Aebleskiver n. Danish spherical pancake cooked in a special cast-iron pan, also sometimes called an aebleskiver.

Aebleskivers are little balls of golden pancake, cooked in these heavy cast-iron pans and flipped twice during cooking to develop their spherical shape. These photos come from the terrific weblog Northwest Sourdough, and these are actually a variety of sourdough aebleskivers. These are often rolled in powdered sugar or filled with jam - prune is traditional. Click through for another photo of the finished product.
