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 are often rolled in powdered sugar or filled with jam - prune is traditional. Click through for another photo of the finished product.
