What Are Poffertjes.
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.

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.
Dutch mini pancakes 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.
