Adding A Little Danish Tradition

Ages ago we attended the
Oktoberfest in Mt. Angel, Oregon
and ate aebelskivers for the first time.
In just 4 days the festival begins again and I think it would be so fun to be there
...not happening for me though.
Several times I have seen the aebelskiver pans at thrift stores but just passed them by. . . until this week. With my trusty 20% off coupon I brought one home at the cost of $4.00. I looked it up online and saw that mine was a NordicWare and sold through Williams Sonoma.

I've been doing some studying online and think I'll be making a "batch" soon.
It sure seems simple enough.



NordicWare Ebelskiver Pan (here's a link)
and here's a tutorial. No excuse for failure.


Ebleskiver or Aebleskiver Recipe

Ingredients

  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 cups buttermilk (or soured milk)
  • 1 cup vegetable oil for frying (I think I'm using a bit-o- butter instead)

  • Directions (these are a bit different from the video)
  1. In a clean glass or metal bowl, beat the egg whites with an electric mixer until they can hold a stiff peak. Set aside.
  2. Mix together the flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda, sugar, egg yolks, melted butter and buttermilk at one time and beat until smooth. Gently fold in the egg whites last.
  3. Put melted butter in the bottom of each aebleskiver pan cup and heat until hot. Pour in about 2 tablespoons of the batter into each cup. As soon as they get bubbly around the edge, turn them quickly (Danish cooks use a long knitting needle, but a fork will work). Continue cooking, turning the ball to keep it from burning.
Do you have any aebelskiver stories or experiences? I'd love if you'd share. My research tells that these were eaten in Danish homes on Christmas morning and New Years eve and day. May be adding a new tradition in my home since I have such a strong Danish heritage.

Wishing you a "god dag" . . . good day in Danish.
