Family Holiday traditions are made,from a particular destination to a favorite meal shared by the family for special occasions or holidays. We discovered these tasty eats in Solvang,California and has been part of our family tradition since 1978. Has since been passed on to our kids to carry on the tradition. This recipe can be prepared over a traditional home stove or over an open campfire...
AEBLESKIVER (PANCAKE BALL)RECIPE:
These are delicious for breakfast,lunch, or Sunday night supper. A special pan, called an Aebleskiver pan, Monk's pan or Danish cake pan is needed for frying them.
Items needed: (for approx 2+ dozens)
2 Cups buttermilk
2 Cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
2 Tbsp sugar
4 Tbsp melted butter
Seperate the eggs and beat the whites stiff. Mix all the other ingredients together at one time and beat until smooth. Fold in the egg whites last (lightly- do not over mix). Put about a Tablespoon full of vegetable oil or shortening in the bottom of each Aebleskiver pan cup and have hot (ready for batter). Pour in about 2 Tablespoons full of batter into each cup. As soon as they get bubbly around the edges 1/4 turn onto its side quickly, using an ice pick or wooden skewer or if your Danish you can use a long knitting needle. Continue cooking turning the ball in 1/4 turns until completely enclosed and the the needle or skewer comes out clean.
Serve hot with warm syrup, warm jam (any flavor)or powdered sugar.
These also reheat great in a toaster oven for a late night dessert.
