This Danish delicacy is served in many Danish-American homes, including mine. A special pan is needed; even though new pans are available, many cooks favor the old cast-iron pans, which are handed down from generation to generation. You can get them at many scandanavian specialty stores, and can also order them online. In Denmark, aebleskiver is served as a dessert with sugar or marmelade. On the island of Aero, a small sliver of prune is put in the middle as they are cooked. There are many different recipes, and this one is my family's favorite. We put a little jam, preferably lingonberry preserves, in the middle of our aebleskivers as they are cooking, before turning them, and we eat them with sweetened cinamon-sugar applesauce. You will need a little practice in turning these doughnut-like treats. A fork works, but some practiced "turners" use a knitting needle, preferably wooden, or a similar device such as an ice pick. Even a toothpick will do.
