Aebleskiver (Danish Pancake Balls) image

Based on a recipe from Sunset's Breakfast & Brunches cookbook. You will need an ebelskiver (aebleskiver or aebelskiver) pan to make this; we purchased our NordicWare one at L.L. Bean's in Freeport, Maine. "The tender ball-shaped pancakes the Danish call "aebleskiver" derive their roundness from the iron in which they're cooked.... To make perfectly round aebleskiver, you must frequently lift and turn the baked section of each ball. They will eventually seal themselves, creating a hollow in each center. Serve with your favorite jam or preserves." When we make these, we experiment by placing the jam, preserves, or chocolate inside the aebleskivers!

Time 30m

Yield 12-15 pancake balls

Number Of Ingredients 10

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom or 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 egg, beaten
1 cup milk
3 tablespoons butter or 3 tablespoons margarine, divided, melted and cooled
powdered sugar
fruit jam or preserves


  • Sift flour with salt, baking powder, granulated sugar, and cardamom in medium-size bowl. Combine egg, milk, and 2 tablespoons of butter in small bowl. Add wet mixture to dry combination and stir until blended and smooth.
  • Note: If your ebelskiver pan is new and isn't Teflon coated, season it by preheating it to medium-hot - until water dripped onto the surface sizzles. Brush entire cooking surface generously with salad oil. Continue to heat just until oil smokes, then remove from heat and let cool completely. Wipe clean and your ebelskiver is ready for use. If your old ebelskiver seems to stick, wash its cooking surface in soapy water. Then season as directed above.
  • Place a seasoned aebleskiver pan over medium heat until water sprinkled in pan sizzles. Brush each cup lightly with some of the remaining butter. Fill each cup approximately 2/3 full with batter. About 30 seconds later, a thin shell forms on the bottom of each pancake ball. Coerce unbaked batter to flow out by sticking a slender wooden or metal skewer into baked portion and gently pulling shell almost halfway up.
  • Continue to rotate each pancake ball about every 30 seconds as the shell begins to set, pulling up the baked shell to let remaining batter flow out into cup. After about four turns, the ball should be almost formed and you can turn it upside down to seal.
  • Continue baking, rotating the balls frequently until they are an even golden brown and a skewer inserted in center comes out clean. Using skewer, lift balls from pan when baked. Repeat with remaining batter.
  • Serve immediately, or keep warm for as long as 30 minutes in a bun warmer or cloth-lined basket on an electric warming tray. Dust with powdered sugar. Break each ball in half, fill with jam, and eat out-of-hand.

Time 30m

Yield 30

Number Of Ingredients 10

2 egg whites
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 tablespoon white sugar
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
2 egg yolks
4 tablespoons butter, melted
2 cups buttermilk
1 cup vegetable oil for frying


  • In a clean glass or metal bowl, beat the egg whites with an electric mixer until they can hold a stiff peak. Set aside.
  • Mix together the flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda, sugar, egg yolks, melted butter and buttermilk at one time and beat until smooth. Gently fold in the egg whites last.
  • Put about 1tablespoon of vegetable oil in the bottom of each aebleskiver pan cup and heat until hot. Pour in about 2 tablespoons of the batter into each cup. As soon as they get bubbly around the edge, turn them quickly (Danish cooks use a long knitting needle, but a fork will work). Continue cooking, turning the ball to keep it from burning.

Number Of Ingredients 11

1 cup whole wheat flour
2 tablespoons white sugar
2 ½ teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 dash ground nutmeg
1 dash ground cloves
1 egg, lightly beaten
¾ cup milk
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Stir the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves together in a large bowl; mix in the egg, milk, butter, and vanilla until just combined.
  • Heat an aebleskiver pan over medium heat; prepare with cooking spray.
  • Pour the batter into each cup to about 2/3 full. Allow the batter to cook in the bottom of the cup 3 to 4 minutes until golden brown. Don't forget which cup you placed the batter in first, it's all about rotation! Use a long skewer or knitting needle to lift one edge and give it a 1/4 turn. The uncooked batter will spill over into the cup, and cook. Continue lifting and turning the edges until the batter is fully cooked into a golden brown ball. Drain on paper towels.

Years ago, a friend returned from visiting her family in Denmark and brought back her family recipe for aebleskiver. After hearing her rave about these tasty Danish pancake balls sold in bakeries and at street markets there, I ordered an aebleskiver pan. I've been making them ever since. -Kristine Chayes, Smithtown, New York

Aebleskiver (Round, Filled Danish Pancakes) image

This Danish delicacy is served in many Danish-American homes, including mine. A special pan is needed; even though new pans are available, many cooks favor the old cast-iron pans, which are handed down from generation to generation. You can get them at many scandanavian specialty stores, and can also order them online. In Denmark, aebleskiver is served as a dessert with sugar or marmelade. On the island of Aero, a small sliver of prune is put in the middle as they are cooked. There are many different recipes, and this one is my family's favorite. We put a little jam, preferably lingonberry preserves, in the middle of our aebleskivers as they are cooking, before turning them, and we eat them with sweetened cinamon-sugar applesauce. You will need a little practice in turning these doughnut-like treats. A fork works, but some practiced "turners" use a knitting needle, preferably wooden, or a similar device such as an ice pick. Even a toothpick will do.

  • Put all the ingredients for the dough - EXCEPT THE EGG WHITES - in a blender, and blend until the dough has an even consistency. Refrigerate the dough for 30 minutes.
  • Then beat the egg whites until forming stiff peaks and fold them carefully into the dough without beating too much air out of them.
  • Heat an aebleskive pan on the stove. It should be on medium heat, and be well warmed up before you start baking.
  • First, melt a little butter in each hole and then fill the holes with dough. Once you have dough in all the holes, turn the apple slices over. Turn them first a quarter turn, and when you have reached all the way around, turn them the last quarter turn so that they close and become completely round. If you have not filled enough dough in, you can refill them a little before turning the last quarter turn, but it should not be necessary. This is also where you can get a few apple cubes inside the aebleskiver if you like.

  • In a bowl, mix flour with sugar, baking powder, cardamom, and salt. In a small bowl, beat egg to blend with milk and 2 tablespoons butter. Add liquids to dry ingredients and stir until evenly moistened.
  • 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.
  • 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. Check by piercing center of last pancake ball added to pan with skewer--it should come out clean--or by breaking the ball open slightly; if balls start to get too brown, turn heat to low until they are cooked in the center. Lift cooked balls from pan and serve hot (see notes). Repeat to cook remaining batter.

  • Depending on what you want to serve these pancake balls with, you can prepare them now. I decided to use some heated blueberries, just placing them in the pancake pan wells to heat, gently brush with a little oil, and within a minute or two, the blueberries will be warmed, sizzling, and a little saucy (no sugar required).
  • Store: store any leftover blueberry oat pancakes in an airtight container in the refrigerator for between 3-4 days.Freeze: allow the pancake balls to cool entirely before transferring to a freezer-safe container and freezing for up to 1 month. Thaw before reheating.To reheat: pop the pancake balls in the oven at 350ºF/175ºC for a few minutes to heat through. You could also microwave them.
