Dutch Poffertjes – The best mini pancakes in town are on Bastille Festival !
Dutch Poffertjes Mini Pancakes (pronounce POH-fur-tjes) are mouth watering puffy powdered pancakes from Holland. They come served with a variety of fresh fruit & secret recipe toppings.
These lovely little morsels are very addictive and lovely served piping hot with maple syrup, icing sugar and a beautiful vanilla ice-cream.
Dutch Poffertjes are a traditional Dutch batter treat. Resembling small, fluffy pancakes, they are made with yeast and buckwheat flour. Unlike American pancakes, they have a light, spongy texture. Typically, poffertjes are served with powdered sugar and butter and sometimes syrup.
Mainly in the winter season, temporary stands selling poffertjes are quite popular, and sell portions containing one or two dozen of them. Usually the cook prepares them freshly for the customer. They are sold on a small cardboard (sometimes plastic) plate and come with a small disposable fork the size of a pastry fork.
Come and visit Dutch Poffertjes House stall at Bastille Festival, Nordic Village, East Circular Quay on 13,14,15 and 16 July 2017.
Be careful though as one serve is never enough!
