Aebleskivers-The Pancake Challenge!

As everyone knows I have been super busy for the past few weeks…Hence I couldn’t post this recipe earlier:(. And the worst part is, I also wanted to make raggmunks, but couldn’t find any time:(. SO anyways I am taking this to the Pancake Challenge, over at Natascha’s Palace.

SO coming over to the aebleskivers!These were one of the best pancakes I have ever had. In India, we make these delicacies called panniyarams, and their moulds exactly resemble the aebleskiver mould. Unfortunately I had the bigger ones, so I couldn’t get an exact spherical shape. in the pics the side look charred, idk why! Probably because of the effect.

Traditional aebleskivers have apple stuffing in them, so I followed it. These days we get aebleskivers with chocolate filling and other stuff. The word apparently means apple slices in Danish. You can make these with wheatflour or maida. I used maida, but next time I’m gonna try it with wheat:)

Serve this by sprinkling powdered sugar over it. You can eat this with jam or chocolate sauce.

  1. Wow.. I simply love aebleskivers. I had these for the first time when I came to Denmark – it is such a christmassy thing here. πŸ™‚ traditionally they stuff it with prunes. I prefer them plain with some powdered sugar and marmalade. πŸ™‚ Kudos to the effort Lina.

  2. These look delicious Lina! I love the special pan and the cute shapes–they really stand out amongst all the pancakes as most of pancakes tend to be flat! The apple filling sounds delicious, as does chocolate. They look a lot like takoyaki!
