Beat egg yolks until light and fluffy, then add the sugar and salt.
- 2 eggs
1 Tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup buttermilk
4 Tablespoons butter
Optional: apple slices or other fruit
Sift the flour with baking powder and baking soda, then add it to the egg mixture, alternating small amounts with the addition of the buttermilk, as you continue mixing.
Beat the egg whites until stiff, then gently fold them into the batter.
Heat the Aebleskiver pan. Place approximately 1/2 teaspoon of butter in each cup and heat until foamy.
Drop batter into cups, filling each about 2/3 full.
If you wish to use apple slices or other fruit, drop a slice in the center of each cavity.
Cook over medium heat until browned and crisp on bottom.
Turn each cake with a fork to cook the other side.
The Aebleskiver is done when a toothpick, or cake tester, inserted in the center comes out clean.
Remove cakes from pan and sprinkle with confectioner's sugar, if desired. Best when served warm.
They can be served with ice cream, powdered sugar, bananas, chocolate sauce, and other sweets.
They are nice as a snack with hot chocolate and whipped cream. Also great as a dessert with liqueur and ice cream.
You can also fill the inside by pouring some batter in the mould, adding a teaspoon of your filling, and covering with another layer of batter.
Sweet fillings can include: Jam, raisins, pieces of apple, marzipan (almond paste), pieces of banana, pieces of chocolates.
Savory fillings can include: Butter cheese with herbs, grated old cheese, strips of bacon, strips of salami.
This recipe makes about 2 dozen Aebleskivers.
