It was a rainy afternoon, simply perfect to try my special frying pan, that I was seeking for years. Poffertjes are a traditonal Dutch treat, that look like tiny pancakes, but they are much lighter. Usually served with icing sugar and butter. You also find these in the Czech cuisine, personally I knew them under the name Talkedli, or Czech "doughnut". Traditionally those are served with Powidl a plum stew that is prepared without any sweeteners or gelling agents. I chose to serve with icing sugar and some delicious apricot jam.

400 g flour
20 g fresh yeast
2 eggs

500 ml milk
100 g sugar
oil or butter oil for frying

Pour flour into a mixing bowl, pour 200 ml lukewarm milk in the middle, sprinkle yeast and 20 g sugar in it. Let stand until yeast swims on top. Add egg yolks, a pinch of salt, rest of the milk and the sugar. Mix well with a help of a wooden spoon for 10-15 minutes. Let it stand for about 45 minutes to 1 hour. Beat egg whites and fold into the batter. Heat the frying pan and bake them one after the other and serve warm.
