Village Lane Staff received the gift of an Ebelskiver pan and Danish Pancake Mix two years ago, and often recommend these sweet or savory treats.  

This gift is particularly welcome for families with children who are learning to cook and who will love the ease of turning out something so delicious for weekend mornings.   Parents will  appreciate the easy clean-up of the specially designed Ebelskiver pan.  

To save on calories and fat, we spray the pan with Pam cooking spray instead of using butter to coat the pan.

The pan, wooden turners and mix wrapped up together with a great big bow makes a lovely and thoughtful Made in U.S. A. housewarming gift for friends.

Williams-Sonoma Ebelskiver Pancake Mix

Beloved in their native Denmark, ebelskivers are puffy, spherical filled pancakes that are made sweet or savory for breakfast, dessert or hors d’oeuvres. Use our mix to make authentic ebelskivers at home; just add milk, butter and egg yolks, and fold in whipped egg whites to give the batter its signature lightness. Both flavored with Our Classic mix is sweetened with sugar and a hint of pure Madagascar Bourbon vanilla; Chocolate is flavored with premium cocoa and vanilla. Bake them in our ebelskiver pan (sold separately), and fill them with your favorite ingredients – meat, cheese, fruit, chocolate or applesauce, the traditional Danish filling. Made in USA.
