Mini Dutch Pancakes. Tiny morsels of soft pancake goodness in your mouth! Dairy-free and made in the ease of a blender. Perfect for breakfast or dessert!
My mini dutch pancakes recipe originate from the Netherlands and are also called Poffertjes. They're tender and absolutely tasty! A must-try if you're a pancake lover. Perfect for breakfast or dessert.
I made mine in a blender but you really don't need a blender for this recipe! I just like being able to cut down on the number of dishes I have to wash. Also, being able to pour into the pan from a spouted container makes the process easier. However, if you don't have a blender you can use a mixing bowl!

What are mini dutch pancakes?
They are mini sized soft little pancakes that are usually covered with a sweet topping of your choice, such as chocolate, a thick vanilla syrup, or fruits.
I first had them in Switzerland during my travels there and it was love at first bite! So much that I had to go back and get seconds. And thirds on the next day! It was that delicious. Especially with the caramel sauce they drizzled over top. Pure heaven. If I ever go back to Switzerland, I am going to have them every single day while I’m there because that was my biggest regret! In fact there were so many delicious foods there that I still have yet to try!

- 1 cup oat milk or almond milk
- ½ cup water
- 3 eggs
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- Coconut oil for cooking
