“It’s a ball!” “It’s a CAKE!” It’s, it’s.. “Æbleskiver“!? Æbleskiver, or “Pancake Puffs” are a traditional Danish-style sphere-shaped pancake. Pronounced “aye-bill-ski-ver”, the name literally translates to apple slices in Danish. Funny enough: apples aren’t actually used in this dish at all! Cooked on a stove-top pan with half-spherical molds, Æbleskiver are nowadays made in cast iron (which allows for good heat retention).
