Dutch Pancakes/Poffertjes

Dutch pancakes/Poffertjes

Well, these are slightly addictive! These lovely little morsels are a favourite Sunday breakfast in our house. We serve ours with fresh berries, ice cream and maple syrup. Whilst they are a sweet treat I think these would be amazing with a savoury option too. You do need a special pan for these to get this gorgeous shape.


2 cups self-raising flour sifted

2 tbs caster sugar

1 pinch salt

1 cup milk

1/2 cup water

3 eggs

1 splash maple syrup *to serve

1 pinch icing sugar *to serve

1 scoop vanilla ice cream *to serve


Combine flour, sugar and salt into a large bowl.

Add milk and water, and mix with an electric mixer until smooth, scraping sides if necessary. Add eggs and mix until combined and smooth.

Heat poffertjes pan and lightly grease indentations.

Add the mixture until holes are full. Cook for a few minutes, and then turn over gently.

Poffertjes are cooked when they are golden brown and puffy.
