My Nanny used to make me the most wonderful thing for breakfast, called "Dutch Babies".
I've never seen anyone else cook them, although I have found online that the recipe is well known and that some people refer to them as "German Pancakes".
Now as an adult this is still one of my favorite things to eat (because it's yummy)....
and one of my favorite things to cook (because it's super simple).
I love that my Nanny wrote this recipe out for me because everytime I make these I get to pull the card out of my recipe box and lay it out on the counter while I'm cooking and it's like she's there with me in the kitchen!
- Put 1/3 Cup of butter into your baking dish and stick in the oven at 450 degrees to melt while your mix the other ingredients.
Beat 5 Eggs for one minute.
Then add 1 Cup of Milk and 1 Cup of Flour (I always use wholegrain) and mix that in well.
*The recipe doesn't call for it, but if I think about it I usually add a bit of Vanilla Extract too.
Pour this in the pan on top of your melted butter and bake for 20 Minutes.
The fun part as a kid was always watching it bake.....
Here's what it looks like after 5 minutes:
and here it is after about 15 minutes:
When you take it out of the oven it usually shrinks down a bit as it cools.
Serve it with a bit of syrup and powdered sugar and it's absolutely delicious!
