The direct translation is Apple Slices, but these round cake-like things are more like soft doughnut-holes. 300 years ago they were apple slices dipped in whisked egg and flour and baked in a skillet, but today you of course have a special skillet and have to get the feel of how and when to turn the æbleskiver with a fork or knitting-pin or any other preferred tool. Some add a small piece of apple or some jam before turning, most enjoy them warm dipping them in sugar and jam.
Melt butter and pour in milk. Dissolve yeast in mixture.
Add the rest of the ingredients. Mix well and let rise for 30 minutes.
Bake in special Æbleskive pan or in electrical doughnut-hole pan.
Serve hot or cool, as preferred, or freeze.
When ready to serve from freezer, heat in 400F oven.
Serve with sugar or icing sugar and jam.

Hello—and welcome to the Danish Lutheran Church!
I’m the pastor of this congregation
and together with all the people who volunteer to keep this church going
I would like to invite you to get to know us.
We started out as an immigrant church almost 70 years ago,
and now we are a church with Scandinavian roots in a Canadian setting.
We still speak Danish at some of our services and functions,
but as many of our members don’t speak Danish,
most functions are in English.
You may wonder what’s so specific about the Danish heritage
in respect to being Christian.
Mostly, it is a matter of traditions and the way we do things
at the service and the social functions.
But also, the theology has a special angle,
mostly because of some particular church reformists and hymn writers
we have had during the Danish church history.
Newcomers to our church may find that our rituals and traditions
are close to the original reformatory roots,
but they also have a Viking ring to them!
We invite you to drop by our church and experience our beautiful church room
and take part in our worship and fellowship.
