    About this recipe: These pancakes resemble puffy doughnuts and are incredibly light and fluffy. They are traditionally eaten around Christmastime, but you can enjoy them whenever you want. Enjoy with syrup, jam or icing sugar.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 30 

    • 2 egg whites
    • 250g plain flour
    • 2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 1 tablespoon caster sugar
    • 1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 2 egg yolks
    • 60g butter, melted
    • 475ml buttermilk
    • 250ml vegetable oil for frying

    Method
    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. In a clean bowl, beat the egg whites with an electric mixer until they can hold a stiff peak. Set aside.
    2. Mix together the flour, baking powder, salt, bicarbonate of soda, sugar, egg yolks, melted butter and buttermilk and beat until smooth. Gently fold in the egg whites.
    3. 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.

    Altered ingredient amounts. For my pan, I found I needed a little less oil in each section , and a little less batter, just a minor teak to suit my pan. - 13 Mar 2011
