divided
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar

Instructions

  1. Combine the flour with the baking soda, salt, and cream of tartar in a medium mixing bowl.
  2. Stir 2/3 cup of the melted butter into the buttermilk.
  3. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour the buttermilk mixture in the center.
  4. Stir with a wooden spoon or spatula until combined.
  5. Heat an ebelskiver pan over medium heat.
  6. Brush the wells with butter before dropping 1 1/2 tablespoons of the batter into each well.
  7. Cook 5 to 7 minutes or until golden brown.
  8. Carefully turn the ebelskivers over using two toothpicks. Place one toothpick on the side of the well and push down in a scooping motion to turn the ebelskiver over. Use the other toothpick for additional leverage in turning them over.
  9. Cook an additional 6 to 8 minutes or until they're golden brown.
  10. Remove them from the pan to a serving plate or basket and repeat with remaining dough.
  11. Serve with jams, jellies, sausage gravy, what you normally put on or serve with biscuits.
