Aebleskiver

This is a recipe and method I posted on Mennonite Girls Can Cook a while back and I wanted to have the post here on my personal blog, too. Just recently, on the Great British Baking Show these were a technical challenge for the bakers.

We first enjoyed these novel pancake balls when we visited the picturesque Danish village of Solvang, California. My husband bought his own pan to make them at home before we were married. We still have that pan.

The next time we make them we will experiment with our own flour mix instead of using Bisquick but for now here is the Bisquick recipe. We are also going to try putting in an apple filling which is a little trickier next time, too.

Ingredients:

  • 5 eggs, separated
  • 2 cups Bisquick baking mix
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • Butter
  • Confectioners Sugar (Icing Sugar)
  • Applesauce
  • Fruit Syrup or Maple Syrup (optional)
  1. Separate your eggs.
  2. Beat egg whites in large bowl on high speed until stiff; set aside.
  3. Blend egg yolks, baking mix and milk in mixing bowl on low speed. Fold egg yolk mixture into beaten egg whites.
  4. Butter each cup in Aebleskiver pan. Heat pan over medium heat.
  5. Fill cups 2/3 full with batter.
  6. Cook until bubbly; turn carefully with small spatula or fork.  Cook other side until golden brown.
  7. While warm, sprinkle with sugar.
  8. Serve with applesauce and syrup if you desire.

Notes: You can try turning them with a chopstick or wooden skewer if the fork or spatula don’t work for you.  Next time we thought it would be nice to add a little vanilla and or sugar to the batter.
