Hello! Alicia here, back with another recipe from my heritage. This month we are doing Denmark. On my mother's side we are Danish! We have ancestors that moved to America from Denmark in the early 18th century. Some of them fought in the Revolutionary War. (So excuse me while I go join the D.A.R. like a Gilmore Girl). I'm excited to delve into Denmark's cuisine and culture this month and learn more about my ancestors through food.
Today I'm sharing a recipe that would be a delicious breakfast but is also commonly eaten at tea time or as a snack; Æbleskiver.
Æbleskiver are essentially puffy pancake balls, and they are so delicious. When I asked my friends on Facebook what Danish dishes they liked this was the only response I got back (besides a danish). My friend Katie graciously shared her recipe for them with me.
To make them you will need a special æbleskiver pan. I ordered a cast iron pan on Amazon, it came preseasoned and ready to cook with! It worked so well! You will also want some wooden skewers or toothpicks to turn the æbleskiver over. I know it sounds strange, but it's really the easiest way.
You can also put filling in them! I used strawberries, bacon, dulce de leche, and chocolate chips. All the fillings were good, but the strawberry was my favorite. To put the filling in, I poured my batter into the pan and then just pushed the filling in until it was covered with batter. That was easiest for me but you could also do it where you put a little batter, then filling, then more batter. Find a way that works for you. Top them with powdered sugar and buttermilk syrup and you've got a perfect treat!
Katie also shared a recipe for Buttermilk Syrup that goes deliciously well with æbleskiver. I didn't make it the same day because I was out of buttermilk and Karo syrup. But I have made it before and let me tell you IT IS SO GOOD! So definitely give it a go.
I hope you get to make these! I think they'd be a great addition for a Mother's Day brunch or even to surprise mom with breakfast in bed! If you do make these be sure to let us know and share a picture with us on social media.
