Poffertjes, a Dutch delicacy ...
Poffertjes are a dough dish that nowadays is mainly eaten in the Netherlands. They are a kind of small pancakes, but thicker because they rise.
Traditionally a Dutch fairground tradition
Poffertjes are originally from France. At the time, Napoleon seized almost all of the flour to feed his army, creating a shortage of making hosts for the church. The poffertje was created by experimenting with a mixture of different types of flour.
They came to the Netherlands through peddlers and fairs.
The original recipe contains egg and milk. We make delicious vegan poffertjes and therefore even healthier!
