|Dutch Babies are a hit!|
So I began researching how to make Dutch Babies, and I was relieved to find out that there are only about three billion different ways to make them. I also did not have time to do a practice run, so Taylor's birthday would be my first attempt. No sweat! I looked
Prep time - 10 minutes
Baking time - 18 minutes
Difficulty - as easy as falling out of bed
- 3 eggs
- 2/3 cup of milk
- 2/3 cup of flour
- 3-4 tablespoons of butter
- dash of salt
- dash of vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg (all optional)
1) Preheat oven to 450 degrees with a pie plate in the oven (many recipes call for a cast iron skillet. I tried both and found no difference between the skillet and the pie plate, except that the pie plate is much easier to clean)

3) When the oven is preheated, remove the pie plate and melt the butter, making sure to butter the sides as well.
*After the butter is melted, one optional step is to line the
bottom of the pie plate with peeled, sliced apples. This
makes for one delicious Dutch Baby.

5) Put the pie plate in the oven and bake for 18-22 minutes, or until the sides are golden.
6) Remove from pie plate with a spatula, sprinkle with lemon juice and dust with powdered sugar (This is the most "traditional" according to my Aunt Kris, although I haven't seen her credentials. You can really put anything you want on top). To serve, cut or tear into pieces.

So many possibilities, so few Saturdays.
