Dutch Babies


Ingredients (adapted from Alton Brown):
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup milk (preferably whole milk), room temperature
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
Directions:
1. Preheat your oven to 375°F. Place a cast-iron skillet in the oven (you can use a cake pan if you don’t have a cast-iron skillet). Melt 2 tablespoons of the butter in the skillet.
2. Beat the eggs well. Add the milk, salt and sugar and beat well.
3. Melt the remaining tablespoon of butter and add to the batter. Add in the flour and whisk well. The batter shouldn’t be too thick or to runny, but a few lumps are okay (add more milk or flour if necessary).
4. Once the skillet is heated, pour all of the batter in and bake for 30-35 minutes, until it has puffed up and is browned on the top. Serve immediately and top with whatever you please.
Topped it off with powdered sugar and strawberries. You could add any fruit you like,maple syrup, chocolate or whipped cream! You could even make it savory with fried eggs, cheese and bacon or sausage.

It’s not too sweet and it’s crispy on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside. So good!
