Simple Aldi Recipes: Danish Ableskiver: Cheap Recipes Linky

I love sharing  simple aldi recipes with all of you, but today's simple Aldi recipe, cannot be made solely by the use of Aldi ingredients. However, my Danish aebleskiver recipe surely is made a lot cheaper by using the majority of the baking ingredients from Aldi. My kids love it when I drag out the old aebleskiver pan, which is something that only happens on very special occasions, or if I find a great price on buttermilk. 

Aldi does not have buttermilk, at least my South Florida Aldi does not, and the price is usually more than $2 for a quart a my local Publix store, so it is not something we have in our fridge very often. I recently discovered that by combining coupons with a sale, I could get a quart of buttermilk for $0.50, and little things like that will bring lots of excitement in my house.

The buttermilk sat in the back of my fridge for a while, before I finally got the aebleskiver pan out, and when I did my boys were eager to help out. 

Danish Aebleskiver Recipe
2 cups buttermilk
7 eggs
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp. salt

2 tbsp. of melted butter for frying. 

  • Divide the egg whites from the egg yolk.
  • In a large bowl mix the egg yolk with the buttermilk, flour, baking soda, sugar and salt. Mix until well-blended and refrigerate for 1/2 hour.
  • While the mixture is resting in the fridge, whisk the egg whites until stiffened.
  • When the egg whites are stiffened, carefully stir them into the dough with a dough scraper.
  • Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a small pot, add a drop to each room in the ableskive pan. Fill up the aebleskive pan with dough, and wait until the bottom is brown. When it is brown, tip the aebleskiver over with a wooden stick or knitting stick. Cook over medium heat. 

Serve with powdered sugar, sugar and jam of your choice. At my house we prefer strawberry jam with our aebleskiver.  

Although this week's simple Aldi recipe was not purely made of Aldi ingredients, I did use several Aldi baking products to make the Danish Aebleskiver, which in turn made it quite a cheap recipe.

From Aldi I used:
Aldi Baking Soda
Aldi Salt

1 quart Buttermilk $0.50 @ Publix

I am very sad to see the price increases on the baking goods at Aldi, and I sure hope that they will soon go down again.

I would love to see your frugal recipes, you can link them up below in the Cheap Recipes Linky.

  4. I need an aebleskiver pan! I tried making them without one and it was a big fail!

  5. Yes, Condo Blues. Making them without it turns into a disaster:) 10 years ago I could not find a pan anywhere, now it is as easy as a click on Amazon, and they come at many different prize levels as well. I actually imported mine from Denmark after I got married over there:)

  6. I just got one at Target 70% off for $5.98!!! I remembered this post and had to have it! They had a few on a clearance shelf, so maybe it's an item they are no longer selling, and clearancing out at other targets as well??? So excited to try this out!!! Perfect for the "cold front" (48*) we're having here in Orlando! :)

  7. Anonymous, what a fabulous find! You are so right they are perfect to make on cold days....I'll have to look for them at my Target. I am so not looking forward to this cold front...part of it made it's way to South Florida this morning...

    Eejoy your aebleskiver!
