Aebleskiver are a traditional Danish dessert or snack – in Denmark they are eaten most often in the winter time. These are pretty rare to find in restaurants in the U.S. – but if you happen to be in California – take a day trip to Solvang, it’s a beautiful and quaint Danish Village just a little north of Los Angeles, there are several cafes and restaurants that serve aebleskiver there. Aebleskiver are light, fluffy and have a lovely golden crust on the outside – they are best described as a mix between a pancake and donut hole. You’ll need to use an Aebleskiver or takoyaki pan, they are pretty quick and easy to make once you get the hang of it. You can serve it with your favorite jam or you can actually add a little bit of jam or small chopped up apple pieces to the center of the aebleskiver batter while your cooking them.
