Instructions in English

Put the flour in a bowl and make a hole in the middle. Sprinkle salt on the outside of the flour and the yeast in the hole.
Make milk and egg lukewarm (microwave). Stirr a little in the hole and keep 2 minutes stirring.
Poor the remain milk/egg in the hole and mix, first slowly after all is in faster and faster.
Put the bowl on a warm spot in the room (or in the microwave that is not in use).
Let it raise for 1 hour.
I bought a thing you can put the batter in.
Put the Pofferttjes-pan on the fire and heaten a little. Brush margarine in the holes and let the pan get hot.
Fill the holes for 2/3 with the batter.
Remember the first one you fill and make a round, so when the surface is dry you can check if there are brown. You can turn them upside down in the same order as fillling.
Eat 12 or 15 on a plate, put a small piece of butter on the poffertjes and sprinkle them royal with confectioners’ sugar.
Has to be eaten warm.

  1. These look really good – I can’t believe I could make them as neat as those ones in the picture, but I guess that doesn’t really matter 😉 I can imagine dipping them in something – would chocolate sauce work? That would be real comfort food!
