My dad and grandparents first had abelskivers, which are Danish pancake balls, on a ski trip in Colorado. Ever since, they have been a Taylor family favorite... though only an occasional treat because they are a bit tricky to make.

My dad whipped out the special pan yesterday morning and tested his skills. Just like riding a bike... might be a bit rusty at first but you never really forget how to do it...


First, fill the 7 dimples of the pan with 2TBS of batter each

The batter will start to bubble on the sides of the pan

Then give the abelskivers a 1/4 turn

Add a blueberry (or any other treat) to the center of abelskiver before turning all the way over

Allow the ball to fully form and cook for another few seconds before removing from the pan

I feel like those are a Chinese thing too. Remember we had something similar in Chinatown (NY) a few years back?

Uncle Dave, we took a unanimous vote and agreed that we'd like you to come to Jolli Lodge at 8am on July 6 and make them for us;-)

AB, yes they look similar but taste different. If memory serves, the Chinatown ones taste more like cake, where as abelskivers taste more like pancakes.

Steph-- I think abelskivers are Quinn sized treats. I'll see if I can get Uncle Doug to head your way:-)
