Making poffertjes without a poffertjes pan? Of course that’s possible! We tried it and came to the conclusion that you don’t really need a poffertjes pan at all to make delicious poffertjes. In fact, we think it’s cool that the poffertjes look a bit more capricious as a result.
For 4 to 6 servings
For the poffertjes
- 50 grams butter, melted
- 3 dl milk
- 11 grams dried yeast
- 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
- 40 grams of granulated sugar
- 250 grams wheat flour
- 1 egg
- 1 vanilla pod
- 125 grams of sour cream
- Butter for baking
- pinch cinnamon
For the plum compote
- 100 grams dried plums, pitted and cut into small pieces
- 0.75 dl water
- 1.5 tbsp sugar candy
- 1 dash of balsamic vinegar
- 100 grams of grated cheese (e.g. Spicy 45+)
- 100 grams of Vegetarian Bacon (from the Vegetarian Butcher ) or regular bacon
- Powdered sugar
Anyone who likes sweet-salt combinations will love this recipe. The sweetness of the poffertjes and the plum compote are a killer combination with the saltiness of the crispy bacon and cheese.
This is how you make the poffertjes
First make the plum compote. Heat a saucepan over medium heat and add all the ingredients in it. Stir well until the plums have reduced to a syrupy mass.
Also fry the vegetarian bacon until crispy and set aside.
Place the milk, yeast, cream of tartar, sugar, cinnamon, flour and egg in a large bowl and mix together. Also add the seeds from the vanilla pod, then the melted butter, sour cream and a pinch of salt. Mix the batter with a stick blender.
Heat a pan and melt a knob of butter. With a tablespoon (or a squeeze bottle or a batter dispenser) make small heaps of the dough the size of a poffertje. Fry the poffertjes on both sides until golden brown.
Tip: Do you have an empty ketchup bottle? If you rinse it thoroughly, you can put your batter in it and then use it as a squeeze bottle.
Serve the poffertjes with a few teaspoons of the plum compote, the grated Dutch cheese, the bacon and a little powdered sugar.
