This was the most emotional cooking video I have ever made. It was made as a tribute to my Mother, aka "Farmor" (which means Father's Mom in Danish) the day after she passed away.
We decided to make her favorite Danish breakfast called Aebleskiver. My Mom actually purchased the special Aebleskiver pan we used in this video for us as a Christmas present the month before, knowing we have been wanting one.
My daughter Ava Grace decided to write a special note for Farmor telling her that she missed her and loved her. She wanted to make sure Farmor would receive it in heaven, so she asked us to purchase some balloons so we could send the note and one Aebleskiver up to heaven. It was her way of dealing with the grief. And an excellent idea it was!
So let me show you how to make a delicious Danish desert and watch the special tribute my daughter made for Farmor.
2 cups buttermilk
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 cup melted butter
1 teaspoon Cardamon
butter for pan
Separate the eggs and beat whites until soft peaks form, and set aside.
In another bowl, combine egg yolks and buttermilk and mix together.
Next add the flour, melted butter, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cardamom and sugar and blend well. Fold in the egg whites using a spatula.
Heat an Aebleskiver pan over medium heat, brush each cup with melted butter. Pour about 2 tablespoons of batter into each cup, and, when bubbly around the edges, turn with a long wooden skewer or toothpick, this takes less than 2 minutes. Continue cooking on the other side until golden.
Serve immediately, sprinkled with powdered sugar, and some Jam.
