IONPoffertje

I don’t usually go in for sweet treats, and it’s not very often that I’m compelled enough to write about them here – but I’m feeling like I need something sweet to counteract my usual acerbic demeanour. Here then is one of my favourite desserts to eat – Poffertjes.

They’re a Dutch sort of mini-pancake, usually eaten in the summertime, sprinkled with powdered sugar and eaten with butter, because heart attacks are awesome. They’re traditionally made with buckwheat flour and the diving little morsels are usually puffier and spongier than other sorts of pancakes, and are especially decadent eaten with cream, and a bit of syrup, honey or even jam.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
