Poffertjes are often referred to as "miniature Dutch pancakes" and this is what I prefer to call them. A purist may want to take issue with this because Poffertjes and pancakes have little in common other than that they share a common ancestry. However, they are easy to make (get yourself a cast iron plate) and good fun for kids and adults alike. Give them a try.
Eat the mini pancakes hot! Traditionally, you add a lump of butter and burry the pancakes in icing sugar. Alternatively, you can serve your mini pancakes with caramel, chocolate or strawberry sauce or just get creative.
