  • 3 c. flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 3 c buttermilk
  • 6 Tbsp melted shortening or vegetable oil


Combine dry ingredients in medium bowl and set aside. In a large mixing bowl, beat together eggs and sugar. Stir in buttermilk and shortening; then add the dry ingredients, gently stirring until blended.

Heat ebleskiver pan on stovetop. Thoroughly coat each cup with shortening. Fill each cup three-quarters full with batter. As it begins to bubble around edges, turn gradually with a skewer or chopstick. Cook until golden brown all around.

Serves 6 to 8.
