The kids are going to love these Chocolate Peanut Butter Aebleskiver for dessert. They are little Danish Pancakes made in a special pan.
Chocolate and Peanut Butter Aebleskivers
Have you ever tried to make Æbleskiver? They are delightful little puffy pancakes made in a specialty pan that turns them into little balls of deliciousness.
I got a Cast-Aluminum Nonstick Aebleskiver Pan a few months ago but never did anything with it. You’re really supposed to add fruit to the centers, but I decided to add some mini Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups to the centers.
Oh my! How Wonderful!!
The chocolate and peanut butter melted and got all ooey-gooey in the center of these little pancake puffs. I loved them served warm, but I still ate them cold.
I have a feeling that you’ll be seeing these again. They were really good!
I was so impressed with myself for making them. It does take some practice, so watch a YouTube video of someone making them first. There is a bit of skill required. However, if you can flip a pancake, you can turn an Aebleskiver.
I was tempted to cover these with cocoa powder, but I thought that the powdered sugar was just prettier. You could also drizzle them with chocolate syrup or melted peanut butter.
If peanut butter isn’t your thing, try them with Rolos, Snickers, or 3 Musketeers. I bet any of them would be great!
If you love pancakes, these little pancake puffs are sure to please!
Everybody in the house LOVED them! However, I had to make some “empty” ones for my daughter. Crazy child didn’t want candy in hers!
- 3 large eggs
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 3 cups buttermilk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 3 cups flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- Mini Resees' Peanut Butter Cups
- In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs and sugar. Then mix in the buttermilk, vanilla, and oil. Stir in the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt until just combined.
- Pour a few tablespoons oil in a small cup and keep near the stove along with a pastry brush to add oil into the pan between batches.
- Preheat your Cast-Aluminum Nonstick Aebleskiver Pan over medium /low heat for 4-5 minutes until hot. Brush each cup with a bit of oil.
- Add batter into each cup to fill about 2/3 of the way. Add one mini Reese's Peanut Butter Cup to the centers of the batter. Then cover with a little more batter. Let the Aebelskivers cook for a minute until tiny bubbles begin to show on the surface and the edges look like they are setting a bit.
- Using a chopstick and small dual prong fork, slide the dough on its side. the uncooked batter will spill out into the center to cook. Once you have turned them all on their sides (they will look like clamshells), then continue to flip them all the way over. You need to keep them moving to prevent burning. Remove from the pan and keep warm until ready to serve.
- Top with powdered sugar, melted chocolate, whipped cream, etc.
- This recipe made a lot of Aebleskiver! Mix up the fillings. There will be plenty for everyone!
