Implements (object genre)
Also called an Ebelskivers pan, this aebelkskiver pan was made by Griswold, No. 32. These pans, at least in name, are Scandinavian in origin. Made of cast iron, these round pans have a short handle with cup-like indentations. Ebelskivers are apple pancake balls made with apple slivers and batter. They are also called muffin molds, egg poachers, apple pancake pans, Danish cake pans and Olie koeck pans. To quote food historian William Woys Weavers, "Several nineteenth century foundries in this country sold an implement they called an olie-koeck pan. Many signed examples bear the names of J.M. Davidson & Shear, Packard & Company of Albany, or Griswold of Erie, Pennsylvania" (The Christmas Cook, Harper Perennial, 1990, page 69).
