My grandma Coco has been making ableskivers for as long as I can remember.
The one bummer about them is they need a special pan that can only be used for that purpose which breaks one my cardinal rules of kitchen gadgets. Everything needs to be able to be used for more than one thing. But I do break my rule for my ableskiver pan. I can’t image life without them.
Ableskivers are a round pancake like treat made from a batter lightened with whipped egg whites.
You grease your pan, pour a little batter into each well, and when the bottom is set you start turning them slowly with a toothpick until they are perfectly round and cooked thru in the middle.
They are a little time consuming, but so worth the effort.
You can eat really anything on them, Nutella, Cookie butter, jam, jelly, syrup, etc.
We like to eat them with butter and pomegranate jelly.
- 5 eggs, separated
- 3 cups milk
- 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 2½ cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- ½ teaspoon salt
- Preheat your ableskiver pan over medium heat.
- Mix the egg yolks, milk and oil together in a large bowl. Sift together the flour, baking soda, sugar, and salt. Add to the egg yolk and milk mixture. Beat the egg whites until stiff and fold into the egg yolk batter.
- Spray your pan with non stick spray. Fill each little well with batter, and when the bottom has set start turning the ableskivers a little bit at time until they are perfectly round.
