Recipe for Dutch Babies. Can you say YUM?!

There is a restaurant here in town that makes delicious Dutch Babies. So, you can imagine how thrilled I was to find this recipe for Dutch Babies in The Homestyle Amish Kitchen Cookbook. Now, I’m sharing it with you!

2 eggs
&#189 cup milk
&#189 cup flour
&#189 tsp. salt
pinch of nutmeg (optional)
2 T. butter
2 T. powdered sugar for dusting.

Place a 10-inch cast-iron skillet or heavy frying pan with sides inside oven and preheat oven to 475&#176.

Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, beat eggs with a whisk until light and frothy. Add milk and stir. Gradually whisk in flour, salt, and nutmeg.

Remove skillet from oven and reduce oven temperature to 425&#176. Melt butter in hot skillet so that the bottom and sides are completely coated with butter. Pour the batter into the skillet and immediately return to oven.

Bake at 425&#176 until puffed and lightly browned, about 12 minutes. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve immediately, either plain or with maple syrup.

Note: You can easily double this recipe if you have a larger frying pan.

    Typically it’s eaten for breakfast. At least that’s when I eat it!
