One of the snacks we had at the Albert Cuyp Markt was poffertjes. Poffertjes are small fluffy Dutch pancakes with a spongey texture. They usually come with powdered sugar and butter.
I think there was only one place selling poffertjes at the market that day:
When we first got to the market, they didn't have any ready (it was on the early side). So we decided we would try again on the way back through the market since poffertjes were definitely something we wanted to try.
Another great thing about poffertjes - they're cheap! The snack only cost us 2 euro.
We watched them making more poffertjes. First, you fill the pans with the batter:
Keep checking them to make sure they're done:
When they're ready, pick them out and dust them with sugar:
And then you get a tasty treat like this:
Here's another look so you can see how they are in size:
The poffertjes were a great snack. Since our next stop after the market was to the art museums in Museumplein, it was just filling enough (with the fries we had) to keep us full until lunch. The Dutch are known for their pancakes - more on our favorite pancakes still to come!
