Makes Small batch (3-4 pans)
1. Seperate 1 egg, putting egg white in a small bowl and egg yolk in a larger one. Beat egg whites until stiff and egg yolk.
2. Add 1 cup buttermilk and 2 TBSP melted shortening (I use applesauce) to the egg yolk.
3. Sift together 9/10 (.916) cup flour, 1/3 teas. salt, 2 teas. sugar, 1/2 teas. baking soda, and 1/3 teas. nutmeg and add to the egg and milk mixture. Fold in stiff egg whites.
Preheat your aebelskiver pan on medium heat, adding a little shortening to each cup in the pan. When melted, add 1/8 cup batter to each cup. (Also known as a coffee measure) Cook until browned on bottom, then turn over. (We use turkey lacing skewers- they are perfect!) Cook until second side is browned.
*These are best served with maple syrup... but other fillings can be used. Whatever is your favorite. We use "honey bears" and poke the aebleskivers and fill them with syrup. Delicious! These are a family tradition at our house. We love them.
