Aebleskiver or Danish Pancakes (with Nutella filling )

Aebleskiver are Danish pancakes which are small ball shaped. The batter for making the aebleskiver is similar to the American pancake batter, but they are prepared in a special pan called aebleskiver pan which is very similar to our south Indian paniyaram pan.  Hence these Danish pancakes are like small spheres rather than the usual round pancakes. The word Aebleskiver is a Danish word which means apple slice. So these pancakes are usually made with apple slices as filling inside.

I have referred the recipe here to make these traditional Danish pancake balls. I have used my paniyaram pan and I have used Nutella as filling. You can use fruits such as apple, banana or even jam, peanut butter etc can also be used as filling. They can be made as plain without any filling and can be served with some jam, maple syrup etc. These taste delicious with or without filling and sure kids would love them. My son love these cute pancake balls a lot, even the big kid..i mean my hubby is also a big fan of this yummy munchies, so I make them often :) :)







You need...

1 cup All Purpose Flour / Maida
2 tsp Baking powder
3 tbsp Sugar
1/4 tsp ground Cinnamon (optional)
1/4 tsp Salt
1 egg
3/4 cup Milk
2 tbsp Oil or Butter
Nutella



To prepare...

Combine flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and cinnamon in a bowl. 

Beat an egg and whisk with milk and oil. Add this to the flour mixture and mix well to form a batter, not too thick and not too thin.

Heat the aebleskiver or paniyaram pan. You can brush the holes slightly with butter. I have used cooking spray instead, sprayed a little oil over the holes. 

Now pour the batter to fill up half of each hole. Then quickly put less than a tsp of Nutella over the batter in each hole and finally put very little batter in each hole to cover the Nutella filling. You need to be quick as well as patient here. The batter might rise upto the top of the hole soon. So you need to add Nutella and batter to cover as soon as possible. 

Cover and cook for a minute until bottom gets browned. Then slowly flip to the other side and let it get brown. Your danish pancake balls are ready now. Serve hot.



Notes:
* You can use any kind of filling such as apple slices, banana slices, jam, peanut butter etc.
* They taste best when served hot.
