I was watching The Today Show this morning and caught Martha Stewart’s segment on making Dutch Babies. It looked pretty easy and is a fun alternative to regular pancakes.
• 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature• 3 large eggs• 3/4 cup whole milk• 1/2 cup all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled)• 1/4 teaspoon salt• 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract• 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar• 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
Preheat oven to 425°. In a medium cast-iron or ovenproof nonstick skillet, melt 2 tablespoons butter over medium; set aside.
In a blender, combine eggs, milk, flour, salt, vanilla and 1/4 cup sugar. Blend until foamy, about 1 minute. Pour batter into skillet (at this point, you can add cut fruit or chocolate chips in the batter); bake until pancake is puffed and lightly browned, about 20 minutes.
Working quickly, dot pancake with 1 tablespoon butter, and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon sugar and lemon juice. Slice into wedges, and serve immediately.
I wonder if this would work in a regular glass square baking pan. There’s a good chance I’m making these tomorrow for my boy’s 3rd birthday breakfast!
