Translation: Danish pancake-light and cakey in the middle, crispy and buttery on the outside! SOOO good and fun for a special breakfast or brunch! (or dinner!) Need special pan.

1 3/4 C flour

3/4 t baking soda

1 t baking powder

1 1/2 T sugar

1/2 t salt

3 egg yolks

1 1/3 C buttermilk

1/2 C sour cream

5 egg whites

5 T butter, melted

Mix dry ingred. Set aside. Mix egg yolks, buttermilk, sour cream together. Fold in dry ingred. Whip egg whites until firm peaks form. Fold into batter. Heat pan, pour in maybe a 1/4 t melted butter in each well. Pour 1 T batter into well, then add 1 teaspoon jam or other filling, then another T batter. Flip with chop sticks or skewers after about 3 minutes or until golden on the bottom and crispy. Then 3 minutes more to finish. Serve warm with a dusting of powdered sugar. *When I'm lazy I just put the jam on the plate with the pancakes instead of filling them! I love homemade raspberry jam on these! Whip cream with a little syrup added while whipping is really good. Nutella filled with diced bananas on top. Blueberries would be good! You could also roll them in cinnamon and sugar! The cream cheese or mascarpone cheese whipped with lemon curd is my very favorite! Sky's the limit! Have fun!

1/4 C Mascerpone cheese at room temp. or cream cheese

1/4 C lemon curd

Whip together (add a little lemon zest to batter for extra lemon flavor!)

1/2 C sugar

2 T flour

1 1/2 T cinn.

1/4 t salt

4 T unsalted butter cut into cubes and put at room temp.

Frosting for cinnabun:

3 oz. cream cheese-room temp

4 T unsalted butter-room temp.

1 1/2 C powdered sugar

3-4 T milk

These are soooooo good!!! I couldn't stop eating them. We had them with homemade raspberry jam and they were heavenly. I also really enjoyed them with syrup poured over. DELICIOUS!
