WOLSELEY

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

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 product I got without decreasing the temperature, I would give it two stars. If you plan to follow the recipe exactly, take my advice and start watching for burning long before you are supposed to take it out of the oven.

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