What else can you use an Aebleskiver pan for?

I like to eat Aebleskiver, but I do not like owning "unitaskers" and the Aebleskiver pan looks criminally guilty in this sense. Besides other "Aebleskiver-like" foods (I.E. takoyaki) does anyone have any ideas as to what else an Abelskiver pan is good for?

Korean green onion pancakes PAJEON. I sold a cast iron aebleskiver pan on ebay ages ago and the buyer was korean and bought it for his mother to make Pajeon. Recipe on Google!

FALAFEL baked or fried depending on the pan

I know I'm late to the party, but I have to add Rösti! I use my pan more often to make little individual serving Rösti balls than Aebleskiver. You can also fill the rösti balls with cheese and other savory garnishes as desired.

Baked oysters, shrimp, escargot....

The pan can be used to make a baked as opposed to a fried hush puppies. Heat the pan in a 425 oven with a few drops of oil in each cup. Add the cornmeal batter. When they have set, turn them just as one does with an aebelskiver. The cast iron will help create a nice outer shell with out all the fat added by frying.

I restored one recently and have been looking for alternative uses. Thanks for the ideas!

On a whim, I bought a book, Ebelskivers: Filled Pancakes and Other Mouthwatering Miniatures by Kevin Crafts. Now I have a book I've never used, as well as a pan that I don't use much.

Some of the things that look interesting--molten chocolate ebelskivers, ebelskiver popovers, miniature stove-top cheese souffles, two-cheese puffs with marinara (think oozing mossarella).

The Vietnamese use it to make savory rice cakes called banh khot. http://peachymangodelight.blogspot.com/2007/08/banh-khot.html

I love those! There is a Thai dessert with coconut milk and rice flour that uses similar pans.

One more thing to try... try a Liege Waffle recipe in this pan. Be sure to use the chunky sugar and it will carmelize . I think i'll go do that now!

I'm thinking that cake batter would work for cake pops, also muffin mix. On the savory side how about mixing up some eggs, bread, and milk with grated cheese and grease the wells...well and make mini breakfast stratas. Pinch off some Pillsbury dough from a can, add teaspoon of sauce and a sprinkle of cheese, top with a bit of dough again and cook pizza ball appetizers.

Okay...how about making little ice cream balls. With a lined crust of crushed of girl-scout thin mint cookies. Pipe in soft vanilla ice cream (with a touch a peppermint schnapps) topped with crushed orero cookies. Re-frozen in the 'half sphere' in the pan. Might want to line the pan with plastic wrap to make removing easy.

It's only good for ebelskiver. If you want multi function don't do it.
HalfPint March 26, 2012
I totally disagree. See my post below.
Shwillary February 22, 2021
did your post get deleted? I don't see your post and am looking for a few more ideas. Falafel was left off most commenters list which seems criminal. Curious what your uses are!

meatballs, candy, nice ice cubes for cocktails, baby soufles

maybe individually cooked eggs?
Sam1148 January 30, 2012
I'd go with the takoyaki. but I see you have that covered.

Maybe a crab cake type recipe would work in that?

Nancy July 5, 2017
In a recent thread on crab cakes, discussed using muffin pans for them. Could also use this pan.
And for any starchy side (sweet or savory) for which individual servings would be cute or useful...turkey stuffing at Thanksgiving, noodle kugel, rice pudding. And the individual crispy crusts are nice.
