Banana foster Ebelskivers


2 cups all-purpose flour
¾ tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
4 tbsp granulated sugar
½ tsp salt
3 eggs, separated
1 ¾ cups buttermilk (I used 1% milk and added 4 tbsp vinegar)
2 tsp vanilla extract

3 ripe bananas
2 tbsp butter
½ cup brown sugar


In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, granulated sugar, and salt. In a small bowl, lightly whisk the egg yolks, then whisk in the buttermilk. Whisk the yolk mixture into the flour mixture until well combined; the batter will be lumpy. Stir the vanilla extract into the mixture. In an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, beat the egg whites on high speed until stiff peaks form, 2 to 3 minutes. Using a rubber spatula, gently fold the egg whites into the batter in 2 additions.

To make the filling, chop the bananas into small cubes. Melt the butter over medium heat and add the bananas. Once bananas have begun to soften, add the brown sugar and stir to coat in the melted sugar. Remove from heat and set aside.

Drop ½ tsp. of butter into each well of an ebelskiver pan set over medium heat. Once the butter begins to bubble, spoon a tbsp. of batter into each well. Then top the batter with a tsp. of the banana mixture.

Finally, top the bananas with another tbsp. of batter. Using skewers to flip them, cook the pancakes until both sides are golden brown. Transfer to a plate and repeat the steps with the remaining batter.

Top with whip cream and sprinkle some cinnamon on top and enjoy!!!

This recipe makes about 40 servings.  Each ebelskiver is about 1.5- 2 pts, without any toppings.  You can cut bakc the calories by using a light margarine instead of butter in each well.  For my buttermilk, I made my own using 1% milk and vinegar but skim milk would work just as well.
