Aunt Eacy's Aebleskiver recipe

Also known as Scandinavian Pancakes

I suspect this recipe actually came from Eacy's husband, Christian Andersen, or his family, since he was the Scandinavian. A great Dane, actually.

You'll need an Aebleskiver pan for this recipe. It is a cast iron pan with seven indentations each about 1-1/2 inches in diameter and 1/2 inch deep. They are available in some cookware stores.

2 cups sweet cream
4 eggs
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. sugar
1/4 tsp. cardamom
1-1/4 cups flour

Beat egg yokes with sugar, salt. Add cream, flour, cardamom, & beaten egg white.

Cook in greased Aebleskiver pan. When bottom is light brown, turn over with a fork or a toothpick and cook the other side. For variety, add a piece of dried apricot or a drop of jam before turning.

You can substitute sour cream for the sweet cream but if you do, add 1/2 tsp. baking soda.
