My mom first introduced Aebleskivers to me when I was a teenager. Then when I got married I got to go on my husband’s family annual trip to the Oregon coast. One of the traditions that they is to stop by the Scandinavian Festival in Eugene. And guess what! They make Aebleskivers there! 

Then throughout the years my awesome Father-in-Law decided to start making Aebleskivers for breakfast one of the days that we are there. And they are AWESOME!

OK so what are Aebleskivers? (I’ve also seen them spelled as Ebelskivers)

Anyway they are basically pancake balls. The batter is very similar to pancakes, but you cook them differently.

You need an Aebleskiver pan.

This is the one I have.

 

Or here are a few more that I’m sure would work just as well. 

 

 

So let me get to the recipe and then I’ll tell you my couple tips and tricks on cooking them.

Ingredients
  1. 2 cups flour
  2. 2 eggs, seperated
  3. 2 Tablespoons sugar
  4. 2 cups milk
  5. 1/2 tsp salt
  6. 2 teaspoons baking powder
  7. 1/4 cup melted butter
Batter
  1. Mix flour, egg yolks, sugar, and milk in a bowl with wire whip. Then mix in salt, baking powder, and melted butter. In a separate bowl whip egg whites until stiff, then fold egg whites into the rest of the batter.
Cook
  1. Grease up an aebleskivers pan and turn to low-medium heat. Pour batter into each cup in an aebleskivers pan, about 3/4 full. Wait a couple minutes until the batter starts to rise. Then with a skewer insert it into one of the aebleskivers cups, and scrape it across the bottom making one of the aebleskivers balls turn. Turn about 2/3 of the way around, and then let cook again. Once it has cooked a little more finish turning the full way around to make a ball.
Notes
  1. You can also put little bits of fruit, sausage, or bacon inside each aebleskiver once they have been turned slightly, placing it right into the batter. YUM YUM!

In the third picture you can see that we overfilled the cups in the pan, the good thing though is they still tasted good!

Another tip to give you is to take your time and don’t get mad- haha I get frustrated easily can’t you tell?

And if they totally turn out to be a flop the first time, try them again when you want aebleskivers, each time I get better and I eve surprise myself by how many perfectly round balls I can get.

Then I dusted with a little bit of powdered sugar. And then I eat a couple, or 3, or several. So good!aeblskivers

    Aren’t these just the best thing since sliced bread (much better than sliced bread really)?! I just made them for the 1st time the other day and I’m in love! tried a few different fillings, but lemon curd was my favorite. Mmm, mmm, good ;)
