Dutch Baby

These are so yummy and super easy! A great alternative to traditional pancakes or waffles, without having to babysit the fry pan.

These are known by a few different names: German pancake, puff pancake, Dutch baby...
In my mind, it is simply and GIANT yorkshire pudding! Yum!

1/3 cup Butter/Margarine
5 Eggs
1 1/4 cups Milk
1 tsp Vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups All-purpose Flour

Preheat oven to 425.
While oven is heating, melt butter in a cast iron skilled on the stovetop. (You may also use a glass baking dish and melt your butter in the dish in the oven.)

In a blender, blend together eggs, milk, flour and vanilla extract. Once butter is melted and oven has preheated, pour batter into the cast iron skillet.

Bake in oven for 20-25 minutes, or until center is cooked.
Serve with sliced apples or fresh blueberries and maple syrup.

We love Dutch Baby!!! it was always my birthday breakfast growing up. and now my kids love it, too. Although we've considered changing our name for it to Puffy Pancake since we serve with a lot of Dutch families, and... well, that's a little creepy... :-)
