So here is the recipe:
Dutch Babies (or German Pancakes)
For four servings,
- 4 Eggs
- 1 Cup Milk
- 1 Cup Flour
- approx. 6 - 8 Tablespoons of butter/margerine
Preheat oven to 425 while you are blending the the egg mixture. Crack the eggs into a blender and whirl at high speed for about a minute. With the motor running, gradually add the milk, and then the flour. Continue whirling for 30 seconds.
Portion the butter into one large oven-safe non-stick skillet (3 - 4 quart size) or 4 small oven safe non-stick skillets (1 quart size) (I use a 8" teflon oven-safe skillet to make individual servings), then put in the oven to melt. If you are using 4 skillets, divide the butter equally between them. I also spray the pan with non-stick coating to make sure the Dutch Babies don't stick to the pans, which would spoil the presentation!
When the butter is melted, pour the egg mixture into the skillet/skillets and bake for 20 - 25 minutes. It is done when edges are browned and the center is firm.
Serve immediately. May be served plain, sprinkled with powdered sugar, syrup, lemon wedges, or fruit.
