Make it: Danish Aebleskivers / by Katie Brightbill

I've mentioned before that I'm ethnically half Mexican and half Scandinavian. The Scandinavians hands-down win for most amazing dessert makers. They have so many recipes for sweets and treats and culturally drink coffee all day for taste rather than caffeine. I grew up eating (aka overdosing on) Swedish pancakes, Norwegian heart-waffles, and my personal favorite: Danish aebleskivers.

SO... you want a recipe? Okay, here goes:

Danish Aeblaskivers: 
3 eggs, separated
2 Tbsp. sugar
1.5 C flour
1 C milk
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 C melted butter

1. Separate egg whites from yellows. Keep yolks in one bowl, beat whites until they're fluffy.
2. To the yolks, add flour, sugar, milk, salt, and baking powder, and then melted butter.
3. Wisk until blended.
4. Fold the egg whites into the yolk mixture.

Now you need an aebleskiver pan. It's worth the $20 or so to get one because they last forever!

5. Grease your pan.
6. Fill the cups to the top with dough.
7. Like pancakes, they need to be flipped when one side is done. Use a wooden chopstick or fork to carefully flip them. Cook on the other side and remove from the pan.

Add your favorite jam and powdered sugar and enjoy!


ps. Much thanks to my mom for her recipe and lesson.
