2 cups buttermilk
2 cups flour
3 eggs, separated
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. soda
2 tsp. sugar
Powdered sugar, butter and warmed syrup
Use iron Danish cake pan with hollow ‘cups’ or bake in a skillet like ordinary pancakes, omitting the applesauce.
Beat separated egg whites until stiff, but not dry; set aside. In another bowl, beat yolks, add flour, baking powder, salt, soda, and sugar; fold in egg whites. Pour a small amount of butter in each cup. Use pastry brush to coat surface of cup. Fill each cup 2/3 full of dough. Place a small amount of applesauce (don’t spill!) on top of dough, then barely cover with a little more dough. Cook over low heat until surface bubbles. Turn quickly, but gently, with a pick or a thin fork-tine and finish baking the other side. Experiment with time and heat level testing center “pillow.” Serve rolled in powdered sugar, then top with butter and syrup or jam.
Two or three pans full may be kept warm in a low oven until everyone can start with three or four.
We REALLY REALLY liked these. However, when I did the first batch – had a little too much butter. When I tried blueberries, that didn’t really work (should have put in jam).
Hubby liked the ebleskivers filled with applesauce; I preferred them plain.
They are GOOD!
