“Pancake Puffs” – Danish Aebelskivers
I got a new Aebelskiver pan with some of my Christmas money. They’re just so cute! Half pancake, half popover these little breakfast puffs will please your whole family. Get creative with the fillings. Or, add a little cinnamon or nutmeg to the batter. Plus, the ingredients are super-frugal.
Pancake Puffs: Ingredients
- 2 C. flour
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1 Tbsp. sugar
- 2 Tbsp. butter, melted
- 2 C. buttermilk
- 3 eggs, separated
- Vegetable oil for frying
How to Make Pancake Puffs
- In a bowl, beat the egg whites until they form stiff peaks. Set aside.
- Mix together the flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda, sugar, egg yolks, melted butter and buttermilk at one time and beat until smooth. Gently fold in the egg whites.
- Put a small amount of vegetable oil in the bottom of each aebleskiver pan cup and heat on medium. Pour in about 2 tablespoons of the batter into each cup. As soon as they get bubbly around the edge, turn them quickly. For turning, you can use a skewer, knitting needle or a fork. Continue cooking, turning the ball to keep it from burning.
- Serve immediately.
