This recipe has been posted here for play in ZWT9 - Scandinavia. These recipes are from website: - Christian's Danish Recipes.

Danish cooking is rooted in the peasant dishes served across the country before the Industrial Revolution in 1860.

These fritters sound great plain, but sound even more wonderful with the apple cream and rum sauce as recommended.

Please Note: The Apple Cream and Rum Sauce are optional.
