Combine milk and egg yolks. Sift together dry ingredients and add to milk/egg mixutre. Beat egg whites until stiff and fold into mixture.
Heat aebleskiver pan and put about 1 tsp oil in each cup of the pan.
when very hot, pour enough batter in each cup to almost fill it. Use knitting needle (or any pointed tool) to turn aebleskivers. Keep turning them until golden brown. Add shortening as needed for each new batch. Makes about 3 dozen. This recipe was a huge hit at my summer beach house -- we had it every Saturday! We top them with powdered sugar, fresh berries, and whipped cream.
Good luck finding the pans -- mine was a gift. I later found one more at a discount cooking store at the shore. However, this year I searched the shore and the Washington area and have yet to find another. The store managers of the discount places say they never know what they are going to get. Since my first one came from some catalogue (they don't even sell them anymore!) you might try calling a very high end cookware store and seeing if they can order you one.
The pans are cast-iron, so you'd need a distributor of cast-iron cookware. (Hmm -- you could also check the manufacturer of whatever is in the stores and call the company directly.) Let me know if you have any success.
By the way -- I started making these because my husband is Dutch, and Holland considers aebleskivers ~- which they call "Poffritches" -- a great delicacy!
