Aebleskivers are a delightful, Danish confection that marries the texture of a pancake with the airiness of a popover. Typically aebleskivers are filled with apples or other delights, but many recipes in the United States are simply puffs of sweet dough. If you serve these with powdered sugar or drizzled with chocolate sauce for breakfast on Valentine’s Day, you are sure to surprise and delight your sweetie. Aebleskivers require a special pan which may be hard to come by locally. Amazon, Target and other online retailers sell these, though, so you can probably get one by Valentine’s Day if you desire. This recipe uses our Buttermilk Pancake Mix, but you can make these from scratch, as well.
- 2 large Eggs, separated
- 2 Tbsp melted Butter
- 1 cup Water
- 1-1/2 cups Buttermilk Pancake Mix
- 2-4 Tbsp Powdered Sugar (for garnish)
In a medium bowl beat egg yolks until pale. Stir in buttermilk pancake and waffle mix, water and butter until blended.
In a medium bowl, beat egg whites until stiff, but not dry. Fold into egg mixture. Generously butter each aebleskiver cup. Heat aebleskiver pan according to manufacturer’s instructions.
Fill each cup 3/4 full with batter, cook until bubbly and set around edges, about 1-1/2 minutes. Turn 1/4 turn with a fork or wooden pick to brown other side. Continue 1/4 turns each 15 to 30 seconds until lightly browned on all sides and a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.
Dust with powdered sugar for garnish. Serve warm.
Makes about 20 aebleskivers.
