These Dutch pancake balls are very popular. Most aebleskiver pans are made of cast iron or heavy cast aluminum. The secret to round balls is to turn several times before the batter is completely cooked.

Stove Top


  • 4 large
    eggs, separated
  • 2 Tbsp
  • 2 c
    all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp
    baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp
  • 2 c
    2% milk
  • 1/4 c
    butter, softened
  • ·
    confectioner's sugar
  • ·
    applesauce, if desired

How to Make Aebleskiver


  1. Whisk the egg yolks and sugar until foamy. Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl. Add the flour mixture and milk to the egg yolks and whisk until smooth.
  2. Beat the egg whites in a large bowl with the electric mixer on high speed until soft peaks form. When you lift the beaters, the whites will make peaks that fold back slightly.
  3. Gently fold the egg whites into the batter until smooth. Heat an aebleskiver pan over medium heat until drops of water sizzle. Place about 1/4 tsp. butter in each cup. Add about 1/4 cup batter to each cup - about 3/4 full. Cook 1 to 2 minutes or until bottom half is browned. Use a skewer to slowly turn balls to cook the other sides. Balls are done when a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  4. Turn out pancake balls onto plate and keep warm in a slow oven. Dust with confectioner's sugar and serve with applesauce.
