It's always a special occasion whenever aebleskives (Danish pancakes) were made in the house - the picture at the bottom is of Marketing Coordinator, Nicole, and her grandma. You do need a special pan for them (below), so that they become spherical.
2 eggs, separated
1/3 cup sugar
3/4 cup milk
2 Tbsp butter or canola oil
1 tsp baking powder
1 2/3 cups flour
1 tsp cinnamon
Canola oil for cooking
Fill the wells of the Aebleskiver pan and heat over medium high heat until hot enough to fry dough.
Separate the egg whites and yolks into separate bowls. Stir the melted butter or oil with milk, sugar and egg yolks. Mix baking powder and cinnamon with the flour and gradually stir into the butter (or oil) and milk mixture. Whip egg whites until stiff peaks form and gently fold into batter until mixed.
Using 2 tablespoons, gently place a tablespoon of batter into each well. Rotate the batter in each well to cook all sides of the dough until golden brown. Test with toothpick. Aebleskives are done when the toothpick comes out clean. Keep warm in oven until all batter cooked.
Serve with maple syrup or powdered sugar or both!
