It is a typical recipe that I have studied in the Netherlands.

Here is a lot tastier than pickled cabbage. It's one now! Small buckwheat pancakes are Poffertjes. It is soft and fluffy; sugar, butter and sip are usually served.

In operations, pannenkoeken is also that.

The Poffertjes are very similar with a few minor differences in preparation. Basically, Poffertjes look more like pancakes and crêpes like pannenkoeken (but a little thicker). You will find some savory and sweet combinations though poffertje are still pretty good.
