Æbleskiver (Danish pronunciation: [ˈɛːb̥ləˌsɡ̊iːʊ̯ɐ]Danish meaning apple slices [singular: æbleskive]), also called "appleskives" are traditional Danish pancakes in a distinctive shape of a sphere. Somewhat similar in texture to European pancakes crossed with a popover or Yorkshire pudding, æbleskiver are solid like a pancake but light and fluffy like a popover. The English language spelling is usually aebleskiver or ebleskiver.

3 c. scalded milk
1/2 c. shortening
2 T. yeast
1 c. warm water
1 T. sugar
1 c. sugar
5 egg yolks
4 c. flour
5 egg whites

Scald milk. Add shortening and 1 c. sugar. Allow to cool. Dissolve yeast in 1 c. warm water with 1 T. sugar. When milk is lukewarm, combine with egg yolks, flour and yeast mixture. Let rise 3 times. Beat egg whites to stiff peaks. Fold in batter. Cook in hot Ebelskiver pan with melted butter (1/2 tsp) in each cup. Fill cups 3/4 full. Turn with toothpick or small pickle fork.

Serve hot with butter and syrup, powdered sugar, or butter and jam. Some people like them with applesauce.
