Danish Oven Pancake (Aeggekage)

Recipe by  

"An Aeggekage is a traditional Danish oven pancake, usually served as a buffet item or as a dessert for a family holiday meal. It is a light, cake-like dish that is not too sweet and absolutely delicious with fresh seasonal berries and fresh whipped cream! (Think of it as a sweetened Yorkshire pudding). Just make sure you serve immediately, this pancake does not do well cold nor is it a good leftover. But chances are you won't have any remaining Aeggekage to worry about!"

In denmark we also make this as a savory dish... made in a pan or oven, without the sugar and fruit ofc. but served with fried bacon and cut shives on top and ryebread to eat with it

Tried this recipe, it came out of the oven looking great but my family and friends did not like the salty taste, guess we are just used to having pancakes made with more of the sugar than salt.

Decrease the temperature! This is a great recipe--when baked at 425. At 500, this just browns or blackens before cooking in the middle. I love these, but if I rated this recipe based on the product I got without decreasing the temperature, I would give it two stars. If you plan to follow the recipe exactly, take my advice and start watching for burning long before you are supposed to take it out of the oven.

Fabulous but one hint. This really rises in the oven so put it on a low rack to cook. Also great w/ carmelized apples.

I made this on a weekend up at Lake Vermillion, MN with friends. Since it was not my own recipe or my own kitchen and we were with new friends I prayed this wouldn't fail. I followed the recipe closely but dared myself to add drops of philly cream cheese. I wanted to insure a success and what better way than dairy and fat? It is awesome and it will impress friends. Try with canned blueberries and extra creamy whipping cream. I confess there was an awkward silence though when it was served. Guests said it looks strange but tastes like heaven.

This was great! I was slightly nervous about it because my husband is very picky about textures, but he said it was delicious. I only made enough for 4 servings, so I used an 8x8 pan. It seemed like there was a bit too much butter left after it baked, but it sure tasted yummy still! I served it with the Dutch Honey Syrup from this site, some sliced strawberries, and homemade whipped cream... the perfect combo!

Fantastic! This is so great. I have spent years trying to find a recipes this good. It brings back so many childhood memories and I will make this time and time again.

This recipe is just ok. Not the recipe I was looking for. The one I used in the past but lost, allowed the sides of the puff to rise quite high and this one did not. This rose slightly but was not substaintial. I cut the amount of butter in half which worked out fine. As the pan had plenty of butter for the batter to swim in. Still even with this correction, the cooking time had to be extended a good 5 minutes as the batter was still jiggly after the suggested amount of time. Part of the problem could possibly be the suggested pan or size. Original oven pancakes were made in dutch ovens. Maybe a 9 x 12 pan just wont ever work properly. This recipe also does NOT turn out the correct consistency of Dutch Oven Pancakes. A bit mushy not firm like a quiche but it was cooked throughout. Again I suggest using NO SALT butter if you deem it necessary to use this recipe as the salty taste overwhelmed the dish. I will keep searching for the correct and orignial recipe. This is certainly NOT it.
