Danish Ableskiver  Recipe

Danish Ableskiver

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!
