Dutch Babies – a German pancake

These puffy pancakes looks so fancy and impressive, but they are so amazingly easy to make!

What you need:

  • 5 eggs
  • ½ cup milk
  • ¾ cup unbleached flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ stick of butter
  • 1/8 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 cups of mixed berries

How to Do it:

Heat the oven to 400 degrees.  Put the butter in a 10 to 12 inch cast iron skillet and let it melt until bubbly.

While it’s melting, put the eggs in a blender and process on medium-high until they are foamy.

Add the flour, milk, salt, spices, sugar and vanilla and process until well mixed.

Pour the batter over the butter in the pan and return to the oven.

Bake for about 15 – 20 minutes, until the pancake is puffy and lightly browned.

Remove from the oven.  Using a wire strainer, shake the powdered sugar over the top of the pancake.

Serve with fresh berries and jam.

I like to serve candied bacon on the side!
