"As a young girl, I constantly craved Saturdays and Sundays when my mother would prepare these small delicious pancakes. Now as a college student, I still look forward to Christmas time when our family is together and my mother and I prepare an overwhelming amount to feed family members! Definitely add in any kind of jam, peanut butter, honey, Nutella®, chocolate chips, fruit (diced apples, blueberries, etc.); the possibilities are endless and so delicious!"

whole wheat flour
2 1/2 teaspoons
egg, lightly beaten
unsalted butter, melted
My first try at aebleskivers and it was sooo easy!!! The taste was light AND flavorful. Fun to make.... I filled pan wells 1/2 full then added 1/2 tsp homemade jam & topped off with 1 tsp of mix. I am so excited I want to make them for dinner & breakfast. You could add little chuncks of link sausage or apples or .... whatever! Possibilites are endless. GREAT RECIPE!!!
I love aebleskivers, but the whole wheat flour in this recipe makes them super dense ( not a good thing). They were solid balls of dough, not the fluffy, donut-like consistency I associate with aebskivers. Using whole wheat flour sounds like a great idea because it will make it healthy, but I don't think it's worth it... These have lots of butter and sugar in them anyways, so they're not going to be a health food... Perhaps a Better, and much tastier option, is being sure to serve them with lots of fruit on the side. I don't recommend this recipe, at least not with whole wheat flour.
As a teenager my friends would get together and have Aebleskivers made by one of the grand Mother of one of the kids. We loved them hot with butter in the middle of the round pancake. I'm excited about making them again.
I thought this recipe was very good. I used half whole wheat flour and half white flour and doubled the recipe. I filled them with apricot jam and some with chocolate chips or nutella. Sprinkled them with a small amount of powdered sugar. All were very good. I will save this recipe and make again.
excellent and easy!
this was wonderful. Our family adds fruit pie filling and whipped cream.
In my experience aebleskivers taste almost like a crepe. These were dense and bready, more like spherical pancakes. Next time I'll add more egg and liquid to the batter. Might have to separate and beat the egg whites.
They taste really great with the spices in them and love that it has the whole wheat flour. My whole family loves these with chocolate in them!
