I was lucky to get a hold of this special cast iron pan a couple of years ago. I actually was on a hunt for this kind of pan for a long time, so i can make takoyaki w/c i have made, click HERE for the recipe. I bought this pan from the Asian store.

Little did i know that this pan could also be used for something else aside from the Japanese Takoyaki. Thanks to  "AS SEEN ON TV" and QVC..i saw this pan used for Aebleskiver . What a bargain!!! i bought mine for $8 as opposed to $25 and $40.

Since then i've been using this pan for both, but more for the aebleskiver. I have two kinds of recipe for my aebleskiver, both from scratch, literally made the pancake batter from scratch and the other one, i scratch a box of buttermilk pancake mix box ha!ha!ha! I tend to do the box lately especially when i'm busy and i have the cravings fixed fast!

If you decide to use the pre-mix just follow the box instructions to make the batter and continue to step 3. 4, 5, 6.

Here's my recipe from scratch:

Aebleskiver Pancakes balls:

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. salt
2 Tbs. granulated sugar
4 eggs, separated
2 cups buttermilk
1 tsp vanilla
4 Tbs. (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted, plus more for cooking.

1. Beat egg whites until stiff but not dry, and set aside.

2. In a bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, buttermilk, vanilla and butter. In another bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Combine the yolk mixture into the flour mixture and whisk until well blended. The batter will be a little lumpy. Gently fold in the egg whites in two additions.

3. Heat your aebleskiver pan over medium heat and brush each well with melted butter. Pour batter enough to cover and fill well to the top. Add ½ teaspoon of dulce de leche or peanut butter.

4. Cook for at least 2 minutes or until the edges of each “balls” begin to brown and pull away from the sides.

5. Lightly run a skewer around the edge of each ball to loosen, and then gingerly and quickly flip each balls over making sure all the batter gets in to the holes and you’ll end up w/ a pancake ball. Continue cooking until golden brown,

6. Remove the aebleskiver to a plate, I like mine drizzled with maple syrup or chocolate syrup. You can also dust them w/ powdered sugar.
