Thank goodness you do not have to pronounce “aebleskiver” to enjoy them. In Danish, “aebleskiver” means apple slices. This Danish holiday breakfast treat is a round pancake usually filled with apples or other fruit and can be sprinkled with powdered sugar. Your Lodge Pro-Logic cast iron aebleskiver pan will soon be a family favorite. It measures 16 5/8 inches in length and 9 inches in diameter. The 7 impressions are 2 inches in diameter and 1 inch deep. You will wonder why you did not get your pan sooner. It is made by Lodge in the USA and has a life- time warranty.
The batter for aebleskiver normally will include wheat flour, mixed with buttermilk, milk or cream, eggs, sugar and a pinch of salt. Some recipes call for butter, cardamom and lemon zest to improve taste, and a leavening agent, usually baking powder, but sometimes yeast, to aerate the batter.
Pour batter into the oiled indentations of your cast iron aebleskiver pan and as the aebleskiver begin to cook, turn them with a knitting needle, skewer or fork to give the cakes their characteristic spherical shape. They were traditionally cooked with bits of apple (aeble) or applesauce inside but these ingredients are very rarely included in modern Danish forms of the dish. Aeblekiver are not sweet but traditionally have been served dipped in raspberry, strawberry, lingonberry or blackberry jam and sprinkled with powdered sugar. You may have trouble saying it but you and your family will have no difficulty savoring it.aebleskiver pan, cast iron cookware, Featured, Recipe | Comment (1)
