Ingredients Serving: 6

  1. 400 ml milk
  2. 3 tsp fresh yeast or 1 1/2 tsp dried yeast
  3. 200 gms whole wheat flour or white flour
  4. 100 gms buckwheat flour or white flour
  5. A pinch of salt
  6. 1 egg


  1. Crumble the yeast and place in a bowl. Warm the milk, make sure it is only lukewarm. Add in the yeast and mix and completely dissolve. Set aside.
  2. If you do not have a poffertjes pan, increase the milk by 350 ml, you should get a flowing batter just like any pancake batter.
  3. In another bowl, beat the flours if using different kinds, salt, egg and the remaining warm milk. Whisk it to a smooth batter, make sure that no lumps remain.
  4. Place a towel over the bowl and place in a warm place for an hour for the batter to rise. It should look bubbly and have increased in quantity.
  5. Using a whisk, stir well to combine and fry small pancakes with 1-2 tablespoons of the batter only.
  6. Heat a non stick frying pan, add some butter and pour 1 to 2 tbsp of the batter. After a few minutes, gently loosen them and flip over, when the underside is golden.
  7. Enjoy them with some icing sugar over the top or some maple syrup.
