A Dutch Delight

One of our staple go-to easy dinners is a Dutch favourite of mine.  I will admit right off the starting line that, although I DO in fact have a recipe to make these from scratch myself, I find it much more convenient to keep a box or two of mix on hand.  Also, that gives me an excuse to go to the Dutch food store a couple times a year to check things out and maybe come home with some spekulaas or kruid notjes (love these tiny cookies!).

Poffertjes:

Essentially, these are tiny buckwheat pancakes that are served hot with a little butter and a sprinkling of icing sugar.

They’re kind of rounded on both sides from cooking in their special poffertje maker pan.  My pan is cast iron and was a very much appreciated gift from my in-laws one Christmas.  I had searched everywhere and could not find the pan though I have since seen lightweight stainless steel versions at the Dutch store.

A note of advice about buying the boxed mix, you’ll need to know a few key Dutch words to translate the instructions into English…  But definitely worth it!
