Aebleskiver or Ebleskiver recipe needed...

First, is it Aebleskiver or Ebleskiver?

I just bought my first cast-iron abelskiver pan at Tap Phong and tried it out.

I'm excited about the concept, but one site suggested using pancake mix. I made a really nice, homemade apple sauce and put a small dallop or dulce de leche in the middle, but they sucked. I'm sure it's because of the pancake mix.

Does anyone have any tried and true recipes for Ebleskiver?


p.s. also looking for a good recipe for blini if anyone has one of those as well.

  1. I have the ones my MIL gave me and have never used them so will be interested in responses to this. Mine aren't nonstick. And HOW do you pronounce the word?!?

        Amazing timing. Just unpacked them a couple of days ago. I'm going to keep repeating this til it's engrained. Thanks MG.

          My pleasure! I also had to know and lucked out. :)

          I know there are lots of recipes out there, but I'm looking for one that someone has tried. Here is a link - in response to your question if it hasn't already been answered. I'm not sure if I like the article, or just the photo.

            Thanks for the pronunciation :) My MIL pronounced them 'able-skeever' and I pretty much knew THAT wasn't right.

        2. Here is a recipe for Aebleskiver. Pancake batter just doesn't seem to work right. You can also buy a mix at that is great. They also have an instructional video on YouTube. Our family has enjoyed these for years and years.

          Traditional Aebleskiver Recipe:

          2 cups buttermilk 2 cups flour

          2 eggs 2 t baking powder

          1/2 t salt 1/2 t soda

          2 T sugar 4 T melted butter

          Separate the eggs. Mix egg yolks and all the other ingredients together at one time and beat until smooth.

          Beat the whites stiff and fold in last.

          Allow batter to set for 20 minutes to let baking powder work.

          1. It might be just as easy for you to do a Google search for the variations in spelling for Aebelskiver, Ableskiver, Aveleskiver, Ebleskiver, etc. to see all the recipes that are out there; there's a million of 'em. You'll find them with and without yeast. To get started with your new pan, try using a simple pancake mix and reduce the liquid by about two tablespoons.
            Usually the box that the Aebleskiver is when you purchase it has a fairly good recipe to give you an idea on basic ingredients. You'll need something to turn them with - I use an aluminum knitting needle and a "three turn" method.
            Here's a good video:

            1. The W-S website has a bunch of recipes for them (since they sell the pan). I've made the cinnamon roll-filled ones and they are yummy.
