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!

Directions

  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.
  4. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

I love aebleskivers, but the whole wheat flour in this recipe makes them super dense ( not a good thing). They were solid balls of dough, not the fluffy, donut-like consistency I associate with aebskivers. Using whole wheat flour sounds like a great idea because it will make it healthy, but I don't think it's worth it... These have lots of butter and sugar in them anyways, so they're not going to be a health food... Perhaps a Better, and much tastier option, is being sure to serve them with lots of fruit on the side. I don't recommend this recipe, at least not with whole wheat flour.

My first try at aebleskivers and it was sooo easy!!! The taste was light AND flavorful. Fun to make.... I filled pan wells 1/2 full then added 1/2 tsp homemade jam & topped off with 1 tsp of mix. I am so excited I want to make them for dinner & breakfast. You could add little chuncks of link sausage or apples or .... whatever! Possibilites are endless. GREAT RECIPE!!!

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 excited about making them again.
