Looking to impress your family Saturday morning with something a little out of the ordinary? My husband is 1/2 Dutch, so it seemed only fitting that he surprise me one morning with a Dutch Baby. Since that morning, it’s not a weekend without it. It’s gorgeous. It’s sophisticated. It will put the zing back into your hum drum breakfast routine. And let’s face it, if my husband can make it, so can you!
3 tbsp unsalted butter (it’s important to use unsalted)
2 eggs (beaten)
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp nutmeg or cinammon
*lemon and powdered sugar for garnish
Directions: Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Put the butter in a cast iron skillet and place in the oven to melt. Meanwhile, mix the remaining ingredients together with a whisk. When the butter has melted, remove the skillet from the oven and pour in the batter. Return to oven and bake for 18-20 minutes or until puffy and brown around the edges. Remove from oven and squeeze with half a lemon and powdered sugar. *Other toppings include fruit, ricotta cheese, honey, maple syrup.
