Dutch Baby

On Sunday morning, I was focused, concentrating very hard on finishing my last couple of reports with a deadline. However, I was also hungry, so really I was concentrating so hard on trying not to be hungry I was doing zero work.

Some back story – During the fall, I was reading blogs in the morning and I read about this delicious pancake type breakfast that was quick to make and delicious. Then, a couple of days later, I saw another person online make this delicious looking breakfast item. I mentally noted that I wanted to eat that someday but didn’t think it would be difficult to find. Months and months later, dozens of searches but for the life of me I can not remember the name until the morning of January 8. The name just popped into my head – Dutch Baby.

A quick Google later, I have plenty of recipes to pick from. I tried to remember the blog I originally found it on and I think it was Angry Chicken, so I Googled “dutch baby angry chicken” and sure enough there it was. Thanks, Angry Chicken, you saved my morning!

    I never made note that these were that easy to make! Excellent choice and will be making one some lazy Sunday morning soon. I think I’ve seen versions where people have added fruit to the batter before baking so might have to go that route for a twist.

    I have approximately 6lbs of powdered sugar left over from making our wedding cakes (bad mental conversion mistake) so can gladly use some for this!

    This looks really delicious. I’m going to try making a half recipe this weekend and will let you know if it works out! I’m already thinking of delicious toppings…sugar and lemon or blackberry jam or maple syrup.

      If you plan ahead I think you could go wild with delicious toppings. Of course this was a spur of the moment thing for me; hence, me using coffee creamer rather than milk. It was the warm sugar cookie variety, too.

  3. i usually make apple puff pancake, which is basically this recipe but first you saute some apple slices in butter and cinnamon sugar. i’m tempted to try the plain version in the morning.
