At one of the Christmas function I went to, a friend of a friend turned up with some Danish Christmas treats. These were really yummy so I begged the recipe from her! Just don’t ask me to pronounce the name in Danish – she had to write it out for me!
Note it needs a special cast iron pan (like a frying pan but with circles in it like a patty cake tray) – I haven’t figured out what alternatives would work yet.
510 gram plain flour
1 Tablespoon of white sugar
0.5 teaspoon of salt
2 teaspoons of baking powder
2 cups of buttermilk
Combine the dry ingredients then add the eggs and buttermilk.
Heat the pan then add a little oil into each circle. Put enough dough in each hole to fill it about 3 quarters of the way to the top.
Once it starts to bubble around the edges, turn them over with a fork or something think like a knitting needle (apparently the traditional tool!).
Sprinkle with icing sugar and serve – if you can bear to give any away! They’re nice with jam, too.
** I was told you can put in slices of apple or apple sauce or blobs of jam when turning them during cooking. So many variations to try! Once I find a pan anyway.
