Arne's Famous Aebleskiver (Solvang)


There are some people who go to Solvang for the windmills, cuckoo clocks, and wooden shoes, and then there are people like me who go for the aebleskiver. Popular in Solvang, stores sell the specially designed cast-iron pan so you can make your own, and more then one restaurant has it on their menu. Although believe me when I say every aelbeskiver is not alike. It was through some bad experiences that I found that the "Solvang Restaurant" is the only true place to get this warm golden brown beauty. They even go one step further in letting you watch them make the aebleskiver through an attached walk-up window, where you can quickly order and enjoy.

Served hot, drenched in raspberry jam, and sprinkled with powder sugar, for $3.75 you get three and it’s worth every penny. Eat it for breakfast, dessert, or an afternoon snack, an aebleskiver is good at any time during the day.

  1. Nope, REAL abeleskivers have a slice of apple in the middle - which is what the name means and none do this in Solvang. Have to come to my house to get those from my Danish grandmother's recipe which also separates the eggs which never happens in the Solvang restaurant recipes either.

      I actually knew this bit about the apple, hence why I never actually said they were "real" aebleskivers. I am curious to see what the taste difference is. I imagine that if without is great, with can only be better.
