Danish Apple Dumpling

Recipe for Buttermilk Apple Dumplings
Æbleskiver med kærnemælk
Serves 4

5 dl flour
½ tsp salt
2 tsp sugar
1 tsp cardamom
1 tsp baking soda
grated peel of 1 unsprayed lemon
3 eggs
approx. 4 dl buttermilk
oil or butter for baking

Mix flour, salt, sugar, cardamom, baking soda and grated lemon peel. Beat egg yolks and buttermilk together and stir in the flour. Leave the batter to rest for approx. 30 mins. Whip the egg whites and fold them into the batter, then pour it into a jug.

Heat up the apple dumpling pan and pour a little oil or melted butter into each hole. Three quarter fill each hole with batter. Turn over the dumplings when they begin to stiffen and rise at the edges. Before the dumplings are turned, a thin sliver of apple or a little apple sauce may be added to each. Turn the dumplings several time during the baking.

Test whether they are done by pricking them with a wooden or knitting needle. If any batter sticks to the pin, they are not yet done.

Keep the apple dumplings hot in the oven. Serve with jam and sugar.
