A cooking utensil designed specifically for making the Danish pancake ball known as an aebleskiver, ebleskiver or apple dumpling. This type of pancake has a round ball-like shape rather than a flattened plate-like shape, similar to a crepe or a North American pancake. The aebleskiver is made with a batter that is often mixed with fruit or other tasty ingredients. The batter is poured into the individual round cup indentations molded like a ball cut in half, so they become a ball shape overall once the batter is poured and allowed to puff up. The bottom half of the pancake bakes and when it becomes golden brown, it is rolled over manually to bake the other side. Aebleskivers are most often served for breakfast or brunch, but they can also be filled with a savory filling and be served as an appetizer or main dish. The pan for aebleskivers is also referred to as a Munk pan or a Danish cake pan.
