It has, yet again, been a WHILE since I last posted....That is totally an understatement! Ha! But...I would like to apologize...life has been really weird and crazy...
Trying to find a job...
School is over...
Eh...the economy sucks...so what do I do?? I cook things!
This is the latest thing that I have made...
Æbleskiver (Danish meaning apple slices) are traditional Danish pancakes in the distinctive shape of a sphere. Somewhat similar in texture to American pancakes crossed with a popover, Æbleskiver are solid like a pancake but light and fluffy like a popover.
This the pan that they are cooked in...it's cast iron
Let me tell you...they are yummy!! They are traditionally eaten with syrup like with pancakes, but you can also use jam or jelly, or honey. They are also good when dipped in powdered sugar, or rolled in cinnamon sugar...really good and addicting!!
There are many recipes that I have come across, but this is the one that I liked the best:
(makes about 3 doz.)
2 c. milk
2 c. flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
Seperate the egg yolks and whites in two large bowls. Add the milk to the egg yolks and beat together. Sift in flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir to combine. Beat the egg whites until stiff. Fold into the milk mixture until just combined. Lumps are okay! Add 1/2 tsp. oil to a well seasoned Aebleskiver pan that is heated. Add 1 heaping spoon full to each well. Cook for about 1 min. then turn with a wooden skewer. Let new side set and then turn again...this takes a while to perfect...and describe...but its okay if they don't look perfect, they will still taste so! Check to make sure the middle is cooked by poking each ball with the skewer. Remove from pan and eat!
