"Poffertjes", Dutch mini buckwheat pancakes are a great start for a great weekend. Dutch mini pancakes, also called "poffertjes" are on my to-do list for a while already. I was thinking of how to use the leftover buckwheat flour from the Christmas blinis I made, and I think this was the ideal breakfast to do so.
Some time ago I bought a multifunctional baking device from Tefal with different plates for different bakings. Whether it be madeleines, croques, waffles or pancakes, there is a plate for all of them. Other recipes I made with this baking device are:
And so I am using the plate for "poffertjes" for this breakfast. I remember eating these Dutch mini pancakes for the first time when I was a child and we were on Holiday in the Netherlands, Zeeland. The recipe is quite easy, the challenge is in putting the dough in the small forms. I use two small spoons for that in "quenelle" style.
I am quite sure this will be a new evergreen breakfast on my blog. So I also submitted it to this weeks #CookBlogShare, hosted by TinandThyme, a very inspiring vegetarian food blog with a twist. As you know I also like to be surprised by a new combination on my dish.
If you speak Dutch, you can find the Dutch version of this recipe on gerechtenweb.blog.
