A holiday in Denmark often begins with a breakfast of puffy little pancake pastries called aebleskiver (ebleskiver). Traditionally, they are made with an apple filling or served with applesauce (hence their name). Like other great pastries, wonderful variations have evolved. You'll love aebleskiver pancake puffs with jam fillings and cream cheese fillings.
If you can make pancakes, you can make aebleskiver with this pan.
- Simple recipe--like pancake batter with egg whites folded in.
- Fill with fruit or cream cheese--even meats--or serve plain.
- Turn in the pan with toothpicks, a fork, or skewers.
- Total cook time is only 2 1/2 minutes.
- Great for summertime cooking--pastries without the oven.
This little cast iron aebleskiver pan will last a lifetime.
- Heavy cast iron will not break, rust, or warp.
- 7-inch diameter pan.
- Cook seven aebleskiver at a time.
- Stovetop pastries in minutes--no need to heat the oven.
- This pan is smaller than our other aebleskiver pans, only seven inches across, but you can still make seven at a time and it works fine. This is a heavy, quality pan weighing just over three pounds.
- These filled pancakes are not too sweet. With most recipes there is little or no sugar in the batter. The filling and a dusting of powdered sugar adds enough sweetener.
- For soft fillings such as jams, whipped toppings, and marshmallow cream, you can use a decorating set or pastry bag. Just insert a star or tube tip and press.
- These aebleskiver can be made with pancake mixes. Instead of adding the egg called for in directions, fold in the beaten egg whites from three large eggs.
Aebleskiver are great little Danish pastries--pancake puffs--that you can make in a few minutes on your stovetop.
