This recipe comes from my sweet Great Grandmother. Her family came from Denmark, this is a family favorite that she passed down to her children and great grandchildren (now it is being passed to her great great grandchildren). Aebleskiver, in denmark refers to apples (aebles, I think) because originally they had apple slices in them, my Great Grandmother used to sometimes put applesauce in the middle. We usually do not do the apple slices in them now, but you could! An Aebleskivers is essentially a tennis ball shaped pancake/waffle delicacy that can be eaten for any meal.... or in between... their is really no bad time to eat an Aebleskiver!
2 egg whites
2 cups flour
1 Tablespoon white sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 Tablespoons butter melted
2 cups buttermilk
Shortening for Aebleskiver pan
Start by heating up your Aebleskiver pan, it will work best on a gas range stovetop, glass top stovetops, will not will work with a cast iron pan.
Enjoy! Aebleskivers are delicious, traditional, and fun! Sometimes recipes are more than just food, they are thousands of memories whipped up into one delicious bites, this is one for me. I hope that someday my great great grandchildren will enjoy this recipe too!
