2 egg whites1/2 tsp salt
2 C flour2 egg yolks
2 tsp baking powder4 T butter, melted
1 T sugar2 C buttermilk
1/2 tsp baking sodebutter for frying
1.  In a clean glass or metal bowl, beat the egg whites with an electric mixer until they can hold a stiff peak.  Set aside.
2.  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.
3.  Put about 1 tablespoon 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.  We used a small skewer intended for kabobs.)  Continue cooking, turning the ball to keep it from burning.

Before turning the little bundles of deliciousness, add a bit of jam, a slice of apple or any other fruit you have on hand.  Blueberries work well.

To eat, dip them in jam, powdered sugar or, my favorite, cut them in half and drizzle a little bit of syrup on them.  Trust me you do NOT need to add any extra butter.

We loved these.  Thanks to Candleman who bought the pan and made them the first time.  I'll try to get pictures next time.
