  1. Sift the flour, salt, and baking soda together in a bowl. Add the buttermilk and egg yolks; stir until you have a batter.
  2. In a separate large glass or metal mixing bowl, beat the egg whites until foamy until soft peaks form. Lift your beater or whisk straight up: the egg whites will form soft mounds rather than a sharp peak. Fold the egg whites into the prepared batter.
  3. Place an aebleskiver pan over medium heat; prepare each cup with cooking spray. Pour the batter into each cup to about 2/3 full. Cook until golden brown on each side, using a toothpick to flip, 1 to 2 minutes per side.

These were delicious. Really cute, lovely texture, with a homey pancake flavor. Loved mine with fruit jam or syrup.

I had my doubts because this recipe just seemed too simple, but these turned out great! I didn't have buttermilk, so I used 1% milk and it worked well. I filled the cups full and they were muc...

if you eat them without jam, jelly, or some type of syrup to sweeten them, they are bland & boring. Maybe I will try to use the pan with a better pancake recipe. The dogs enjoyed them greatly.

Made these for breakfast today and they were great! My first time eating aebleskiver, but they turned out very well. I followed the recipe exactly except found you got the nicest, roundest aeb...
