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.
My favourite.. not being biased because I'm dutch born.. I just love them anyway... - 30 Aug 2012
