Æbleskiver (Danish pronunciation [ˈeːb̥ləˌsɡ̊iːwɐ]; are traditional Danish pancakes in a distinctive shape of a sphere. They are sort of cross between a European pancake and a popover. Æbleskiver are solid like a pancake but light and fluffy like a popover.
I had never heard of an Æbleskiver before but a friend made some and had us over to try them with some lingonberry sauce. Yummmmmm. A special Æbleskiver pan is used with a special Æbleskiver batter. I just like saying the word Æbleskiver. These are just a few iPhone photos taken of the process.
