Danish Oven Pancake (Aeggekage)

WOLSELEY 10

"An Aeggekage is a traditional Danish oven pancake, usually served as a buffet item or as a dessert for a family holiday meal. It is a light, cake-like dish that is not too sweet and absolutely delicious with fresh seasonal berries and fresh whipped cream! (Think of it as a sweetened Yorkshire pudding). Just make sure you serve immediately, this pancake does not do well cold nor is it a good leftover. But chances are you won't have any remaining Aeggekage to worry about!"

In denmark we also make this as a savory dish... made in a pan or oven, without the sugar and fruit ofc. but served with fried bacon and cut shives on top and ryebread to eat with it

Tried this recipe, it came out of the oven looking great but my family and friends did not like the salty taste, guess we are just used to having pancakes made with more of the sugar than salt.

Decrease the temperature! This is a great recipe--when baked at 425. At 500, this just browns or blackens before cooking in the middle. I love these, but if I rated this recipe based on the p...

Fabulous but one hint. This really rises in the oven so put it on a low rack to cook. Also great w/ carmelized apples.

I made this on a weekend up at Lake Vermillion, MN with friends. Since it was not my own recipe or my own kitchen and we were with new friends I prayed this wouldn't fail. I followed the recip...

Fantastic! This is so great. I have spent years trying to find a recipes this good. It brings back so many childhood memories and I will make this time and time again.

This recipe is just ok. Not the recipe I was looking for. The one I used in the past but lost, allowed the sides of the puff to rise quite high and this one did not. This rose slightly but w...

So pleased to find this! A childhood favorite of mine....the shape is the best part!
