Welcome, welcome 2014! I can’t wait for the New Year!! Since the top two posts from 2013 on Dieter’s Downfall were Chocolate Peanut Butter Roulade and Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake, I decided to ring in 2014 with another Chocolate and Peanut dessert.
I got an Cast-Aluminum Nonstick Aebleskiver Pana 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 warm, but I still ate them cold.
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.
If peanut butter isn’t your thing, try them with Rolos, Snickers, or 3 Musketeers. I bet any of them would be great!
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!
These little pop-in-your-mouth pancakes are going to knock your socks off!
- 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
- 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 ⅔ 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 chop stick 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 clam shells), 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!
