Æbleskiver (Buttermilk)

I have always used my mothers recipe for æbleskiver, but I tried to compare the original (regular milk/yeast) recipe to a buttermilk/baking soda/baking powder recipe and I must admit it's much better, very moist and fluffy.

Prep: 10 minutes

Cook: 30 minutes

Yields: 10


  • 01.

    In a clean glass or metal bowl, beat the egg whites with an electric mixer until they can hold a stiff peak. Set aside.

  • 02.

    Mix together the flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda, sugar, egg yolks, melted butter and buttermilk at one time and beat until smooth. Gently fold in the egg whites last.

  • 03.

    Put about 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in the bottom of each æbleskiver pan cup and heat until hot. Pour in about 2 tablespoons of the batter into each cup. As soon as they get bubbly around the edge, turn them quickly (Danish cooks use a long knitting needle, but a fork will work). Continue cooking, turning the ball to keep it from burning.
