Easy Recipe for Danish Aebleskivers

January 21, 2013

Every year the husband and I travel to Solvang for our annual family get together. One of our traditions is having homemade aebleskivers for breakfast.  Aebleskivers, a Danish dessert, are a cross between doughnut holes and round pancakes served with confectioner’s sugar and jelly.  My brother-in-law has it down to a science: the timing is crucial in order to prevent burning on the outside and uncooked batter inside. Needless to say they are a delightful treat that can be enjoyed on special occasions at least once a year.

Danish Aebleskivers (Makes approximately 30)



2 egg whites
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 tablespoon white sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 egg yolks
4 tablespoons butter, melted. Few more tablespoons extra for frying
2 cups buttermilk


Danish Aebleskiver

  1. In a bowl, beat the egg whites with an electric mixer until they can hold a stiff peak. Set aside.
  2. Mix together the flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda, sugar, egg yolks, melted butter and buttermilk at one time and beat until smooth. Mix in the egg whites last.

3.     Grease bottom of each aebleskiver pan cup with butter and heat until hot. Pour in about 2 tablespoons of the batter into each cup. As soon as they get bubbly around the edge, turn them halfway, quickly (As shown in picture). Continue cooking, turning the ball to keep it from burning.

Hope you enjoy!  Thanks for stopping by!

    Interesting, so you put the batter in and then half way through the process you pull them up and over? Look good!

    We love the Arnie’s Aebleskivers from Solvang, but the home made filled with a dollop of raspberry jam taste even better. Good job 🙂
