Author Notes

Æbleskiver are Danish pancake balls that originally served with fruit compote. The method is quite difficult because it involves making meringue out of egg whites. In order to make it simpler, (read: so any 'lazy person' doesn't have any excuse for not doing it) this recipe imitates a "kue cubit" method (using only one bowl). So the result will resemble kue cubit in terms of sweetness and texture, and æbleskiver in softness.
As an additional information, my sisters always call them "poffertjes", like... all the time. Well they're not clearly wrong, since their flavor are quite similar.
Maybe, one day I will post about "Kue Cubit". —Putdar
