Did you know that ‘poffertjes’ are sort of like fluffy mini-pancakes but because they are flipped over when one side is not fully thickened, they have a spongy texture on the inside? They are served with powdered sugar, melting butter and syrup.

Poffertjes can be made at home, bought as streetfood and are also available as ready-to-microwave in the supermarket.
