Dutch poffertjes were a big hit over the holidays, Lisa has been raving about how much she likes them. Here is a partial batch being made in my little iron poffertjes pan, it was shown in the iron cookware entry.
Poffertjes are little puffy pancakes, recipes vary, with yeast or with baking powder. These luscious little babies are a yeast batter and I served them with cherries and powdered sugar, the only snow we've had in Fresno.

|Canela or cinnamon tea with milk and sugar|
|Canela or cinnamon tea before milk|
After sipping two cups of canela, Mexican word for cinnamon, I realized my headache was gone and it didn't come back.
Did you notice my cup has flaws in the inner design, little white circles where the color didn't take. I bought four cups and saucers at the seconds shop at Villeroy & Boch in Luxembourg. That was during a shopping trip in 1992 with women from the American Women's Club of Amsterdam while I lived in Holland. The cup and saucer patterns are different, the cup is the Persia pattern and saucer is Flora Bella but they coordinate.
