Poffertjes are the taste of the Netherlands in the form of small, fluffy pancakes baked from the mixture of wheat and buckwheat flour. They are baked in the best tradition of Dutch cuisine – in a special Mini Pancake Pan with hollows greased with melted butter. Ready-to-eat Poffertjes are fragrant and brown outside, with a soft and slightly viscous dough inside.
It is a tender “filling” that distinguishes Poffertjes from other types of Dutch pastry and makes them so famous and beloved far beyond the Netherlands. Traditionally, Poffertjes are served with powdered sugar and homemade butter. The sweet tooth will definitely fall in love with such an option. In case you want to skip the main course and start eating dessert as soon as possible, practical Dutchmen experimented with pouring Poffertjes with thick and substantial beetroot syrup. Such topping gives the dish not only nutritional value but also a greater national flavor. It is a real paradise for gourmets and not only for them! Despite the fact that Poffertjes meet the main criteria of Dutch cuisine – simple preparation and high energy value – it would be easy to turn this dessert into a light treat. Just add fresh berries and organic maple syrup. Bon Appetit!
