Difficulty: Difficult - for experienced cooks
â€¢ 3 eggs, separated
â€¢ 2 c. flour
â€¢ 2 T. sugar
â€¢ 1 tsp. soda
â€¢ 1 tsp. baking powder
â€¢ 2 c. buttermilk
Beat egg yolks until light and lemon colored. Add sugar, salt, and buttermilk; mix well. Sift flour, soda, and baking powder; add to egg mixture. Beat egg whites until stiff. Fold into batter. Place a small amount of shortening in each cup of the æbleskiver pan and fill 2/3 full with batter. Cook over medium heat until bubbly; turn carefully with fork and finish baking on other side. Turn each ebleskiver several times during baking to ensure thorough baking. If desired, a very thin slice of raw apple can be pressed into batter in each cup before turning.
Serve with butter and syrup, jam, brown sugar, or sprinkle with powdered sugar.
