2 c. Buttermilk 2 c. Flour 2 Eggs 2 tsp. Baking Powder 1/2 tsp. Salt 1/2 tsp. Baking Soda 2 tbsp. Sugar 4 tbsp. Melter Butter Crisco or other solid shortening for frying
This requires a special pan, called an Aebleskiver (pronounced Able Skeever) pan or a Monk's Pan. Can be found in cooking store.
Seperate the eggs, beat the whites till stiff and set aside. Mix all of the other ingredients, incl. the egg yolks, and beat until smooth. Allow batter to set for 30 min. Fold in the egg whites. Put about 1/2 tbsp. of shortening in each cup of the pan and heat. Pour in about 2 tbsp. of the batter in each cup and as soon as they get bubbly around the edges begin turning them - a cake tester works great for this, or a fork. Turn them a bit at a time, letting them re-set with each turn so they form a nice ball. Contin. cooking until the cake tester comes out clean when poked through the center. Serve hot with maple syrup, Rasp. jam or powdered sugar.
About 5 or 6
An hour, incl. the time to let set
This is definately worth the time it takes to make, and the purchase of the pan. They are delicious and the kids LOVE them.
We make this on Christmas morning after opening presents as a way to celebrate our family's Danish heritage. (Andy's side of the family). Yum, Yum, Yum!!
