This summer I purchased a Madeleine pan and an aebleskiver pan. After a quick online search I printed a couple of recipes for each.
A Madeleine pan is a flat pan with shell shaped molds for baking small cake like treats. It is a classic French treat for tea or dessert.
An aebleskiver pan is a pan that is used on the stove. It has seven depressions used to cook a type of a pancake ball. The aebleskiver is Danish. Scandinavian baking always appeals to be. The aebleskiver batter is poured into each depression and when the bottom is cooked it is turned partway over. While it is partway turned a small amount of filling can be added. My batch of batter made five pans and I was planning to make them all plain and dust them with powdered sugar but when I got to the last pan I decided to try adding a bit of jelly and they were good too.
Both pans worked well. The treats were yummy. I have a couple more versions of each recipe that I might try again but I am happy with the ones that I used.
