Have you heard of an Abelskever? If so, you know that you are in for something delightful and if you aren’t familiar with this tasty treat, you are in for a wonderful surprise!
An Abelskever is a Danish pancake, round and hollow inside and made in a special pan. Wikipedia’s definition is: Æbleskiver “Pancake Puffs”, also called “appleskives” are traditional pancakes in a distinctive shape of a sphere. The name literally means apple slices in Danish, although apples are not usually an ingredient in present-day versions. TIP: when searching for the pan, search by “Ebelskiver” as this is the most common English spelling.
Allie Quady, daughter of Quady Winery founders, Andrew and Laurel, selected this recipe when asked about a traditional Easter dish that she enjoys. Allie shared, “My mom got the recipe from her mom. Abelskevers are delicious filled with jam, butter or maple syrup.”
Laurel Quady has fond memories of this recipe as well. “Growing up, my Mom would make these for special occasions and frequently fill them with sliced apples, or other fruits and sometimes jam.”
