While shopping in Goodwill (which competes with Target as the largest recipient of my retail expenditure) a few weeks ago I discovered, lo and behold!, and aebleskiver pan! It was brand new and cast iron, with it's signature seven half spheres, and absolutely calling my name. So of course, I bought it and immediately brought it home and started seasoning it (aka baking off a couple of different oils to coat the cast iron).
The recipe I'm using is a modification of this one, making it gluten free and scaled down to make nice sized portions for two people.
Step 2: In another bowl, mix your egg yolk, flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, and buttermilk. Once mixed, slowly add the melted butter to ensure you don't cook the egg!
Step 4: I find it easiest to transfer my batter into a liquid measuring cup with a spout for easy pouring. Heat up your aebleskiver pan over medium high heat with butter coating inside of each sphere (you can use a pastry brush if you have one, but I simply used a paper towel). Once the pan is nice and hot, pour enough batter into each pod to fill about 3/4 of each sphere. If you overfill, they will overflow a little, which just makes them a little harder to turn!
Happy breakfasting, Rachel
