Default Aebleskivers

I see lots of mentions about these pans where people are asking about them or purchasing them, but never much of people actually using them. I have been playing around with my Griswold 962 Erie, PA and I pretty much have it figured out, but im wondering if anyone has experience with filling them? I tried adding filling half way through the cooking process, but the contents usually falls to the bottom instead of staying in the center of the aebleskiver. The last ones we ended up using a condiment bottle with jelly and injecting them. Anyone know how to fill them during the cooking process and keep the contents close to the center?? Heres some pics of the last batch I made for my wife to take to work to share with her co-workers, some filled with chocolate chips, apple sauce, and peach-rhubarb jelly.

I just use a spoon and put a little on the top after filling the cups.

I use mine a few times a year. Small spoon of filling when they are a bit cooked on the bottom and then small amount of batter to cover. Really is hit or miss. I have taken to not filling them at times and just placing filling on the side as I become tired of cleaning stuck on filling.

i feared the stuck on filling, but even the jelly, chocolate chips, and applesauce that leaked out didnt stick to my pan, must be i have good seasoning on it. i will try putting it right on top and then a little more dough on top and see what happens, if not i will just continue filling them with a condiment bottle like i did before.

are they technically supposed to be hollow inside or is the inside supposed to be textured with cooked batter more like a solid donut?

We dont fill ours. I was worried about the filling clean up as well. Really the only time I use our aebleskiver pan is on Christmas morning. The kids like them.

I make a ridiculous number of them. The trick is to have your filling ready to go and that your pan is not only well seasoned, but also buttered for each set of balls.

Jelly fillings i make ahead with a teeny disher scoop and freeze tiny balls of jelly to drop in. For chocolate, i use the larger chunk pieces.

After filling your cups about 3/4 full, drop in your filling and top with more batter and continue cooking. On the first partial turn, the filling, encapsulated in batter, moves with the batter.

On the third and final turn it is sealed in. Never had a leak. Wipes clean.

And here I thought I'd never have a use or need to add one of these pans to my collection.
You folks have effectively changed my mind.
Now I'm hungry for dessert!
