Dutch Baby Recipe

Another classic from Jesika, recipe from The Joy of Cooking. Dutch baby, the best sweet breakfast thingy in the world. Just as easy, if not easier than, pancakes, and a million times more buttery and yummy.

Dutch Baby
From Joy of Cooking

1/2 cup milk
2 large eggs, room temp.
1/4 teaspoons salt
1/2 cup flour
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter
Confectioners' sugar for dusting

Whisk milk, eggs, and salt in a mixing bowl. Mix in flour and whisk until smooth. Melt butter in a 10-inch cast iron skillet or other ovenproof pan. Add flour mixture and cook for one minute without stirring. Place pan in 425 degree F oven for 15 minutes. Reduce heat (without opening the door, the hardest part!) to 350 and cook for another 10 to 15 minutes. Pancake should be large and puffed out of the pan. Sprinkle with sugar and serve immediately (before puff falls). Serve with maple syrup, of course.

So yeah, this thing is delicious and very easy to make. This particular morning, we had our Dutch Baby with homemade Maine syrup (thanks, Dave!) and local Maillot sausage that I got at the market.
