A sweet version of the south Indian Kuzhi Paniyaram, Aebleskivers are a Danish treat that are made with flour, sugar, eggs, buttermilk and with or without yeast, with a filling inside.
Wikipedia states "Aebleskivers were traditionally cooked with bits of apple or applesauce inside, but these ingredients are very rarely included in modern Danish forms of the dish. Aebleskiver are not sweet themselves, but are traditionally served dipped in raspberry, strawberry, black currant or blackberry jam and sprinkled with powdered sugar".
These strawberry coconut aebleskivers, made using our Chocolate Coconut Pancake Mix, in a kuzhi paniyaram pan, are filled with strawberry preserves. The liquid from the preserve is used as a syrup for the dish.
1 Pack of The Wildly Natural Chocolate Coconut Pancake Mix 2 cups (500ml) milk 1/4 cup ghee or melted butter or coconut oil. 1/2 jar strawberry preserves or jam. Powdered sugar to dust on top. (Strawberry preserves contain whole strawberries preserved in sugar syrup. Use the strawberries to stuff the pancakes, and use the liquid as syrup. If using jam, use the thick jam for stuffing, and thin out some jam with water to be used as syrup)
Directions: Prepare the pancake batter using the instructions on the back of the pack. Heat the paniyaram pan on the stove. Use ghee or melted butter to oil the pan, pour a spoon or two of the batter on each round, filling upto 3/4ths. Place a strawberry on each round. It will sink into the batter. Leave for a few minutes until it is ready to turn. Flip and cook on the other side.
Dust with powdered sugar and serve with the syrup.
Makes for an awesome after-school snack for children. This could also be served as a dessert.
