Authentic Danish Aebleskiver (GF Version Included)
My mom has been making aebleskiver for as long as I can remember. She is what I always say is “off the boat” Danish. Her entire family lives in Denmark and she only moved to America in the 80’s after getting married and having my brother. So I would say she has some serious street cred when it comes to Danish food.
I remember when my mom would make these I would put way too much powdered sugar on them (and always cough a bit from inhaling it) and also use way too much jam.
Since my mom has been diagnosed with celiac disease quite a few years ago, she has been finding recipes to alter to make gluten free. This one really worked out well since it was replacing AP flour with just gluten free AP flour.
These can easily be made ahead of time for a party and then frozen or refrigerated because nobody wants to be sitting there all morning making pan after pan of aebleskiver before having to get ready for a party later on.
Try to use something similar to a knitting needle to turn the aebleskiver. My mom uses an actual knitting needle but if you don’t have one I would think that maybe a toothpick would work fine or a skewer stick.
You have to buy an actual cast iron aebleskiver pan in order to make these correctly. There isn’t a work around for something like this. These can be purchased in many places nowadays. I linked one from Amazon that has good reviews that works well.
Here are a few pictures of the process in the pan that can help with the part that people find intimidating.
Let me know what you think of this recipe if you try it. What are some other things that you like to dip your aebleskiver in?
