When we were first married, Jim took his Grandma's recipe for authentic Danish Aebleskiver and re-worked it for the SCD. He served them to me for breakfast and I could hardly get enough! They are so light and fluffy, it's actually hard to tell the difference between the SCD recipe and the regular one. (So they tell me...)
Somewhere between two moves and three kids we lost the recipe, but I kept thinking about them. So when I saw him whipping them up again for Christmas breakfast I was so happy!
His Grandma Alma was a hospitable Danish lady who loved to cook and entertain. She and Grandpa Gunny were Danish through and through, and retired in Solvang, a darling little Danish town in California. They were friends with one of the town's bakery owners and it's said that he liked some of her recipes so much that he used them in his bakery!
Jim has fond memories of Grandma Alma with her Aebleskiver pans set up on the outside grill (because the recipe can create some haze in the house), flipping Aebleskiver as fast as her little arms could go, and he and his brother and sister gobbling them down and running back for more!
He says they are best broken in half with jam slathered on top of each bite. I had mine with honey this time, and they were great! With orange juice and fruit and SCD yogurt & honey, if you're hungry enough, you'll have a wonderful breakfast.
As a little Christmas gift to you, we wanted to share them! You'll find the new recipe, along with a jam recipe, here.
The pan is the important part, of course, and you can find a great cast iron version here.
This could be a fun Christmas tradition!
