Poffertjes - a new treat

Wednesday, December 29, 2010

There is very little as exciting as discovering a new dessert. Yesterday while the rain kept us in doors, a friend arrived with her new Poffertjes iron and some batter ready to go.

Think little dumpling like pancakes covered with butter and sugar. They are just the right size to keep little hands happy. Poffetjes are a street food in Holland with stalls that can turn them out in the blink of an eye. Apparently, you can't buy just one, you need a whole bowl. I can see why.

  1. Yep those little puffy pancakes are just too yummy! I always either make them at home or take my friends visiting the country to have some at the local "poffertjes huizen" (or poffertjes houses) here in Holland. If you have the pan you can easily make them at home!
    Eet smakelijk!
