250 gr all purpose flour

1 t instant yeast

50 gr sugar

3 egg yolks

375 ml milk, room temperature

1/2 t vanilla, 1/2 t baking powder, 1/4 t salt

50 gr butter / margarine, melted

Toppings & Fillings:

chocolate chips, cheese { optional }

Butter / margarine

Powder sugar

Kitchen equpiment:



Mini pancake pan or Poffertjes pan, link here: Poffertjes pan on Amazon

Kitchen brush



Mix flour, yeast and sugar.

Whisk egg yolks and milk together.  Pour onto the flour mix.  Whisk until you’ve reach a smooth batter.

Cover the bowl with a clean damp kitchen towel and let it rest for 30-60 minutes.

Add the rest of ingredients.  Mix well.

Heat poffertjes pan on medium heat and lightly butter each dimple

Pour a small amount of batter in each dimple. { since I don’t have a Poffertjes pan, I use mini pancake pan instead }

Flip the Poffertjes after about one minute, or until golden brown.

Brush some butter / margarine and sprinkle some powder sugar.

Serve warm.

Repeat with remaining batter, grease pan between additions.

If you have one  Poffertjes pan and want to make a ball like Poffertjes, here is the trick:

After you pour a small of batter in each dimple, wait till the sides dry up a bit.  Take out from the pan and put aside.

Repeat the first step, but when you see the skin started to form, add filling if you like { such as cheese, chocolate, etc }.

Then put the first half round Poffertjes you make earlier on top of the second one.

Rotate with skewer.  Cook till golden brown.

Hope you like my recipe and Happy cooking !
