Poffertjes (Dutch Mini Pancakes)

Poffertjes (Dutch Mini Pancakes)

I did not realize till most recently that “poffertjes” is a typical Dutch dish. You can’t find the poffertjes pan here in the USA.  I did find something similar like a poffertjes pan in my local China shop  this takoyaki pan, which is a good substitute for a poffertjes pan.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cups of flour
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tbsp yeast
  • 1 egg
  • butter
  • white powder sugar

Instructions

  1. Warm the milk till it’s about 110F add the yeast and the sugar. Wait till the milk mix is bubbly.
  2. Add the salt and an egg to the flour. When the milk yeast mix is bubbly add to the flour and stir. whisk until you’ve reached a smooth batter.  Set aside for about 1/2 hour. Pour the batter in a squirt bottle.
  3. Heat the poffertjes pan on medium high (I don’t have one, but this one will do) add some butter and squirt the holes half way full. If you have the original poffertjes pan you fill it all the way up. Flip the ‘poffertjes’ after about one minute, or until golden brown. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and add some butter.
