In the month of December we have so many traditions. Aebleskiver and Glogg is one of them – especially if you are Danish like me! We really like to get together with friends and family and have a great time. It it called Hygge, which is an atmosphere of warmth, calm and well-being as well as the ability to enjoy simple pleasures and live in the moment. Danes are really good at that 🙂

The history of aebleskiver

Around 1700 aebleskiver was actually slices of apples breaded in flour and egg and fried in a pan.
The way we know aebleskiver today was first discovered around 1870, where Hans Christian Andersen described aebleskiver in the fairy tale “The Cripple”. Also, in Peter’s Christmas by Johan Krohn you will see the preparation of aebleskiver illustrated.

Today in Denmark, we eat abeleskiver as a desert and occasionally as dinner with a favorite jam and powdered sugar. In the US able skiver is used more as a breakfast, and often times you will have cheese, berries, chocolate or vegetables in them.

It is a bit time consuming to make aebleskiver, which is why many buy them frozen and reheat in the oven. However, there is a certain Hygge making them from scratch.

Makes about 20

3 egg
0,5 tsp natron
0,5 tsp baking soda
Fine shredded peel from one lemon
7 oz all purpose flour
2,8 oz arrow root
0.5 oz coconut flower sugar
0,5 tsp salt
1 tsp of koriander, cardemom, ground vanilla and husk
16 fl oz of rice or almond milk
1,7 oz of butter

Whisk the egg whites and natron into a firm mass. Mix all dry ingredients in your mixer, and all wet ingredients in a bowl. Slowly add the wed ingredients to the dry, and mix it for a couple of minutes.
Carefully add the egg whites

Heat your aebleskiver pan and add a little coconut oil or organic butter in every spot.
Add dough 3/4 up and wait untill it starts getting firm. Turn the aebleskiver and keep baking untill it’s even in color.
Serve with your favorite jam and powder sugar
