Christmas Morning Ebelskivvers

I believe this is a Scandinavian recipe.  My mom gave us the pan many years ago and  we have just made it a tradition to have these Christmas morning.  A delicious pancake, so to speak, drench it in syrup and you are good to go.  Jam is also good with these tasty morsels.   

My girls surprised me Christmas morning by wearing festive outfits, make up and jewelry so I could take photos of them in clothes other than pj’s.   Let’s just say that the guys were not too happy about the idea of changing out of comfy thermals and sweats.   But they were good sports and went along with it. 

The best thing about this Christmas was my Amaryllis blooming exactly on Christmas day.  Virtually no effort for such beauty.

    Those pancakey things look delicious and I love your family picture. How nice that everyone got dressed up. Caity and I wore our pj’s all day, but I did put on makeup and do my hair, although we didn’t take any pictures. All the new cameras were under the tree still. (yeah..I got my new Nikon 3000 for Christmas.)

    I had never heard of ebelskivvers but they sound good. This area of Illinois was originally settled by Swedes so I thought we had tried just about every Swedish food imaginable;)

    Your amaryllis looks beautiful. I have one in the same pink and white colors that I love.

    I so remember those and thinking it was such a treat growing up. I didn’t know you inherited the pan…that’s cool that someone is using it.
    Nice blossom.
