How to Make Aebleskiver like a Pro Portland Chef

It’s no secret that Portlanders, who wait at least 90 minutes to snag a seat at their favorite spot, love their brunch.

Broder Café is no exception. Since 2007, the Scandinavian eatery has perfected classic Nordic food with Pacific Northwest flair.  Their take on homemade Aebleskiver, also known as the “Danish Donut”, is two-inch spherical pancakes served with lemon curd and lingonberry jam, which we got to see Chef Nicholas Leach prepare from start to finish.

Try the Aebleskiver for yourself at Broder Café. Although they don’t take reservations, Chef Leach says the best time to visit the Café is early morning, midweek (otherwise you may be waiting up to one hour).
