Pancake Balls



Set an ableskiver pan over low heat.

Sift together and set aside:

Make a well in center of dry ingredients. Add liquid mixture all at one time, stirring until well blended.

Beat until rounded peaks are formed: 3 egg whites. Gently spread batter over egg whites and fold together.

Test ableskiver pan by dropping on it a few drops of cold water; if drops dance around in small beads, temperature is right. Grease well with butter (About half tsp. per well).

Pour batter into wells, filling about one half full. With a fork turn ableskivers frequently to brown evenly. Do not pierce.

Ableskivers are done when a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Serve immediately sprinkled with powdered sugar. If desired, accompany with a tart jam.

About 4 dozen balls.

Apple Pancake Balls (Ableskiver II)

Follow above recipe. Rinse, pare and dice 2 medium-sized apples. Sprinkle about 1 teaspoon of the diced apples over batter in each well.
