(This recipe was submitted by Catherina, one of our followers. She uses this recipe from the cookbook Cooking Danishby Stig Hansen) they take some practice to get right, but are totally worth it  :-) 
We eat them sprinkled in powdered sugar and dipped in Raspberry or strawberry jam. Yum!

(Makes 24 to 26)
1 3/4 cups bread flour (you can also use all purpose)
2 teaspoons instant dry yeast
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
1 cup 2% milk (or fat free)
2 eggs
Shortening (or vegetable oil) to grease your pan
Confectioners' sugar
1 - Combine the flour with the yeast, sugar and cardamom in a mixing bowl. Combine the butter and milk in a saucepan and heat to 70 to 80 degrees. Add to the flour mixture and mix well. Mix in the eggs. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place for 1 hour or until doubled in bulk.

2 - Heat an Æbleskiver pan over low to medium (300-degree) heat. Add a small amount of shortening on the tip of a knife to each cup. Spoon the dough into the cups filling four-fifths full.Cook until the bottoms begin to brown and push one-fourth of the doughnut up to begin to brown the top. Repeat the process, then turn the doughnut completely over to form a ball and cook until golden brown all over.
3 - Remove to a serving plate and sprinkle with confectioners' sugar. Serve with Raspberry Jam, applesauce and sugar to dip in.
