Dutch Baby

When you want to step up your breakfast game, but don't have a lot of time to do it, a show-stopping Dutch Baby is just the thing.  I bet you even have all the ingredients on hand.  When you are ready to take it out of the oven, you'll want to work quick as it will deflate.  This recipe comes from Joy of Cooking.


1/2 cup milk

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1/4 cup sugar

2 large eggs, at room temperature

4 Tbsp. unsalted butter


Preheat your oven to  425 degrees.  In a bowl, whisk together the milk, flour, sugar and eggs until smooth.  In a 10-inch ovenproof skillet (I use a cast iron) melt the butter over medium heat.  Make sure to tilt the pan to evenly coat the bottom and sides.  Pour the egg mixture into the skillet and cook, without stirring for 1 minute.  Place the skillet in the oven and bake until the pancake is puffed and golden, 12 to 15 minutes.  Serve immediately.  This will serve 2-4, but to tell you the truth, my teenage boys can eat one by themselves easily.  It's great with a dusting of powdered sugar, or some maple syrup.  Enjoy!
