Æbleskiver or literally translated “sliced apples” is a Danish dessert, similar to donuts, which you usually eat around Christmas time. The batter is similar to pancake batter, but it is not exactly the same. I do not know if at one time these had sliced apples in the batter, but I’ve never had it with apples. I think this is a festive dessert that fits the season!
160 g flour
1¼ teaspoons baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
4 tsp sugar
¼ teaspoon vanilla
150 g neutral, unsweetened soy yogurt
1 dl soy or almond milk (can be sweetened or unsweetened)
90 ml of oil
Vegetable oil for the pan
Mix the dry ingredients together. Whisk together the yogurt, milk and oil until completely mixed. Pour the liquids over the dry ingredients, stir with a spatula until the flour is well mixed. The batter will be thick and clumpy, it can even look like the milk has “separated” if soy milk is used, but it does not matter. Heat the æbleskiver pan until it is hot, then turn down to the lowest setting. Brush the holes with vegetable oil, then spoon the mixture into the holes until each hole is completely filled. When the batter looks to have solidified, take a small spoon and loosen the edges. Use the spoon to then turn each ball, onto its side and then completely over. Bake until golden brown and a toothpick comes out dry when you test. Keep them warm in the oven while you make the second batch.
