Aebleskiver (pronounced EB-el-sku-wyr) is best likened to a spherical pancake with a little delight inside – apple slice, jam, Nutella…let your foodie imagination run.
This morning I pulled out my Aunt Else’s Aebleskiver cast-iron pan and made us a breakfast treat. Learning how to make aebleskiver takes a little patience. My first attempt wasn’t too slick – there’s a certain technique using a skewer (you can also use a knitting needle) to turn the batter so it cooks on all sides. Watch this great video to learn how hone your aeble – skills!
I like making aebleskiver at home because you can control the quality of the ingredients and the amount of fat (oil) in the pan. Such a fun breakfast or brunch treat! Take a look at this homemade recipe for Aebleskiver batter: Danish Pancake Balls (Aebleskiver) from MyRecipes.com My kids prefer aebleskiver without the apple inside – just plain with powdered sugar or with maple syrup.
Several months ago, I won this unique pan by participating in a fun and informative phone conference by Kitchen Wizard Mari on how to cook this Danish treat. Aunt Else’s Aebleskiver didn’t ask me to write this post. It’s purely my opinion and I really like their product.
