Recipe from Better Homes and Gardens
Aebleskiver, round pancakes that resemble popovers, are baked on the stovetop in a special pan that has indented cups. Look for the pan in kitchen shops and specialty stores and catalogs. When making them, keep in mind that practice makes perfect.
Yield: 30 aebleskiver
Prep Time: 15 mins
1 cupall-purpose flour
1 tablespoongranulated sugar
2 teaspoonsbaking powder
Cooking oil (about 3 tablespoons)
Jam, jelly, honey, syrup, or applesauce (optional)
Sifted powdered sugar (optional)
In a small bowl beat egg whites with an electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form (tips stand straight). Gently fold beaten egg whites into batter, leaving a few puffs of egg white. Do not overbeat.
Place an aebleskiver pan over medium heat; lightly brush each cup with oil. When the oil sizzles, use about 2 tablespoons of the batter to fill each cup 2/3 full. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes. As a thin shell forms, use a fork or wooden toothpick to gently invert the cooked portion and allow the uncooked portion to flow into the cup. Invert each aebleskiver and cook until all shells are set and all sides are sealed. Continue rotating and cooking until they are evenly golden brown and a wooden toothpick inserted in their centers comes out clean.
Use a fork or wooden toothpick to transfer each aebleskiver to a plate. Serve immediately or keep warm in a loosely covered ovenproof dish in a 300 degree F oven. If desired, serve with jam, jelly, honey, syrup, or applesauce and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Makes 30 aebleskiver.
