Christmas Morning Aebleskiver

My entire life every Christmas morning my Dad has made Aebleskivers for anyone and everyone who wants to come.  I remember Christmas morning my house being filled with people from my church and all of our neighbors coming to have breakfast.  I love it on Christmas, but I have started making them every Easter for my family as well.  I wanted to share this delicious recipe for you in case you want something delicious and fun for Easter morning.

2 Egg Whites 
2 C. All purpose flour
2 tsp. Baking Powder
1 T. White Sugar
1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
1/2 tsp. Salt
2 Egg Yolks
4 T. Butter Melted
2 C. Buttermilk
1 Cube of butter cut into little chunks

In a bowl, beat the egg whites with an electric mixer until they can hold a stiff peak. Set aside.   

Mix together the flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda, sugar, egg yolks, melted butter and buttermilk at one time and beat until smooth. Gently fold in the egg whites last. 

Put about 1tablespoon of butter in the bottom of each aebleskiver pan cup and heat until hot. Pour in about 2 tablespoons of the batter into each cup. As soon as they get bubbly around the edge, turn them quickly (Danish cooks use a long knitting needle, but a fork will work). Continue cooking, turning the ball to keep it from burning.
