Method

  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, cardamom and a pinch of salt. In another bowl, mix the buttermilk, egg yolks, orange zest and juice and butter. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and whisk to create a smooth batter.

  2. Whisk the egg whites until stiff peaks form, then add the caster sugar, whisk again, then fold into the batter.

  3. Butter an aebleskiver pan and set over a medium-high heat. Spoon 1 tbsp batter into each hole and allow to cook and set for about 1 min. Use a skewer or pointed palette knife to flip the pancakes around forty degrees, then add a bit more batter, allow to set and flip again, cooking and rotating until you have a golden puffed pancake ball. Alternatively, drop spoonfuls of batter into a buttered non-stick frying pan and cook for several mins on each side. Dust with icing sugar and serve hot.

If I don't have an aebleskiver pan what could I use?

This is quite a unique bit of kit but if you're not too worried about getting the shape just so then you can drop spoonfuls of batter into a buttered non-stick frying pan and cook for several mins on each side. Same great taste, slightly different shape!
