Get your hot Aebleskivers, a Danish delicacy that is a cross between a doughnut and pancake, Saturday, Nov. 3, 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. at Redeemer Lutheran Church, 620 Grove Ave., Waukegan.
The suggested donation for the breakfast is $6 and includes the Danish pancakes dusted with powdered sugar and served with syrup, jam or jelly, sausages and applesauce. Carry-outs are also available by calling (847) 336-4891.
“They are cooked in special pans called monk pans,” said Janet Krueger, a church member. Once the dough is cooked on one side, steel knitting needles are used to turn it.
“There will also be a country store featuring delicious home-made peanut brittle, other baked goods, crafts, throws and quilts for those cold days ahead,” said Krueger.
This year, the peanut brittle crew included Krueger of Waukegan, Shawn Wright of Beach Park, Carol Sittler of Waukegan and Joanne Leonaitis of Waukegan.
