We have a local place that serves red velvet pancakes. I'm very tempted. Have some all-in-one blueberry pancake mix. Might give it a go in my aebelskiver pan.

Keep those hot cakes/flapjacks coming
If you have an aebleskiver pan, here's how to make them:

W-S had a chocolate mix. Maybe next time I'll make chocolate, filled with half a strawberry.

she makes it look sooooo easy. And, I wonder if her batter is a simple pancake batter.

I don't have the pan. But I do have an egg poaching pan. I wonder how I can adapt it for making aebleskivers. I see more experiments coming.

so much to learn, and only one lifetime to learn it in. Heavy sigh.

She drove me crazy with that pronunciation of æbleskiver. It's not ebbel, it's eh ble. And, æbleskiver is the plural of æbleskive.

So I checked my Danish cooking site and found 22 recipes for æbleskiver. Yes, Chief, it's just basically pancake batter. Some had yeast, some had baking soda and buttermilk, one had no leavening, some had baking powder, and one had half a dl of beer and baking powder.

All the ones I looked at used powdered sugar to sprinkle on the finished product.

It would also be traditional to grease the pan with lard.

Here's a Danish how to video. (less that three minutes) It doesn't really matter that you won't understand the words, she shows you. I like the use of a toothpick, instead of a skewer, because it leaves a smaller hole.

Hi, Chief.

I have what is called the "Pancake Puff". Bought it on ebay. It comes with everything shown (flavor injector, etc.). I used pancake batter & Pam. Supposedly, you can use (corn) muffin mix, brownie or cake mix, or eggs (omelette puffs) too.



Here are some more recipe ideas from Williams-Sonoma.

Have fun & enjoy
