Chocolate Peanut Butter filled Aebleskiver is a decadent breakfast treat or a wonderful dessert! from #dietersdownfall.comChocolate Peanut Butter Crepe Cake with Aebleskivers – Day One – Aebleskiver

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.

Three Yummy Chocolate and Peanut Butter Recipes to make these Amazing Crepe Cake with Aebleskivers. from #dietersdownfall.comI 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.

Little Pancake Puffs are usually filled with fruit. These are filled with mini Reese's PB cups! from #dietersdownfall.comI have a feeling that you’ll be seeing these again. They were really good!

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.

Aebleskiver's dusted with powdered sugar for a yummy dessert treat. from #dietersdownfall.comI was tempted to cover these with cocoa powder, but I thought that the powdered sugar was just prettier. You could also drizzle them with chocolate syrup or melted peanut butter.

If peanut butter isn’t your thing, try them with Rolos, Snickers, or 3 Musketeers. I bet any of them would be great!

Best served warm with gooey chocolate peanut butter centers. Aebleskiver's from #dietersdownfall.comIf you love pancakes, these little pancake puffs are sure to please!

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!

Aebleskiver with Reese

Prep time: 

Cook time: 

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
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1½ teaspoons baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Top with powdered sugar, melted chocolate, whipped cream, etc.
  7. This recipe made a lot of aebleskiver! Mix up the fillings. There will be plenty for everyone!

  1. Oh my, don’t these look like a celebration on a plate. I think I must make these even if that flipping operation looks tricky.

    • Karyn Granrud Karyn Granrud says:

      Think about the first time you flipped a pancake and had it land on the one next to it… You learn as you go and by the end of it, they all come out perfectly!

  2. I absolutely love aebleskiver! My grandpa used to make the for me and my sisters every time we went to visit. They were amazing as they were, but I can only imagine they’re even better with chocolate and peanut butter inside. Also, not sure if this helps, but my grandpa used a knitting needle to turn the pancakes and that always seemed to work out really well.

    • Karyn Granrud Karyn Granrud says:

      I want to try them with fruit next. I think the possibilities are endless! I tried a chop stick, but found that the little two pronged fork worked well. I need to work with the sticks some more.

  3. You had me at chocolate and peanut butter! They look delicious and perfect for New Year’s Day breakfast.

  4. Ohhhh these look so good! I’ve been wanting to get one of those pans too! They look so so delicious! Happy new year

  5. Oh my, this looks amazing! My sister and I bought my mom a pan some time ago, and we were stumped as to what other recipes we should attempt besides the ones in the recipe booklet. I saw your link on Bloom Designs and had to visit!

    P.S. – I would love it if you linked up at Do Tell Tuesday with the gals and me!

  6. All I can say is OMG! I have been making aebleskivers since learning from my mom. I love them! We usually put a small drop of jam in the center. My grandmother was born in Denmark and these are a family tradition. I am going to try your recipe next time. Thanks for sharing!

    • Karyn Granrud Karyn Granrud says:

      You need to teach me! I had some deflate on me and I’m guessing that’s because I punctured them when trying to turn them. I’ll get the hang of it. I’m definately making them again!

  7. Great project !!

    I would love you to come and share @ Craft, Create & Inspire linky party !!!

    Look forward to seeing you there
