We made our first dutch babies as a married couple!
And they were so good!
When I first heard about this family tradition of his- I thought it sounded like a morbid hansel and Gretel type thing! Turns out the recipe calls for flour, eggs, and butter -essentially.
We like to top our "Babies" with peanut butter and syrup, but I've read that a fruit topping and jam is good too. Can't wait to try it!
3 eggs- room temp
1/2 cup of milk -room temp
1/2 cup of sifted flour
1/8 tsp of vanilla extract (optional)
1/8 tsp of cinnamon (optional)
7 tsp of butter
Preheat oven to 450, place oven rack in the middle of oven. Use a heavy pan- IE cast iron skillet and place it on the rack 10 inch skillet is great- of course the bigger the skillet the more EGGS! You are heating up the skillet. some recipes just tell you to heat it up- but our tradition is to heat up a little butter in the skillet- just be careful not to burn the butter!
In a bowl or Blender- beat the eggs until frothy then add the milk, flour, vanilla, cinnamon and beat for 5 mins.
Now pour the mixture into the preheated skillet.
then cook for 20-25 mins, until the doughy-pancake puffs up as seen in picture.
then top it with whatever you like!
As I said earlier peanut butter and syrup are great but if you want something a little lighter that doesn't stick to you bones as much- use powdered sugar, jam, or other fruit topping or just butter!
