This Banana Dutch Baby is flavorful, buttery and smooth and the texture is very similar to bread pudding. If you love bread pudding, then this recipe is a must. —April B

Is it milk or buttermilk? Ingredients list says buttermilk, instructions say milk.

The instructions call for adding brown sugar, however brown sugar is not listed as an ingredient. How much brown sugar do you suggest adding?
