Description

Tasty Breakfast treat Danish style.

Ingredients

  • 2-½ cups Flour
  • 1-¼ teaspoon Baking Soda
  • ¾ teaspoons Baking Powder
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • ½ teaspoons Nutmeg
  • 2 whole Eggs
  • 2 cups Buttermilk
  • 3 Tablespoons Melted Butter

Preparation

1. In a large bowl, mix dry ingredients. In a small bowl, beat eggs to blend with buttermilk and melted butter. Add liquids to dry ingredients and stir until evenly moistened.

2. Place an aebleskiver pan over medium-low heat. When pan is hot enough to make a drop of water dance, brush pancake cups lightly with melted butter and fill each to slightly below the rim with batter.

3. In about 1 1/2 minutes, thin crusts will form on bottoms of balls (centers will still be wet); pierce the crust with a slender wood skewer and gently pull shell to rotate the pancake ball until about half the cooked portion is above the cup rim and uncooked batter flows down into cup.

Cook until crust on bottom of ball is again firm enough to pierce, about another minute, then rotate ball with skewer until the ridge formed as the pancake first cooked is on top. Cook, turning occasionally with skewer, until balls are evenly browned and no longer moist in the center, another 10 to 12 minutes.

If balls start to get too brown before done, turn heat to low until they are cooked in the center. Lift cooked balls from pan and serve hot. Repeat to cook remaining batter.

3. Serve with powdered sugar, jam or jelly, or syrup. Can be rolled in powdered sugar and served. Jam or Jelly can be dropped in the center of uncooked Aebleskiver and cooked in the center, if desired. Yummy!

Thanks for posting this! I inherited my great aunt’s aebleskiver pan a couple of years ago and am always searching for new recipes. My grandma used to make these for us every time we’d visit. We’d always beg for “evil-skeevers”. She’d always dropped some raisins into mine before flipped them. I found out later that her secret recipe was Krusteaz pancake mix but they are still a very fond part of my childhood memories. I look forward to making these for my daughter.

I’ve never tried these without the pan. You could probably cook these as regular pancakes but the ball shape makes them what they are… they would taste the same no matter the shape… but just wouldn’t be, technically, Aebleskivers.

Not sure if I can/should ask a question here, but here goes…
Can these, yummy looking little thingies, be made without using this special pan? If I add one more kitchen item – I’ll have to add a lean-to!
Thanks much!

Interesting, my husband’s family always makes this with stiff egg whites. This one is easier–I wonder if it makes a difference?

I have had these in my youth, my Dad’s family is Danish). Someday I will have that aebleskiver pan so I too can make these wonderful treats!
