  1. Stir the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves together in a large bowl, mix in the egg, milk, butter, and vanilla until just combined.

  2. Heat an aebleskiver pan over medium heat, prepare with cooking spray.

  3. Pour the batter into each cup to about 2/3 full. Allow the batter to cook in the bottom of the cup 3 to 4 minutes until golden brown. Don't forget which cup you placed the batter in first, it's all about rotation! Use a long skewer or knitting needle to lift one edge and give it a 1/4 turn. The uncooked batter will spill over into the cup, and cook. Continue lifting and turning the edges until the batter is fully cooked into a golden brown ball. Drain on paper towels.

Recipe Note

As a young girl, I constantly craved Saturdays and Sundays when my mother would prepare these small delicious pancakes. Now as a college student, I still look forward to Christmas time when our family is together and my mother and I prepare an overwhelming amount to feed family members! Definitely add in any kind of jam, peanut butter, honey, Nutella®, chocolate chips, fruit (diced apples, blueberries, etc.);the possibilities are endless and so delicious!
