"ATW80DS" - Danish Aebleskivers

I grew up on these yummy little balls of sweet goodness, they are part of my Danish heritage. Speaking of heritage I am actually in the air as I post this, flying to St. Louis to see my oldest Son, wife and Sugar Bear (granddaughter). We sat on the runway for an hour this afternoon waiting for this to pass over us... It was exciting and scary all at the same time.

Aebleskivers Ingredients
2 cups flour
2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups buttermilk
3 large eggs, separated
6 cardamon seeds ground
powder sugar for dusting
maple syrup and/or peanut butter

In a large bowl, combine flour, salt and baking soda. In two bowls separate your egg whites and yolks. Add buttermilk and egg yolks to your flour mixture. Beat egg whites until light and fluffy forming soft peaks. Gently fold in egg whites into flour mixture.
Preheat an aebleskiver pan on medium heat. Grease each cup with vegetable oil. Fill each hole approximately 2/3 capacity with batter. Cook approximately 1-2 minutes on the first side. Flip using a wooden skewer and cook another 1-2 minutes on the second side. If filling aebleskiver, fill ½ way and cook 1-2 minutes on the first side. Fill the middle of each pancake with ½ t filling, top with another tablespoon of batter, flip and cook another 2 minutes until golden brown. Remove from pan, sprinkle with powered sugar and serve with Maple Syrup and peanut butter.
 Optional Fillings: Nutella, Chocolate chips, blueberries, raspberries, sautéed diced apples, applesauce, jellies or jams.
Yield 35-40 Aebelskivers
