From Dorothy McNett's recipes at Little pancake balls made in a special pan, usually cast iron, with 6-7 depressions in the pan. Original recipes have apples or applesauce in them. This one is plain, easy to make, and very delicious with coffee or tea.

2 eggs
2 cups buttermilk
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 cup melted unsalted butter

vegetable oil for frying

Separate the eggs and beat whites until stiff but not dry. Set aside. In another bowl, combine egg yolks, buttermilk, flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda, sugar, and butter. Beat until smooth, and then fold in the egg whites. Heat an aebleskiver pan over medium heat and put about 1 teaspoon oil into each depression. Pour about 2 tablespoons of the batter into each cup, and as soon as they get bubbly around the edges, turn quickly using a knitting needle or crochet hook or other such needle-like instrument so as not to puncture the balls. Continue cooking, turning the ball to keep it from burning. Serve with raspberry jam or maple syrup and powdered sugar.
