Dutch Poffertjes, Sweet

The Dumpling Diva shows and tells of Dutch "Poffertjes" derived from or substituted for holy church bread during Napoleon's time.

Marja's incantation on the subject:
These little cakes both sweet and savory
illustrate the phenom of cuisine and culture crossing borders
and in this case
to become
wholesome popular
Dutch street food.
