Dutch Baby Pancake

Hi Everyone,

I know it has been some time since my last post and
I am sorry. It has been very busy around here and
at work which leaves me with little to no
time to blog. Don't worry though, I am always trying
out new recipes, taking photos and eating.

My husband is the Sunday Morning Chef and today he made
a wonderful breakfast. I found this recipe for
a Dutch Baby Pancake in Everyday Food. I have held on to
the recipe for some time but now, after having it,
I think it will become a favorite in our house.

Dutch Baby Pancake

3 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
3 large eggs
3/4 cup whole milk
1/2 cup all-purpose flour, (spooned and leveled)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
*Toppings : fresh strawberries and mango.

1.Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a medium cast-iron or ovenproof nonstick skillet, melt 2 tablespoons butter over medium heat; set aside.
2.In a blender, combine eggs, milk, flour, salt, vanilla, and 1/4 cup sugar. Blend until foamy, about 1 minute. Pour batter into skillet; bake until pancake is puffed and lightly browned, about 20 minutes.
3.Working quickly, dot pancake with 1 tablespoon butter, and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon sugar and lemon juice. Slice into wedges, and serve immediately. We added fresh,cut strawberries and mango to the top of our pancake.

*This is an excellent dish. It does not taste anything like a pancake. It is more like custard with a crispy outside. You really should give this recipe a try!
