You may or may not be familiar with aebleskivers, but either way, they should make an appearance on your Christmas breakfast table.
Si Foster shares the yummy recipe.
2 cups buttermilk
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 cup melted butter
butter for pan
1. Separate the eggs and beat whites until soft peaks form, and set aside.
2. In another bowl, combine egg yolks and buttermilk and mix together.
3. Add flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar all at once.
4. Add melted butter and mix until blended on low speed (it’s also fine to do this by hand).
5. Fold in the egg whites using a spatula.
6. Heat an Aebleskiver pan over medium heat, brush each cup with melted butter.
7. Using a 1/4 cup measure, Pour about 2 tablespoons of batter into each cup, and, when bubbly around the edges, turn with a long wooden skewer or toothpick. this takes less than 2 minutes.
8. Continue cooking on the other side until golden. You can test for doneness by removing one of the balls of cooked dough and breaking in half.
9. If you would like to fill the Aebleskiver, you can place about 1 tablespoon of batter in pan, then drop a teaspoon of jam and top with more batter.
10. Serve sprinkled with powdered sugar, jam and butter.
You can skip the step where the eggs are separated, and simply add the eggs one at a time and beat well, but the dough will not have quite the same consistency as when the egg whites are beaten and folded in!
Add some cocoa powder for chocolate aebleskivers, or chocolate chips for a little twist.
