It's time to finish up my posts on Solvang, but what would a trip to Solvang be without a breakfast of Aebleskivers? Of COURSE we had an aebleskiver breakfast before we left for our drive home.
Aebleskivers are traditional Danish pancakes that are round like a ball. They may be served with jam, syrup, powdered sugar, for breakfast, or even for dessert. They may be "stuffed" with fruit, jam, or cinnamon and sugar.
The Solvang Restaurant has a LARGE built-in pan that stays busy all day.
Here's a fresh batch ready to go.
I have fond memories of our college sorority house cook making aebleskivers occasionally for a special breakfast. I bought my mom a pan one year for Mother's Day, and still have the pan. I pull it out about once a year. I bought a bag of mix in Solvang. Just add milk and eggs, and heat the pan on your cooktop. Use a knitting needle or a wooden skewer to flip them in the pan.
We used some of my mixed berry jam with some, and persimmon preserves with the other half.
I think we're good now for another year!
