Ingredients

Makes 4 servings

  • 2 cups pancake mix
  • 1 - 1/3 cups milk
  • 1 egg
  • 2 Tbs. vegetable oil
  • 1 Tbs. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/2 - 3/4 cup leftover applesauce
  • powdered sugar for topping

Make Ebelskivers

Using an Ebelskiver pan, set your stovetop to medium low and coat pan with butter. Mix your pancake batter based on your box directions. Place a very small amount of pancake batter into each of the Ebelskiver divots, less than half full.

Add Applesauce

Next, place a dollop of applesauce over the cooking dough. Wait two-to-three minutes before topping with additional pancake batter, turn over with hand, and rotate until all sides are golden.

Garnish

Top with powdered sugar and serve warm.
