Cooking up aebelskivers & liver sausage
I was remiss! I should have provided the recipe for Aebleskivers. Here’s the one I used. I found it on allrecipes.com. I only made half a recipe, which was plenty for two of us.
For those of you who are especially adventuresome, I’ve also included my mom’s recipe for liver sausage.
- 2 egg whites
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 tablespoon white sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 egg yolks
- 4 tablespoons butter, melted
- 2 cups buttermilk
- melted butter for frying
- In a clean glass or metal bowl, beat the egg whites with an electric mixer until they can hold a stiff peak. Set aside.
- Mix together the flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda, sugar, egg yolks, melted butter and buttermilk at one time and beat until smooth. Gently fold in the egg whites last.
- Brush melted butter in the bottom of each aebleskiver pan cup and heat until hot. Pour in about 2 tablespoons of the batter into each cup. As soon as they get bubbly around the edge, turn them quickly (Danish cooks use a long knitting needle, but a fork will work). Continue cooking, turning the ball to keep it from burning.
