Poffertjes

Definitely a Dutch treat. I remember going to the mountains with friends when I was a kid and being introduced to this deliciousness. Poffertjes are essentially miniature pancakes, usually topped with powdered (caster) sugar.
When I moved to the Netherlands last year, one of the gifts in my "welcome basket" was a poffertjes pan - a frying pan with little dimples to pour the batter into. Also in the basket was a packet of poffertjes mix! My then-fiance (now husband) and I stood over the stove for about an hour one night and made the whole batch. Between all the batter drips, laughing, and mistakes, we ended up with a pretty good amount of the tasty little things. This week I made my own mix from a recipe I found online, and made a new batch with my mum. Eet smakelijk!

New smartphone.

New smartphone. Whole new era,as it were. On the go, here I am, riding the lift, shopping at albert heijn, biking in my city. Most excellent.
