Poffertjes.

Poffertjes are a typical Dutch recipe but I thought I would give it a try. After all, the Netherlands aren't that far away. I don't know how to translate 'poffertjes' that's just how it's called here but in fact these are mini pancakes. They taste a little different than pancakes but I think these are better. You would normally use a special pan to bake these but since I'm not Dutch, I don't have this just lying around and so I experimented with the cakepop machine I got earlier this year. The mini pancakes were a bit smaller than the normal size but the taste was soooo good! You can find the recipe below:

Ingredients:

  • 2 eggs
  • 60 g butter (at room temperature)
  • 125 g granulated sugar
  • 185 g self-rising flour
  • 2 dl milk
  • a pinch of salt
  • powdered sugar

Preparation:

  1. Mix the butter and the sugar until you got a smooth mixture.
  2. Whisk in the eggs one by one.
  3. Add the flour, alternating with the milk, to the mixture. Add the salt.
  4. Heat up your pan, or in my case the cakepop machine.
  5. Put a little bit of batter in each hole, don't fill it too much because the batter will rise a bit.
  6. When the top of the mini pancake starts to dry, turn it around and let the other side bake.
  7. When all your mini pancakes are baked, put them on a plate and sprinkle with the powdered sugar.
