Old Fashioned Danish Aebleskiver Pancakes | Light and fluffy pancakes, made with simple ingredients like flour, buttermilk and eggs. These amazing delights are round in shape and can be made with fresh fruit or plain. Delicious served with apple butter or blackberry jelly. Typically a Danish Christmas treat, these Old Fashioned Danish Aebleskiver Pancakes are also a great way to celebrate birthdays or just when you want something special.
I was first introduced to Aebleskiver Pancakes in my home town at a little Danish diner. I looked and looked for a pan so I could make the same little bites at home. I finely found it at a tourist place called Solvang in California. Mind you this was before Amazon so ordering it was not even in my mind set. I no longer live in that town and am happy that I have this pan so my husband and I can still enjoy Old Fashioned Danish Aebleskiver Pancakes at home!
For this recipe you’ll need a special pan (pictured below). The pan is cast iron, when seasoned it will last forever! I’ve had mine for over 20 years and it still looks great!
Not only are these pancakes great for breakfast but they are also great as a mid morning snack. Sprinkle on some powdered sugar and you’re set. Or… take a small container of maple syrup, honey, jelly or my favorite apple butter. They’re good plain or dipped. For special occasions you can make your own sauce!

- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 cups buttermilk
- 3 large eggs, separated
- unsalted butter
- powdered sugar for sprinkling
In a medium bow whisk together the flour, salt and baking soda. Stir in the buttermilk and egg yolks. In a medium mixing bowl, add the egg whites. Beat on medium high until soft peaks. Fold into the batter.
Heat pan with a little butter, vegetable oil or cooking spray in each well. I like to use butter. It adds a great brown butter flavor. Fill each well TWO THIRDS full. Cook 1 to 1½ minutes (per side) until golden brown. Use toothpicks to flip over. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Best when served hot.
