Dutch mini buckwheat pancakes are a great start for a great weekend. Dutch mini pancakes, also called “poffertjes” are on my to-do list for a while already. I was thinking of how to use the leftover buckwheat flour from the Christmas blinis I made, and I think this was the ideal breakfast to do so.


Some time ago I bought a multifunctional baking device from Tefal with different plates for different bakings. Whether it be madeleines, croques, waffles or pancakes, there is a plate for all of them. Other recipes I made with this baking device are:

And so I am using the plate for “poffertjes” for this breakfast. I remember eating these Dutch mini pancakes for the first time when I was a child and we were on Holiday in the Netherlands, Zeeland. The recipe is quite easy, the challenge is in putting the dough in the small forms. I use two small spoons for that in “quenelle” style.

    These little Dutch pancakes look so cute. I reckon buckwheat makes some of the best pancakes, so I bet they taste really good too.

    Thanks for sharing with #CookBlogShare (though I couldn’t see a link to Tin and Thyme?).
