POFFERTJES

HISTORY OF DUTCH MINI PANCAKES

Poffertjes are a traditional batter treat. Small and fluffy and made from wheatflour and Yeast they have a light spongy texture. Poffertjes are served with a variety of toppings and can be eaten at any time of the day.

Poffertjes are considered to be a totally Dutch product but their origins trace back to 19th century French monastery’s. The monks came up with the original Poffertjes recipe but traded it with the Dutch who went on to develop it further. By 1815 the mini pancakes were solely baked in Holland and got their name as we know it today of Poffertjes as they puffed up during baking.  Poffertjes is actually pronounced POFF-ER-CHUZS.

In the modern day they are mainly served at fairs and street markets. As you would expect they are hugely popular in their Dutch homeland but are also gathering a huge following in Australia.

MAKING OF POFFERTJES

EASY TO MAKE, HARD TO PERFECT

Poffertjes are best served freshly cooked in a purpose built cast iron poffertjes grill to bring out all the texture and flavour. The grill has a number of dimples in it corresponding to the number of poffertjes you are making. The batter is precisely cooked for exactly the correct amount of time before being served hot with a small amount of butter, icing sugar and a choice of toppings.

  • Freshly cooked and served hot

  • Choice of toppings to add extra flavour

  • Deliciously tempting and attractive to the eye

  • Able to cater for small or large gatherings
