Æbleskiver

ÆBLESKIVER

One traditional Danish Christmas treat is æbleskiver, which means ‘apple slices’ – although the modern recipe is apple-free. These delicious pancake balls are easy to make and best served with homemade jam, a dusting of powered sugar, and a cup of gløgg, which is Danish mulled wine.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons powdered cardamom
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 3 tablespoons oil
  • 1/2 vanilla bean pod - the seeds from it
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • Butter for the pan

Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl: flower, salt, sugar, vanilla seeds, cardamom, baking powder, baking soda, and lemon zest. Divide the yolks from the egg whites. Combine the yolk together with the buttermilk and oil and mix it into the dry ingredients afterwards. Whip the egg whites. Mix egg white mixture into the dough by starting with 2 tablespoons of the egg whites and then gently mixing in the rest. Heat your Æbleskiver-pan, which has round holes in it. If you don’t have one, make them as waffles - they taste just as good. Fill the holes with a bit of butter and then halfway with the dough. Turn the Æbleskiver with a small fork or knitting-needle 180 degrees (upside down) when they start to crisp up and turn golden. Continue turning until cooked all the way around. In the old days, some added small pieces of apples or raisins into the middle before turning, giving this little joy it’s name.
