- 1 level tsp instant yeast
- 1 tbsp milk
- 1 cup buckwheat flour (100 g)
- 1 cup flour (100 g)
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp sugar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 1/4 cups warm milk (250 ml)
- 1 tbsp butter
- Good quality butter and powdered sugar to serve
Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and allow to rest for an hour.
Melt butter in a frying pan. When it sizzles, add teaspoonfuls of the batter in circular movements to create the mini pancakes. Turn the poffertjes around as soon as the bottom has set, using two forks.
Serve Pancake Puffs with the best quality butter you can find and sieved powdered (icing) sugar.
If you happen to have a poffertjes pan (usually a cast iron pan with a dozen or so indentations) please do use it, but I really don't think a special shopping trip is required. I have managed to make perfectly good poffertjes without the special pan on many an occasion.
