Aebleskivers

Happy Friday everybody!  I have another Danish recipe for you this week.  This recipe is a little more technical than past recipes I have done and does require specific equipment.  But, these aebleskivers are delicious and worth the work.  Here is how to make them:

You will need: aebleskiver pan, flour, salt, baking soda, sugar, vanilla, buttermilk, butter (melted), and eggs.

First, separate the egg whites and yolks.  
IMG_1565Then add the sugar to the egg whites and whip them until stiff.  IMG_1566 IMG_1569Combine the rest of the dry ingredients, egg yolks, and vanilla.  IMG_1567
Slowly add the buttermilk while beating with a hand mixer.  Keep mixing until it is evenly mixed.  IMG_1568Then add the melted butter and mix until combined.  IMG_1570Slowly and carefully add the egg white to the buttermilk mixture.  Use a wooden spoon to do this.  If you mix it too much, the air bubbles from the egg whites will collapse.  IMG_1571 IMG_1572Heat the aebleskiver pan over medium heat.  A piece of butter should be placed in the bottom of each hole. IMG_1573 Fill each section 3/4 full. Cook until the edges are firm.  IMG_1574Then turn the aebleskiver 90 degrees.  This is when you could put your filling in if you decide to.  Fill the hole that forms with a little more batter and turn another 90 degrees.  IMG_1575Continue turning until completely cooked.  Enjoy!IMG_1576
