So my sister got me a Danish cookbook for Christmas & I'm finally putting it to use.  Our heritage is part Danish, but we were raised in California & never really learned to cook Danish food before our grandparents died.  So lately I've been getting into it & figured I'd try Æbleskiver, since my aunt got me a pan for Christmas.  Smiley  It's kind of like a cross between a pancake & a donut, sprinkled with powdered sugar or sometimes served with raspberry jelly.

So above are the Æbleskiver cooking.  Here they are in progress:



And here they are on a plate.



They taste pretty good!   Just waiting for DH to get home to get his approval.  Wink

I love those.  the funny thing is that I dont have a pan for them, but what I do is make them in my Toyaki pan, which are japanese fish shaped cakes.  and its kind of weird to eat with raspberry jam.

Oooh. I have an electric takoyaki pan that would work great.

What was wierd is this recipe called for cardamom.  I'm going to have to dig out my grandma's recipe, but I'm pretty sure it didn't call for that. 

DH gave his approval & ate like half of them.  Smiley

They weren't hard to make at all, but you do need the special pan.

They look yummy.

I've only had these at the Scandinavian festival, so I don't understand why they need a special pan.  I have a cookbook for Danish pastries and it doesn't mention a special pan, so where do I buy the pan for it?

The pan has semi-circles in it & you fill each one about 3/4 full.  Then, as they cook, you turn them, so they end up in a sphere.  Without the pan, they wouldn't end up in a sphere.  Like this:

You can google the pan to find where they sell them.  You may have also seen the lame pancake puff infomercials a couple years ago - same kinda thing.

Thank you for the link.  Somehow I always thought they were baked in a muffin tin.  D'oh.

Now I gotta go find a pan to make them.
