Traditional Danish popovers, the English spelling is usually ableskiver or ebleskiver. They get their name from their spherical shape - "round like apples." Traditionally they are served before Christmas and filled with a half-tsp of applesauce. Other jams, veggies, sausages and cheese can also be used as filling. Whatever you like! This recipe has been modified from one my great-grandmother used. You'll need a special aebleskiver pan to cook these.



  • 3 large Eggs, seperated
  • 1 cup Milk, or Half and Half

Step 1

Separate the egg yolks and whites. In a small bowl, beat the yolks until smooth. Mix in the milk and set aside.

Step 2

In a large bowl, beat the egg whites with a hand mixer until stiff peaks form. Set aside.


  • 1 cup All-Purpose Flour
  • 3 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 14 teaspoon Salt

Step 3

In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add the egg yolk mixture and thoroughly mix together. Fold in the egg whites.


  • Butter, as needed

Step 4

Heat an aebleskiver pan over medium heat and melt 1/4 teaspoon butter in each well. Pour 1 to 2 tablespoons batter into each well. Begin turning over gradually using a teaspoon or skewer, as soon as the aelbelskivers begin to brown. Keep turning until nicley browned and cooked on all sides (you may not needs to turn them over more than once or twice).


  • Powdered Sugar, as needed for garnish

Step 5

Remove from the pan and serve hot, sprinkled with powdered sugar. They are also good with jam or syrup.
