My husband Jim grew up with authentic Danish food. He loved going over to his Danish Grandma's house and enjoying her delicious Aebleskiver, which are like pancake balls. He remembers her making them as fast as he and his siblings could eat them!
I also have fond memories of Aebleskiver from childhood trips to Solvang, a cute little Danish town in California. We would watch mesmerized through a restaurant window as the cook flipped the aebleskivers expertly, producing a seemingly endless bounty for his hungry and eager customers.
So a year or two ago, I was thrilled when Jim made an SCD version - and it did not disappoint!
He recently made these mouthwatering treats again, and revised the recipe - making them even better. I wanted to share it with you so you can enjoy them too! They make a great breakfast food on special occasions, or any time for that matter!
So here is the new revised recipe:
First, beat 6 egg whites until fluffy in a large bowl. (We have a Kitchen Aid mixer, which works wonderfully for this.)
Then, combine in a blender:
6 egg yolks
1/4 cup SCD yogurt
1 Tablespoon vanilla (vanilla, alcohol, & water only)
2 Tablespoons butter, softened
2 Tablespoons honey
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1+ cup of almond flour
After mixing the above ingredients in the blender, add a little more almond flour as needed to make the batter as thick as regular pancake batter.
Next, gently pour and fold blender mixture into egg whites, until combined.
To Cook Aebleskivers:
Using an aebleskiver (or pancake ball) pan, place 1/2 teaspoon coconut oil or shortening into each pancake hole. Heat to medium low. (These aebleskivers take longer to cook than Grandma Alma's because the honey and eggs in the recipe cause them to burn more easily.)
Pour about 1 Tablespoon of batter into each hole. Cook a bit until the cooking edge is firm enough that you can turn the aebleskiver about 1/2 turn using a skewer. Pull the aebleskivers up and over so the other side can cook, creating a round ball. Use the skewer to turn pancakes around a bit, making sure all sides are cooked to a nice golden brown. Remove with skewer. Add more oil and repeat. (Makes around 21 aebleskivers.)
Aebleskivers are delicious with honey or homemade jam. To make jam, microwave fresh or frozen berries in a small dish for three minutes, or cook down in a small pan. Mash berries with a fork and blend with honey to taste. Add Knox gelatin if desired for a thicker consistency. Chill to thicken or serve immediately with aebleskivers.
P.S. Here is a link to a quality aebleskiver pan. I love cast iron, and this is the kind we use.
