Huu! Aeble what? If you have a Lodge catalog, you may of seen this in it and said, Aebleskiver . What do you do with that. Its a Danish dish, much like a Fritter. You cut bananas about 1/2" to 3/4" thick. Make a waffle batter. You can make it a little sweet. Put batter in each hole about 3/4 of the way up, then place a peace of the banana in it. Let if cook until the bottom is brown and crisp. Roll or turn it in the pan to crisp the other side. It forms a ball. Dust it with powdered sugar, or just dip it in syrup. Thats the only way I have had them, but you can use any other fruit you like. Oh ya! over what kind of fire. On your camp stove, or use a lid stand and about 20 charcoals and place the pan on the lid stand. Try this at home, and then WOW, your friends at camp next spring.

2 egg whites
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking pwder
1 tbsp. white sugar
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2 egg yolks
4 tbsp. butter, melted
2 cups buttermilk
vegetable oil for frying

1. Beat the egg whites in a bowl until they hold stiff peaks
2. Mix together all the other ingredients in another bowl until smooth, then gently fold in the egg whites.
3. Heat the pan over medium/medium-low heat and pour about 1 tbsp. of oil into each cup in the pan (the oil should be hot, but not smoking). Pour about 2 tbsp. of the batter into each cup and cook until they looked cooked around the edges (the middle will not be done yet). Use a fork to flip them over and continue cooking until they are done-- you may need to keep flipping them so they don't burn.
Serve them with powdered sugar, jam, honey, or whatever else you like.
