Aebleskivers

I purchased an Aebleskiver Pan from a local Kitchen Store a year ago. I'd been using a pre packaged mix to make the Aebleskivers.
I recently found a cast iron Aebleskiver pan at an antique mall.
I realized that I wanted to use a batter from scratch.

They're a Danish type pancake cooked in the shape of a ball.
They're cooked on a stovetop.
Batter is poured into the well and traditionally included bits of Apple inside.

After pouring 1/2 of the batter in each well, you can add a small amount of jam and cover with remaining batter.

We have filled them with:
Nutella
a piece of Chocolate
Lemon Curd
Peanut Butter
You can customize them to your own taste

Here's the recipe:

2 Egg Whites
2 C Flour
2 tsp Baking Powder
1 TBS Sugar
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Salt
2 Egg Yolks
4 TBS Butter, melted
2 C Buttermilk
Vegetable Oil for the well of the pan

Beat Egg Whites with an electric mixer until they hold a peak, set aside

Mix:
Flour
Baking Powder
Salt
Baking Soda
Sugar
Egg Yolks
Butter
Buttermilk
Beat until smooth and then fold in the Meringue.

Put 1 TBS of Oil in each well
Pour in 2 TBS of Batter in each well
As soon as they bubble around the edge, flip them with a wooden skewer or a spoon
Keep turning until cooked well

Enjoy!
Peace in the Kitchen!
