Poffertjes refers to mini or small Dutch puffed or fluffy pancakes drizzled with powdered sugar and traditionally served with hot melted butter.Poffertjes derived its name from the manner they are prepared, where the dough "puffs" up in the special pan when baked/cooked. They are also called Dutch mini puffed pancakes.

They are a typical treat from the Netherlands which is always a must-eat treat during national holidays, festivals and other Holland festivities.

During Christmas and New Year's Eve, Poffertjes stalls called Poffertjeskraam are all over the country.

Poffertjes are baked/cooked in a special pan (Poffertjespan) with little circular depressions and flipped with a special two-pronged fork.
