Dutch Babies!

Dutch Baby
This morning I made a big Dutch Baby for breakfast. One of my brothers first shared this recipe with the rest of the family and we all FELL in LOVE. It's so easy, fast, and wowing I wanted to share with the rest of you.

It tastes like a crepe or a Swedish pancake but is much better and easier to make.

2/3 Stick of Butter
4-6 Eggs
¾ Cup Flour
¾ Cup Milk
3 Tbsp Sugar
Dash of Salt
Tsp Vanilla

9x9 pan or even better a big cast iron pan like mine.

Dutch Baby Mix
Turn your oven to 400°. Put 2/3 stick of butter in the pan and heat up in the oven; keep an eye on it so the butter doesn’t burn. Mix the rest of the ingredients together to make a smooth batter while you’re butter is heating up. Be sure there are no lumps in the mix. After butter is melted pour mix into the pan and bake for 15-20 minutes. Do not blend butter into the mix.

Over the course of baking it will slowly begin to rise...

After it’s baked you can eat it plain or with berries, powdered sugar, syrup or whatever else you think might be tasty.

ETA 2-20-11: This morning I threw the batter into a muffin pan instead of my castiron and it turned out great! Love the mini look so much I may have to make this a regular practice.

If you try this recipe in the muffin pan, just remember to put a little slice of butter in each cup and melt before adding the batter. Cooking time was only slightly less.

This is one of my favorite recipes, hope you enjoy it as much as our family does.

We love these also (our recipe varies ever so slightly), but we call them Volcano pancakes.
We haven't had them since we left the sticks & bricks - good to know that we can make them in the rv!!! (course it would take us about 5 batches!LOL!)
