An ableskiver pan is a cast iron fry pan with holes in it much like a muffin tin
that is placed over a open burner. I got mine in Solvang California but I'm sure
you can get them at specialty shops.
2 cup Sifted flour
2 tablespoon Sugar
1 teaspoon Baking soda
1 teaspoon Cardamom
3/4 teaspoon Salt
1 cup Thick sour cream
2/3 cup Milk
3 Egg yolks, beaten
2 tablespoon Melted butter
Set an ableskiver pan over low heat, Sift together dry ingredients and set aside
Make a well in center of dry ingredients. Add liquid mixture all at one time,
stirring until well blended.
Beat until rounded peaks are formed: 3 egg whites. Gently spread batter over egg
whites and fold together.
Test ableskiver pan by dropping on it a few drops of cold water; if drops dance
around in small beads, temperature is right. Grease well with butter (About 1/2
tsp. per well)
Pour batter into wells, filling about one half full. With a knitting needle turn
ableskivers frequently to brown evenly. Do not pierce. Ableskivers are done when
a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Serve immediately sprinkled
with Confectioners' sugar. If desired, accompany with a tart jam.
During the summer I like to make homemade plum jam ( more like a syrup really
)and that's what we eat with ableskivers. That and lot's of Danish sausage!
