Dutch Babies/German Pancakes

Arielle made these Saturday for breakfast, and reminded me the recipe is not on the blog. A terrible oversight indeed. ::grin::

1/3 C butter
5 large eggs
1 C milk
1 C flour

Place butter in a 9 x 13 or giant cast iron skillet (above); set in 425* oven to melt.

While butter is melting, put eggs in blender and blend 1 minute on high.

Gradually add milk, the flour; blend 30 seconds.

Remove the baking dish from the oven and pour the batter into the hot, melted butter.

Return to oven and bake until puffy and browned, 20 - 25 minutes.

This REALLY puffs with bleached flour -but doesn't do bad at all with whole wheat. It deflates quickly so have the kids gather around for the great unveiling.

Top with butter and syrup; jam; fruit (strawberries, blueberries...all kinds really); powdered sugar;almond butter and maple syrup. Maria, our friend from Puerto Rico prefers salt, pepper and avocado on hers.

Sounds delicious! I have to say that the "Dutch Babies" name reminds me of the babies riding the carrots over at the website, lol.

We use the recipe from the MOMYS cookbook and for those who can have it...if you add brown sugar to the melted butter before the batter it will cook it and make it like a syrupy coating. Yum! Tho my kiddoes still put powdered sugar on top! ;)
