Sometimes you just need dessert. Last night was one of those times and because daughter No. 2 had been talking about pancakes, I decided to make Little Dutch pancakes also known as poffertje. I whipped up a batch, recipe from here, and discovered pouring the batter into the pan from a jug is so much easier than ladling from a spoon. Who would have thought!
Some of us had our pancakes with ice cream and chocolate sauce, others sugar and butter. I chose the ice cream combination but would happily eat these with golden syrup, maple syrup, lemon juice and sugar and berries or other fruit. They even make a good snack with butter and jam when cold which was my late afternoon tea today.
One of the fun things about cooking is when the unexpected happens.
This teddy bear face pancake happened all by itself. This recipe makes a huge batch so we have plenty left over for snacking. Yum!
I'd love to hear about any interesting and unexpecting happenings in your kitchen. Do share.
