Scandinavian Dessert Waffles by: TOM NEITZEL      

This is really a dessert waffle.  It is delicate, crisp and wonderful warm with lingonberry jam.  This is mainly heavy cream and butter held together with a little flour.  The waffle iron to use has 5 small heart shapes.

Several names for this include:

Flötevafler (Norwegian)
Frasvåfflor (Swedish)
Flødevafler (Danish)
Rapeat vvohvelit (Finnish)

1 3/4 C heavy cream
1 1/2 C cake flour
1/2 C ice water
1 T sugar
1/2 t salt
3 T melted butter

Beat the cream until stiff.  Sift in flour, add ice water, sugar and salt.  Stir until well blended.  Pour in melted butter.

Heat waffle iron.  Brush generously with butter.  Pour in batter by tablespoonfuls and bake until golden brown.  Place waffles on rack to keep crisp.  Serve immediately

Makes about 8 - 5 section waffles.

GRANNY'S UPSIDE DOWN CAKE cake by: Joseph Doucet
Here's one of my Grandmothers recipe:  

Topping
   
1 stick of butter  
1 C of brown sugar  
1 can of sliced pineapples    
1 C of pecan halves    
maraschino cherries    

Cake mix
 
1/2 C of butter    
1 C of sugar      
2 eggs beaten      
1 teaspoon of vanilla    
2 C of cake flour    
3 t of baking powder  
1/2 t of salt            
3/4 C of the juice from the pineapples    

Put a stick of butter in a #9 skillet and stick in the oven to heat up and melt butter when this is done pat the brown sugar over melted butter then put the pecan halves in and then place the pineapple slices in the skillet add the cherries then to make cake batter you cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy add eggs and vanilla  then sift together dry ingredients add pineapple juice and dry ingredients to the butter and sugar mixture pour batter into skillet and spread evenly bake at 350 for 55 minutes or until done let cool for 5 or 10 minutes before inverting it to a plate let cool 5 more minutes and dig in.    

If you don't like cooking from scratch you can just use a yellow cake mix from the box and where it calls for water just use the same amount of pineapple juice instead of water.   Boy did this get jumbled up

AEBLESKIVERS

1 t baking powder

----Preparation--(1) beat egg yolks until light (2) add sugar, salt and buttermilk, mix well--(3) sift flour, soda and baking powder, add to the egg mixture--(4) beat egg whites until stiff--(5) fold into batter--(6) place a small amount of shortening in each cup of a hot aebleskiver pan, and 2/3 full with batter--(7) if desired, you can place a small amount of apple sauce, jam or fruit filling in the center--(8) add small amount of batter over the filling or a small piece of apple or other fruit can be worked into the batter--(9) cook over medium heat until bubbly, turn carefully with spoon or fork and cook the other side-(10) when you take the aebleskiver out of the pan, sprinkle with powdered sugar--(11) serve warm ---- Comments start turning early to form into a ball; a knitting needle or bamboo skewer can be used to turn. The skewer can also be used to test for doneness if it comes out clean.


Ableskivers #2 by: C. B. Williams
I make these much simpler than the above recipe.

1 1/2 C self rising flour
1 egg
1 T sugar
pinch salt
1 t baking powder
Butter milk, about 1 C (enough to make a thin batter)
Heat  ableskiver pan and put about 1/4 t butter in each cup, and fill each cup almost full with batter. When batter starts to form bubbles and using a bamboo skewer (or similar tool)  turn the 'skivers' about half way, as they cook more finish the turn.
