Hire A Dutch Poffertjes Cart.
A Little Fluffy Piece Of Dutch Heaven
Holland, land of clogs, windmills, very tall people and dodgy brownies.
They also happen to make fabulous mini pancakes called poffertjes. You can try something new and delight your guests.
Drizzled in butter then coated with sugar, little fluffy pieces of joy, making an ideal sweet dessert treat. Although not that well known in this country they are proving popular at weddings, parties and corporate events.
We cook them on traditional poffertjes plaats then serve them in the traditional manner. With a selection of sauces and toppings and a little cocktail stick and dutch flag to eat them with.
For a luxury treat try them with strawberries and cream. Choose one of our themed carts and you have a great dessert offering for any event.
If you are a little more adventurous you can turn them into a savoury snack, served with chilli con carne and jalapeno peppers, or bolognese sauce and guacamole or the traditional Dutch Gouda cheese.
All served from our little Dutch Windmill cart.
What Are Poffertjes
Poffertjes are a traditional treat in the Netherlands. Much like a small fluffy pancake they are made with buckwheat flower and yeast. Unlike American style pancakes they have a light and spongy texture.
Similar pancakes are served in Japan as takoyaki, India as paniyaram and Indonesia as kue cubit.
We use traditional Dutch poffertjes plaats to create our delicious mini pancakes. These cook numerous poffertjes at the same time, and we serve 5 or 6 on a tray.
Dusted in sugar and butter as standard. If you want a more luxury style treat then they can be served with various sauces. Or strawberries and cream make them an ideal summer treat.
If you want something a little different for your guests then this makes a perfect dessert treat. Another of our range of international themed desserts.

Poffertjes Fun Facts
Although being considered a staple of Dutch cuisine, they were rumored to be invented in France!
Pronounced POFF-er-chez, they are traditionally served with butter, powdered sugar and occasionally stroop, a Dutch cooked sugar syrup.
Dutch mini pancakes are made with yeast, which makes them much lighter than normal pancakes.
If someone calls you a “poffertjesporum”, literally a pancake face, it means you look a little stupid.
A savoury version is available, served with Gouda cheese.
They are cooked in special pans with half round indentations to give them their shape.
