what is hiding under that blanket of sugar?
A gold star for you if you knew what this post would be about just by reading the title. Poffertjes are tiny Dutch pancakes, similar to Danish Ebelskivers, but not filled. They are just covered with butter and a ridiculous amount of powdered sugar, as demonstrated in the picture above. I consumed these almost three years ago in Den Haag (The Hague), but it was such a fond food memory, I had to post it. This is a treat not to be missed.
