Dutch Baby

By • December 5, 2010 • 5 Comments



Author Notes: It is a chilly morning and a warm Dutch Baby (also known as a German pancake) will be just the thing to serve for breakfast! This sweet treat is similar to Yorkshire pudding and is best served with lemon and confectioner's sugar. Don't be disappointed when the pancake falls soon after being removed from the oven. Make sure you eat it while still warm; it is not nearly as good when it is cold!WeLikeToCook

Serves 2-4

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 eggs
  • 3/4 cups milk
  • 3/4 cups flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • lemon wedges
  • Confectioner's sugar
  1. Preheat oven to 425oF. Place butter in a 10" skillet or heavy baking dish and place in oven while preheating. Remove the pan before butter starts to brown.
  2. In the meantime, beat eggs until foamy; add milk, flour, salt and vanilla and blend together until just mixed.
  3. Pour into hot skillet and return to oven for approximately 25 minutes until golden brown and puffed.
  4. Remove the pancake from oven and dust with confectioner’s sugar. Serve immediately with lemon wedges and extra pats of butter. When the lemon juice mixes with the confectioner's sugar it makes a creamy lemony sauce that is perfect.

Shoot! You beat me to the punch! My mom used to make this for us as kids, and I've just started to make it for my own kids when we have a lazy Saturday or Sunday AM. It is so wonderfully yummy! And impressive (to those who don't know how easy it is to make).
