Dutch Baby

Bless you, Rachel.

Her family served a German pancake while I was at their house on Saturday.  It was close enough to a Dutch baby to remind me to make one (and it was absolutely delicious).  Pair that reminder with complaints that Chrissy and I never make good breakfasts anymore (the complainer doesn't like eggs, apparently...), and we had a Dutch Baby for breakfast this morning!

Mama wanted peaches, so we had those on top.

Dutch Baby

Melt 1/4 cup butter in a medium-large (about 2-3 quarts) skillet in a 450 degree oven.  Meanwhile, whip 3 eggs until foamy (or, if you suddenly realize you only have one egg, just stick with that.  It works!).

Whip in 3/4 cup of flour, and 3/4 cup milk (or 1 1/4 cup, if you only had one egg).  Take the skillet with the melted butter out of the oven and sprinkle it with cinnamon, then pour in the batter.

Return to oven and bake for 20-25 minutes.

When done, remove from oven and top with fruit, syrup, or powdered sugar.  This recipe serves about three people generously, or six people can each have a smaller slice.
