Aebleskiver is a Danish dessert, like doughnut holes, but sweeter and much better. It's traditionally served with glogg during the Advent and cooked in a cast iron pan that resembles an egg poacher. Serve hot with syrup, jam, or powdered sugar.

  • Mix together buttermilk, flour, egg yolks, melted butter, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl; beat until smooth. Gently fold in egg whites.

  • Heat an aebleskiver pan over medium heat. Put about 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in the bottom of each cup.

  • Pour about 2 tablespoons batter into each prepared cup. As soon as bubbles appear around the edges, 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.
