Aebleskiver (also spelled ebelskiver) is a tasty, flaky, buttery Danish pancake that's halfway between a popover and the classic pancakes you're familiar with. Aebleskiver pancakes are delightfully airy with a subtle vanilla flavor. These fluffy Danish pancakes are fantastic when served with jam, powdered sugar, fresh berries, or homemade Nutella, making them perfect as part of your breakfast or a weekend brunch. You'll need an aebleskiver pan to make these delectable puffs at home, but they're so versatile, enticing, and easy-to-make, it's definitely worth buying one.

Notes

– Make sure the bowl you use to whip the egg whites is completely clean. If there are any traces of grease, the stiff peaks won't form.

– Let your ingredients come to room temperature before you begin making your aebleskiver.

– Use a spatula to see if the aebleskiver are beginning to turn golden brown before flipping them.
