Holy cow ladies and gents, do I have a giveaway for you!
I ran into this sweet website while doing my usual internet surfing, and become instantly intrigued with this company called Aunt Else’s Aebleskiver.
What is Æbleskiver you ask? (I asked myself that, and had to read on!)
Æbleskiver — pronounced EB-el-sku-wyr, a Danish word meaning apple slice.
A traditional Danish spherical pastry, somewhat similar in taste and texture to an American pancake, but light and fluffy like a popover.
Æbleskiver are cooked on the stove top by baking them in a special æbleskiver pan.
Æbleskiver are traditionally filled with a slice of apple, but can be made to suit a range of tastes from sweet to savory, and are often topped with syrup, jam or applesauce.
Aunt Else’s Æbleskiver Mix is made with organic, Minnesota grown wheat & organic buttermilk from Wisconsin. Add eggs & water and you’re ready to start cooking!
Aunt Else’s offers our own high quality, locally made 9-hole cast iron æbleskiver pan that comes with a lifetime manufacturer’s warranty.
After contacting the company because I wanted to try these so bad, they agreed to do a review and giveaway!! I was so excited for it to get here, and it arrived rather quickly!
First we had to ‘season’ the cast iron pan. The instructions are as follows:
You must season your Aunt Else’s 9-hole Cast Iron Æbleskiver before using it for the first time. Here’s how to season it:
1) Rinse pan with hot, soapy water, and immediately dry thoroughly.
2) Apply a thin, even coating of vegetable oil to the entire pan (inside & out).
3) Place pan upside down on the top rack of a 400 degree oven. Place some aluminum foil on the bottom rack of the oven to catch any drips.
4) Bake pan for at least one hour. After the hour, turn the oven off and let the pan cool in the oven.
5) Store the pan uncovered, in a dry place when cooled.
After doing so, hubby and I could not wait to try out the mix that was included with this awesome high-quality Cast Iron Pan!
It was easy to mix, as per the directions on the mix! We made them and omg they are 2-die-4!!!!! So delicious and extremely appetizing beyond words!
Our first batch stuck a little bit, (later we read that this usually happens and they suggest that heating the pan with oil in each well over low to medium heat for 10–15 minutes ensures the the pan is nice & hot before baking your first batch helps a lot.)
After making them I simply sprinkled them with Powdered sugar, and wow they are Killer!! Just wait until you try them for yourself! Both hubby and I ate the entire batch!!
You can Serve hot with syrup, jam, or applesauce! They also suggest Adding small pieces of apple, berry, sausage, chocolate or other favorite filling in the middle of each batter-filled well — I am going to try this on our second batch for sure! The possiblities are relatively endless, I am sure that you could try different variations of other fillings too? I told hubby they would no doubt be excellent with some sort of cherry and cream cheese filling!!
Guess what folks? Yes, you got it! The extremely kind & generous folks from Aunt Else’s Aebleskiver want to offer one lucky CoolCanucks reader the chance to win one of these SWEET cast iron pans + Aunt Else’s Aebleskiver Mix! You will be just as blown away as both hubby & I were after tasting these!
