Whenever the temperatures start dropping in South Florida, my boys start asking for aebleskiver. Aebleskiver around the holidays is an old family tradition, and the kids love it when I pull out the aebleskiver recipe. Aebleskiver means apple pieces, because in the old days, aebleskiver was made with a piece of apple inside.
Aebleskiver are easy to make, they taste fantastic and they are great to serve at parties, but be careful about making enough.
Check out this simple Aebleskiver Recipe:
- 2 cups buttermilk
- 7 eggs
- 2 cups flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 2 tblsp sugar
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 2 tbsp. of melted butter for frying.
- Powdered sugar, sugar, and jam for serving
- Divide the egg whites from the egg yolk.
- In a large bowl mix the egg yolk with the buttermilk, flour, baking soda, sugar and salt. Mix until well-blended and refrigerate for 1/2 hour.
- While the mixture is resting in the fridge, whisk the egg whites until stiffened.
- When the egg whites are stiffened, carefully stir them into the dough with a dough scraper.
- Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a small pot, add a drop to each room in the ableskive pan.
- Fill up the aebleskive pan with dough, and wait until the bottom is brown. When it is brown, tip the aebleskiver over with a wooden stick or knitting stick. Cook over medium heat.
- Serve with powdered sugar, sugar and jam of your choice. At my house we prefer strawberry jam with our aebleskiver.
The most expensive ingredients in aebleskiver are eggs and buttermilk, but if you seek out sales and coupons plus shop at ALDI, you can get some great prices on these ingredients. Last week Target had eggs on sale at $1.35, ALDI has them at $1.39 for a dozen at the moment, and for buttermilk Publix currently has a $0.75 coupon in their yellow advantage ad.
