"As a young girl, I constantly craved Saturdays and Sundays when my mother would prepare these small delicious pancakes. Now as a college student, I still look forward to Christmas time when our family is together and my mother and I prepare an overwhelming amount to feed family members! Definitely add in any kind of jam, peanut butter, honey, Nutella®, chocolate chips, fruit (diced apples, blueberries, etc.); the possibilities are endless and so delicious!"

  • Ready In

  1. Stir the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves together in a large bowl; mix in the egg, milk, butter, and vanilla until just combined.
  2. Heat an aebleskiver pan over medium heat; prepare with cooking spray.
  3. Pour the batter into each cup to about 2/3 full. Allow the batter to cook in the bottom of the cup 3 to 4 minutes until golden brown. Don't forget which cup you placed the batter in first, it's all about rotation! Use a long skewer or knitting needle to lift one edge and give it a 1/4 turn. The uncooked batter will spill over into the cup, and cook. Continue lifting and turning the edges until the batter is fully cooked into a golden brown ball. Drain on paper towels.

Footnotes

  • These are also great filled. Try with chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, jam, honey, Nutella(R), peanut butter, coconut, cranberries, raisins, blueberries, and pie fillings (not the most nutritious but definitely yummy.) Simply fill the cup about 1/3 full and place the filling in the center of the pooled batter.

As a teenager my friends would get together and have Aebleskivers made by one of the grand Mother of one of the kids. We loved them hot with butter in the middle of the round pancake. I'm exci...

this was wonderful. Our family adds fruit pie filling and whipped cream.

I remember these from my childhood in Germany where they were eaten around New Years. I agree with one of the other people that the whole wheat flour in this recipe makes it to heavy. I used ha...

In my experience aebleskivers taste almost like a crepe. These were dense and bready, more like spherical pancakes. Next time I'll add more egg and liquid to the batter. Might have to separate a...

They taste really great with the spices in them and love that it has the whole wheat flour. My whole family loves these with chocolate in them!
