Danish ‘Æbleskiver‘ with 01 Pilsner Spent Grain Flour
- Pour buttermilk into a bowl and add wheat flour, 01 Pilsner Spent Grain Flour, sugar, and salt, and mix together.
- Add the egg yolks and mix again.
- Whisk the egg whites until they are stiff, and gently fold them into the batter along with cardamom and orange zest.
- Dissolve the baking soda in a small amount of buttermilk, and gently fold it into the batter.
- Heat the æbleskiver pan well (just above medium heat) and add a dollop of butter in each hole.
- Fill each hole with the batter - only just below the rim, as they will rise.
- The first time they are turned, flip the æbleskiver upside down using a meat needle or knitting needle when they are light brown on the bottom.
- The æbleskiver should be baked on all sides, so turn them a few times before removing them from the pan (you can open one of them carefully to check if they are thoroughly baked). Serve them warm with powdered sugar and jam.
Note: Æbleskiver are a traditional Danish Christmas recipe. The frying of the æbleskiver is done in a special round frying pan with seven holes. Outside of Denmark, these pans may be hard to find. Otherwise, a puff dumpling pan or a Japanese takoyaki pan will also work.
