Baking Challenge – European Style: Week 4 – Dutch Poffertjes

Here they are! Don’t they look awesome? All puffed up and buttery? As you can see the poffertjes turned out well and tasted just as good. As usual, I’ve only made half of the recipe which was plenty for a party of only two. Half the recipe yielded about 12 delicous little poffertjes. I’ve followed the recipe from The Dutch Table. Here goes…

Ingredients Featured image
1 egg
1 cup of flour
1/2 tsp of dry yeast
1/2 cup of warm milk (plus some extra)
some butter
lots of confectioners sugar

Mix dry yeast with a little bit of warm (but not hot) milk and set aside for a couple of minutes.

Mix flour, egg and rest of milk well. Add the yeast/milk mixture.

Cover dough and let rise for about 45 minutes in a warm place.

Luckily, the dough had risen beautifully 🙂

I don’t have a poffertjes pan so I just used a regular frying pan and melted a little bit of butter in it.

Drop several tablespoons of dough separately into the pan.

This doesn’t look so nice and round…

When they get a little dry around the edges and little bubbles appear on top, it’s time to flip them over.

See the bubbles? They are good to be flipped over!

Served with lots of confectioners sugar and butter. Btw – my husband had them with Nutella.

Gereed (Ready)!

Wonderfully puffed up!!! Yes!

Overall they were pretty simply to make – easier than German pancakes which are rather difficult to flip over. However it takes a batch or two to figure out how much dough you need and how to best put it in the pan (rather piled up than flat). My second batch turned out much better than the first one – which was a bit flat…

They are really good and are now my preferred pancakes!
