Aebleskiver = Danish Pancake Balls
Nancy J. Patrykus
A long time ago when Vikings roamed the Nordic lands a group of Vikings finished a difficult battle, weary and hungry. They returned to their ship, heads hung low in defeat. Seeking to lift their spirits and fill their bellies, the Vikings whipped up a batch of pancakes.To cook them they greased their shields and poured on the pancake batter & set the whole thing over the fire. The result was a crispy round ball now called an Aebleskiver!
How to Make Aebleskiver = Danish Pancake Balls
- 3When browned on one side( almost right away).
Feel free to turn them several times.
When done lightly run a knife around the edges before turning. Then turn with a chop stick, knitting needle or a plastic fork.
Always do a taste test.
You usually have to turn only once.
With practice it gets easier.
Do not get discouraged.
