Uncle Brian and Aunt Luraly introduced me to Ebelskivers when Mom and I took a trip to visit them in California when I was 8. They use traditional iron pans to make their Ebelskivers and I always wanted to have one, but Brandon surprised me one year with an electric Ebelskiver maker and I love it! These Danish treats are traditionally filled with jam or applesauce, but our favorite fillings are Nutella and lemon curd.

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
4 large eggs, separated
2 cups whole milk
4 Tbsp. butter, melted and slightly cooled
1 tsp. vanilla

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. In a small bowl, lightly whisk the egg yolks, then whisk in the milk, melted butter, and vanilla. Add the yolk mixture to the flour mixture and, and using a wooden spoon, stir until well blended. The batter will be lumpy.

In a clean bowl, suing an electric mixer on high speed, beat the egg whites until stiff, but not dry, peaks form. Using a rubber spatula, fold about one-third of the egg whites into the batter to lighten it, then fold in the rest just until no white streaks remain. Use the batter right away.
