If you’ve found your way here (from the Ebelskiver How-To) then yay for you! Because you have a chance to win one of TEN ebelskiver pans I’m giving away today.

Now here’s the deal. I love me some ebelskivers. And I’m fairly set in my ways. I’ve been using the same two cast iron ebelskiver pans and the same knitting needle (or a pair of metal chopsticks if I get all wild and crazy) for the past 11 years and I can’t say enough about the pans that I have.
cast iron pan

The key to the cast iron pan working to create perfect ebelskivers is for it to be properly seasoned. There are lots of articles and how-to’s online to do this so I won’t go into that, but if you win one of these cast iron pans (or buy one on your own), promise me with all your heart and soul you will season it. And then you’ll be good to go. Also, take care to dry it completely before storing it so it doesn’t rust and I always give it a light rub with oil before putting it away inside a ziploc bag in the cupboard.

Most of the reviews on Amazon are positive for the cast iron ebelskiver pans. The negative reviews consist of people who say everything sticks (and I’m betting they didn’t follow the season-your-cast-iron-pan-lecture) or that the cups are too small. Some people only flip ebelskivers once – like a pancake (but in the round cups). I don’t make them like that. I can see if you did want to do that then the size of this ebelskiver pan would be too small but the way I make them, turning them often to create a fluffy ball of ebelskiver, works magically well with the cast iron pan.

Here’s another cast iron ebelskiver pan (Camp Chef brand) that looks to be a bit wider on the bottom and generally just a tad bigger than my favorites. Can you tell that I’m a fan of the cast iron variety of pans?

Recently (or fairly recently) there have been a few larger, nonstick pans come on the market. This one has pretty high reviews on Amazon and it looks to be a bit larger than the one I have (both the cup size and in diameter).
nonstick pan

I don’t think the ebelskivers themselves need to be larger but I can see how the nonstick coating would appeal to many. The only caution I’d give is to be careful not to scratch it up as you are turning the ebelskivers with your old knitting needle (might need to use a silicone type tool here). Since I have neither seen this pan in real life nor used it, I’m not giving any of these away today but if you are in the market to buy an ebelskiver pan, your research might lead you this direction.

Ok, here’s the deal. To enter the giveaway, leave ONE comment on this post telling me what would be your ideal topping for ebelskivers. Hands down mine is strawberries, nutella and whipped cream. Because I’m ultra-healthy like that.

I’ll announce winners in a few days! Love ya!

    We make a cinnamon filling and then top it with a cinnamon roll glaze. All fat free and no calories of course. I want to try lemon curd and top with lemon cream (from my favorite dessert) and berries. Mmmmmmm.

  2. Dlonna says:

    These are a childhood memory for me. My dad would make them on Sunday morning before church. I would love a pan!

  3. Heather Bologna says:

    I have always wanted to try these! I think I would go for a jelly donut taste – maybe a drizzle of raspberry purée with a dusting of powdered sugar. Yum!

  4. Libby says:

    All the way from Papua Indonesia the Wild family thinks fresh papaya, pineapple and good ol’ maple syrup!

  5. Salem says:

    Yay for another breakfast food. I get so bored! My favorite topping, for pancakes, is vanilla ice cream with a homemade warm berry sauce (think strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries….sorta smashed together in a sauce pan and poured over the ice cream). For these, I’d go with strawberries, blueberries and raspberries with either ice cream or whipped cream. Chocolate or nutella wouldn’t hurt either. Although peanut butter and maple syrup is a close second.

  6. Amanda says:

    Any type of fruit topping!

  7. Kaylene P says:

    I would have to go with some sort of chocolate sauce with strawberries and/ or raspberries, dusted with powdered sugar for measure.

  32. Samantha Bowman says:

    Growing up, my grandparents always made them! We had them whenver they visited (especially at Christmas), and my grandmother would lug that heavy cast iron pan across the country to make sure the tradition lived on! My aunt now has the passed down pan, and I would love one of my own. If I win, I would dip them in cinnamon sugar to bring back the memories of so long ago!

  33. Janette says:

    Maple syrup, berries and whip cream!!!! (But the cream cheese in the middle idea is intriguing to me too.)

  34. Julia says:

    My dad makes these and I’d love a pan! We serve them with a variety of toppings: apple pie filling and whipped cream, strawberries and whipped cream, butter and powdered sugar, powdered sugar and lemon, peach freezer jam…they are good however you serve them! Thanks for the recipe. I’ll have to try it and see if I like it better than my dad’s!

  42. Amy says:

    Hands-down, Nutella MUST be involved. I would either do the strawberries, Nutella, and whipped cream thing (you are a woman after my own hear, Mel!), or just some plain Nutella and either my homemade white grape syrup or peach freezer jam. Why, oh, why does Nutella taste SO DARN GOOD???? 🙂 Thanks for the recipe! (and yes, we do ebelskiver ;).
