I am the only person in my house who likes this recipe. I can’t help it if everyone else is weird. A Dutch Baby is a simple, almost custard-like pancake that poofs beautifully in the oven. It is buttery and sweet. I love it, so I make it often.
Just for myself.
2 T butter
½ c. milk
½ c. AP flour
¼ c. sugar
1 T butter softened
Pinch of nutmeg
Powdered sugar for dusting
Preheat oven to 425.
Melt the 2 tablespoons of butter in an oven proof 10 inch skillet. Coat the skillet with the butter by swirling the butter around.
Wisk the milk, flour, sugar, eggs, and softened butter. Pour into the skillet over medium and cook for one minute.
After a minute, place your skillet in the oven for twelve to fifteen minutes. Check back often, because this pancake will poof up and look as if it might explode. The kiddos will think it is cool even if they won’t eat it.
Remove the pancake from the oven and sprinkle with the powdered sugar. Slice like a pie and serve immediately. You may choose to share yours.
I have read that lemon and fresh berries make a nice topping, but I prefer to eat my Dutch Baby plain. And alone.
I think there is a country song about that. If not, there should be.
