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 CUP FLOUR
- 4 TO 5 TBSP SUGAR
- 3/4TH TSP BAKING POWDER
- 1 CUP + 3 TO 4 TSP BUTTERMILK
- 1 EGG
- 1 1/2 TSP VANILLA ESSENCE
- 1/2 AN APPLE CHOPPED
- 1/4 TSP CINNAMON POWDER
- 1 TBSP+ MORE BUTTER
IN A BOWL BEAT THE EGG WHITE AND SUGAR, UNTIL NICE AND FLUFFY. ADD THE ESSENCE, YOLK AND BUTTER MILK.
ADD THIS MIXTURE TO THE FLOUR AND BAKING POWDER MIXTURE. ADD A LITTLE BUTTERMILK IN CASE YOU ARE NOT GETTING A GOOD CONSISTENCEY. LET IT SET FOR 10 MIN OR MORE.
IN A NON STICK PAN ADD 1 TBSP BUTTER, THE APPLE PIECES, 2 TSP SUGAR AND CINNAMON POWDER. ROAST WELL FOR 3 TO 4 MINUTES.
ADD HALF A TSP OF BUTTER IN EACH COMPARTMENT OF THE PAN. ONCE IT STARTS BUBBLING, ADD BATTER TO 3/4TH OF EACH COMPARTMENT OF THE ABLESKIVER PAN. ADD SOME FILLING IN EACH. ADD MORE BATTER OVER IT.
COOK COVER FOR 4 MINUTES ON SIMMER. THEN INCREASE TO MEDIUM FLAME AND COOK THE OTHER SIDE UNTIL GOLDEN BROWN. CHECK IF IT’S COOKED BY PIERCING A TOOTHPICK INTO IT. IN CASE THE OTHER SIDE ISN’T GETTING COOKED PROPERLY THEN COOK COVERED FOR A MIN OR SO!
