Aebelskivers are a traditional Danish dish, sort of like donut holes but much better.  You have to have a special pan to make them:
John and I got one of these pans for our wedding and this dish has become a favorite in our home.  John requested them as part of his Father's Day feast.  

{What you need}
2 egg whites
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 1 cup vegetable oil for frying
cinnamon and sugar, powdered sugar, or desired toppings

In a glass or metal bowl, beat the egg whites until they hold a firm peak.  Set aside
In a separate bowl, combine flour, powder, sugar, soda, salt, egg yolks, butter, and butter milk, all at once, and blend until smooth.  Gently fold in the egg whites last.

Put about 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in the bottom of each aebleskiver pan cup and heat until hot. Pour in about 2 tablespoons of the batter into each cup. As soon as they get bubbly around the edge, turn them quickly (Danish cooks use a long knitting needle, but a fork will work). Continue cooking, turning the ball to keep it from burning.
