Ableskiver (Pancake Balls)

Home | Recipes | A


  • 2 c Sifted flour
  • 2 tb Sugar
  • 1 ts Baking soda
  • 1 ts Cardamom
  • 3/4 ts Salt
  • 1 c Thick sour cream
  • 2/3 c Milk
  • 3 Egg yolks, beaten
  • 2 tb Melted butter


Set an ableskiver pan over low heat
Sift together and set aside:
Make a well in center of dry ingredients. Add liquid mixture all at one time, stirring until well blended.
Beat until rounded peaks are formed: 3 egg whites. Gently spread batter over egg whites and fold together.
Test ableskiver pan by dropping on it a few drops of cold water; if drops dance around in small beads, temperature is right. Grease well with butter (About 1/2 tsp. per well)
Pour batter into wells, filling about one half full. With a fork turn ableskivers frequently to brown evenly. Do not pierce. Ableskivers are done when a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Serve immediately sprinkled with Confectioners' sugar. If desired, accompany with a tart jam. About 4 doz. balls.
Apple Pancake Balls (Ableskiver II
Follow above recipe. Rinse, pare and dice 2 medium-sized apples. Sprinkle about 1 tsp. of the diced apples over batter in each well.
