What's For Dinner (or Maybe Brunch?): Aebelskivers!

Aebelskivers are Danish puffed pancakes, traditionally made with an apple filling.  Though apple is traditional, any flavor of fruit is delicious, and cream fillings make these into tasty warm cream puffs!  They look difficult to make, but if you have an aebelskiver pan, they are really a breeze to prepare.


  • 1 1/2 cup Flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 beaten eggs
  • 2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 stick unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup Powdered sugar
  • 1 1/2 cup Raspberry Jam

  1. Melt butter in microwave safe bowl or cup (About 30 sec.).
  2. Sift dry ingredients, add buttermilk and beaten eggs. Beat with a whisk until batter is smooth.
  3. Heat Aebelskiver pan on medium heat, quickly add to each pan hole - 1/2 tsp. butter and batter, filling each hole a little over half full of batter.  And a teaspoon of jam to each Aebelskiver.
  4. When the batter is bubbling in the center, the pancake is probably ready to turn. Gently lift a side of the pancake with a little fork (I use toothpicks for this) and check to see if is golden. If it is firm on the sides and a nice golden color, flip it carefully to make sure it is completely inverted, so the golden cooked side is now completely on top and has no "seams" or holes in the sides. When you flip the pancake, the uncooked batter in the middle will spill into the hole and cook. If the cooked sides are sticking out, you can tuck them in with a fork. The pancake should be firm enough to invert without falling apart or collapsing. Let the other side cook for a few minutes, check for golden color and remove.
  5. Repeat with butter and batter, until batter is finished. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve!

If you'd rather make this from a mix, Prepared Pantry has several very good mixes - traditional flavor, chocolate and jalapeno corn!

These are fabulous and quite easy to make - definitely worth buying an aebelskiver pan and frying up a batch!
