I recently stumbled across Aunt Else's Æbleskiver , I was immediately intrigued, I had never heard aebleskiver before but decided to give it a try. What it is a traditional spherical pastry Danish treat, somewhat similar in taste and texture to an American pancake, but light and fluffy like a popover. They are traditionally filled with a slice of apple, but can be made to suit a range of tastes from sweet to savory, and are often topped with syrup, jam or applesauce.
Æbleskiver - pronounced EB-el-sku-wyr , get it's name from a Danish word meaning apple slices due to it's traditional filling.
Aunt Else’s recipe has been in their family for over 100 years using Mid-western organic wheat flours and buttermilk. They are made on the stove top in cast iron pans designed to make perfectly round pastries.
- Aunt Else's offers their own high quality, locally made 9-hole cast iron æbleskiver pan that comes with a lifetime manufacturer's warranty.
I must say that I really liked this pan and have already been thinking of additional uses for it.
The instructions on making Aebleskiver are a little intimidating especially for a novice, such as my self. Luckily, They had a very easy to follow instructional video that I was able to use as my guide.
Make æbleskiver like a pro with AE's instructional video!
The first batch that we made were slightly overcooked, but the next batch turned out perfect.
We opted to use Ghirardelli Milk chocolate squares as a filling and topped with powdered sugar. They were really good and easy to make.
