Æbleskiver – Danish Pancake Balls

It is our family tradition to have Æbleskiver for holiday morning breakfasts. The kids love them and we always serve with homemade jam. You will need an Æbleskiver pan. Tradition started with my step-father, who was born and raised in Denmark, home of the Æbleskiver.

2 cup flourAebleskiver
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 cup buttermilk
1 Tbs. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
2 eggs

1. In a small bowl add dry ingredients and whisk together. In a large bowl beat eggs and sugar well. Sift the dry ingredients into the large bowl of eggs and sugar. Add buttermilk and beat until batter is smooth.

2. Heat Æbleskiver pan over medium heat and melt 1 tsp of butter in each hole. Fill hole with batter and let fry, turning ball with a skewer to fry on all sides.
