Ebelskivers with Frozen White Chocolate `Parfait

This dessert was inspired by pancakes and whipped cream. The pancakes are round from being cooked in a special cast iron skillet called an ebelskiver pan. Traditionally a danish specialty, it's said to have been created by vikings that cooked on their war dented helmets. The frozen souffle is whipped cream fold into a white chocolate ice cream base and frozen solid. This was a dish that was very hard to stay away from since there is nothing healthy about this dessert. Originally I first learned about this style of pancakes from a restaurant that I worked at back in Phoenix, Arizona. Every Sunday we would set up a station and fry these round pancakes for guest and fill them with berries or chocolate.
