    AEBLESKIVER (Pancake Balls or Swedish Pancakes)

    2 Cups Buttermilk ½ teaspoon salt
    2 Cups Flour ½ teaspoon soda*
    2 Eggs 2 Tablespoons Sugar
    2 teaspoons baking powder* 4 Tablespoons Melted butter
    ½ teaspoon Vanilla liquid ½ teaspoon Cardamom


    Separate 2 eggs and beat whites stiff, set aside. Mix all other ingredients together at one time and beat until smooth. Fold in egg whites last by hand.

    Put about a Tablespoon of Vegetable oil or Shortening in the bottom of each Aebleskiver Pan cup, heat till hot. Pour about 2 Tablespoons of the batter into each cup. As soon as it gets bubbly around the edge, turn quickly . “Danish cooks like to use a long knitting needle for this but a fork works very well.” Continue cooking turning the ball to keep it from burning, until a straw or knitting needle comes out clean, when stuck in the center. Serve while hot with Syrup, Jam or Powdered sugar. Loganberry jam is the Swedish tradition, availible from Ikea or on the net.

    Swedish Pancakes can also be cooked flat, by spraying a pan with a “Good” quality cooking spray at 300°F to 325°F.

    *Note that both baking soda and baking powder are used.

    5) Crepes may be stacked on a plate and heated in microwave just before serving.

    I let the kids do the below, kind of like our DIY tacos

    6) Serve hot with warm fruit or jam rolled into center.*

    * Also use whipped cream and or T. Marzetti Cream Cheese Fruit Dip

    Will serve four, and ready in 40 minutes. Recipe is easily adjusted up or down by thirds.

    This is what you do...

    This recipe makes a big load of pancakes... but let them cool on racks, place in a storage bag, separated by waxed paper, and freeze. Microwave in the morning- no pain, no strain and I promise you will be the breakfast hero.

    BUTTERMILK PANCAKES

    3 Cups all-purpose flour
    3 Tsp baking powder
    1.5 Tsp baking soda
    1 Tsp salt
    5 Tbs sugar
    4 large eggs
    1 quart buttermilk
    5 Tbs melted butter

    Mix all the dry ingredients, then in a separate bowl mix the wet stuff. Add the wet to the dry, and whisk to combine. Don't overdo it... there should be small lumps. If it is a little too stiff, add a little cold water.

    Then let it rest for about 10 minutes. It will thicken, and some bubbles will form. Now it's time to make the cakes. Just do as you normally would, but these have a little more sugar, so make sure they don't burn on the bottom.

    Try the freeze idea... breakfast in minutes!
    Experience is what you have an hour after you need it.

    My mother inlaw died at age 99. We have her electric waffle iron that she got as a wedding present. Its about 70 years old and still makes perfect waffles.

    Believe it or not I ain't a big fan of pancakes. I put my maple suryp on boiled carrots and vanilla ice cream. yummmmm.

    The best pancake mix, out of the box, I bought at Aldi's. Kids like pancakes.

    It is a really good out of the box mix IMO.
    I'll try being nicer if you'll try being smarter.

    I will defend, to your death, my right to my opinion.

    This stuff is good.

    There's a big difference between the regular mix and the fiber mix thought. Regular is better unless you need to become regular.

    I like using bisquick and chopping up apples in small pieces and adding cinnamon to the batter and fold it in after everything is mixed.

    Pretty good for an out the box mix.
    Better with real maple syrup. But at 80 bucks a gallon. You might want to fill up the work truck instead.

    Get regular pancake mix ,cut 20% with potato flour . add some chopped pecans ( if you like them )and 4 tblspoons of almond/vanilla extract ( amaretta works too and the alchohol cooks out). Throw in rainbow sprinkles for the kids and you have ( mardi gras pancakes). or ommit the sprinkles if theres no kids around . For the syrup mix 1/3 maple 1/3 dark cane syrup and 1/3 honey and you have my secret Louisiana swamp syrup . MANGEZ , BOISSON , ET SOYEZ , JOYEUX ! Eat drink and be happy !
