Have a house full of holiday overnight guests? Don’t stress! The Park Cafe in Charleston, South Carolina, has a recipe for Danish ebelskivers that will delight anyone. Ebelskiver are little balls of sweet goodness similar to a pancake, except in this case the batter is cooked in a special pan that creates puffy, golden brown cakes. The Park Cafe serves them for dessert with blueberry lemon preserves, but they are versatile and can also be eaten at breakfast, or made with a savory batter and served with pimento cheese or figs and prosciutto for an afternoon snack.
