Poffertjes are a traditional treat in the Netherlands. Much like a small fluffy pancake they are made with buckwheat flower and yeast. Unlike American style pancakes they have a light and spongy texture.
Similar pancakes are served in Japan as takoyaki, India as paniyaram and Indonesia as kue cubit.
We use traditional Dutch poffertjes plaats to create our delicious mini pancakes. These cook numerous poffertjes at the same time, and we serve 5 or 6 on a tray. Dusted in sugar and butter as standard. If you want a more luxury style treat then they can be served with various sauces. Or strawberries and cream make them an ideal summer treat.
If you want something a little different for your guests then this makes a perfect dessert treat. Another of our range of international themed desserts.

Poffertjes Fun Facts.
Although being considered a staple of Dutch cuisine, they were rumored to be invented in France!
Pronounced POFF-er-chez, they are traditionally served with butter, powdered sugar and occasionally stroop, a Dutch cooked sugar syrup.
They are made with yeast, which makes them much lighter than normal pancakes.
If someone calls you a “poffertjesporum”, literally a pancake face, it means you look a little stupid.
A savoury version is available, served with Gouda cheese.
They are cooked in special pans with half round indentations to give them their shape.
