In a clean bowl, beat the egg whites with an electric mixer until they can hold a stiff peak. Set aside.

Place 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in the bottom of each aebleskiver pan hole and heat until hot. Pour in about 2 tablespoons of the batter into each hole. As soon as they get bubbly around the edge, turn them quickly with a fork. Continue cooking, turning the ball to keep it from burning.
