Dutch Pancakes (Poffertjes)

Dutch Pancakes (Poffertjes)


125 grams plain flour
125 grams buckwheat flour
1 large egg
250 ml full cream milk
150 ml water
15 grams fresh yeast
50 grams melted butter
Some salt (if butter is unsalted)


You will need a special poffertjes pan with 3 cm dimples in it.

Dissolve the yeast in 3 tablespoons lukewarm milk.

Mix the plain and buckwheat flour. Add the milk and yeast to make a smooth batter
Stir through the salt, melted butter and the egg.

Cover the batter with a cloth and let the yeast go to work for about an hour. Place your bowl in a sunny position to help the yeast do its work and make sure your bowl is big enough to avoid a spill-over.

Heat your poffertjes pan and grease it with a bit of butter with a cooking brush. Pour your batter quickly into each hole. This is the easiest in a squeeze bottle or a jug.

Turn you mini pancake with a fork and/or skewer once the top is starting to dry a bit.
Leave for another 1 minute until golden brown and simply plate them.
