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.


Aebleskiver (Danish Pancakes) image

As a young girl, I constantly craved Saturdays and Sundays when my mother would prepare these small delicious pancakes. Now as a college student, I still look forward to Christmas time when our family is together and my mother and I prepare an overwhelming amount to feed family members! Definitely add in any kind of jam, peanut butter, honey, Nutella®, chocolate chips, fruit (diced apples, blueberries, etc.); the possibilities are endless and so delicious!

  • 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.

Categories     Breakfast

Time 17m

Yield 30 Aebelskivers, 10 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 11

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
2 egg yolks
2 egg whites
3 tablespoons cooking oil
jam, jelly, honey, syrup (optional) or applesauce (optional)
sifted powdered sugar (optional)
cinnamon sugar (optional)


  • In a mixing bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. In another mixing bowl stir together milk and egg yolks until well combined. Add to flour mixture. Stir until smooth.
  • In a small bowl beat egg whites with an electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form (tips stand straight). Gently fold beaten egg whites into batter, leaving a few puffs of egg white. Do not overbeat.
  • Place an aebleskiver pan over medium heat; lightly brush each cup with oil. When the oil sizzles, use about 2 tablespoons of the batter to fill each cup 2/3 full. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes. As a thin shell forms, use a fork or wooden toothpick to gently invert the cooked portion and allow the uncooked portion to flow into the cup. Invert each aebleskiver and cook until all shells are set and all sides are sealed. Continue rotating and cooking until they are evenly golden brown and a wooden toothpick inserted in their centers comes out clean.
  • If you choose to add jam to the center just add a small amount of jam to the middle of batter right after you put the batter in the pan. Use toothpick or spoon to push batter over top of jam. If you choose to add a filling make sure not to fill the cups to full of batter(1/2 - 2/3 full). Then continue to cook and flip as the directions say.
  • Note: If you are having sticking uses with the pan you may need to crank up to heat, add more oil, or both.
  • Use a fork or wooden toothpick to transfer each aebleskiver to a plate. Serve immediately or keep warm in a loosely covered ovenproof dish in a 300 degree F oven. If desired, serve with jam, jelly, honey, syrup, or applesauce and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Makes 30 aebleskiver.


Aebleskiver image

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

  • In a medium sized bowl mix dry ingredients: flour (2 cups), sugar (2 tablespoons), baking powder (1 teaspoon), baking soda (1/2 teaspoon), salt (1/2 teaspoon), and cardamom if using (1/2 teaspoon). In a separate large bowl whisk buttermilk (2 cups), eggs (2) and vanilla (1 teaspoon). Whisk dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. For fluffiest results, use batter within 10 minutes of mixing.
  • Heat up your cast iron Aebleskiver pan over medium-high heat for a couple of minutes. Place 1/4 teaspoon or so of butter or oil into each round. When it bubbles, add enough batter to come up almost to the top of the round. (If using a filling, spoon 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of filling into the center of each round and cover with a bit of batter) When the batter starts to bubble up a bit on the sides, turn the aebleskiver 1/4 of the way around by gently coaxing it with the tip of your needle. It should slide easily. Cook for 20-30 seconds, adjusting the heat if need be, so they don’t burn, and make another quarter turn for each aebleskiver. Repeat the turns two more times, until you have a perfect ball that is cooked on all sides. You can test your aebleskivers for doneness by inserting a toothpick – if it comes out clean, they’re done. If not, continue to cook, rotating every few seconds, until done.
  • Arrange aeblesivers on a platter. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serve warm with jam or other toppings on the side. Enjoy!

As soon as they get bubbly around the edge, flip them over (In Denmark they typically use a knitting needle to flip, but you can use a chopstick or a fork). Continue cooking, turning the ball until is is golden brown all the way around and is cooked through (like a pancake). It might take a couple tries to get the feel for it, but once you do you will be flippin' aebleskiver like it's nobody's business!

  • 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.
