Aebelskiver – Danish Filled Doughnuts

4 Dec

Domata Gluten Free Aebelskiver


Make these favorite treats of Denmark in your home.  Serve for breakfast, desserts, or anytime.  Fill with fruit, jam, chocolate, or Nutella


¾ cup Domata Recipe Ready Flour

3 Tablespoons sugar

½ teaspoon baking soda

½ teaspoon cinnamon

1/8 – 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

Pinch sea salt

½ cup buttermilk

1 egg

Filling of your choice (fruit, jam, Nutella)

Powdered sugar



Begin by whisking together the flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and a pinch of sea salt.  In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg and buttermilk.  Add the wet ingredients to the dry mixture and stir until just combined.  The mixture should be sticky, but not runny.

Heat your Aebelskiver pan over medium-low heat and spray lightly with cooking spray.  Spoon about 1 tablespoon of the batter into each hole in the pan.  Add about a teaspoon of filling in the center, and then top with just enough additional batter to cover the filling (about 1 teaspoon).  Cook for a few minutes and then use wooden skewers to flip the Aebelskivers and cook on the other side for an additional minute or two.

Remove the Aebelskivers from the pan and roll in powdered sugar while they are still hot.  Enjoy while still warm.

      I use a Nordic Ware pan. If you are unable to find one in your local area, Aebelskiver pans are available online at

    Could you make these as donuts in an electric donut maker?

      I don’t see why not. Or, you may use your regular donut recipe and substitute Domata Recipe Ready flour – cup for cup.
