Dutch Baby

I made a Dutch baby for breakfast today. Maybe it’s because I have Amsterdam on my mind (we will have a brief stop in Holland later this year) or maybe because I wanted to make an impressive and easy breakfast. Traditionally served with a dusting of icing sugar, fresh lemon juice and a pat of butter, some fruit or sauce takes it up a notch. Practice making this lovely dish, and you can serve guests an impressive brunch dish. 

Heat your oven to 425F. Melt 2 TB butter in a cast iron skillet. 

In a blender, whirl together:

  • 4 eggs
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 2/3 cup flour
  • Pinch of salt

Pour into skillet. Put skillet in oven. Bake for 25 minutes exactly. This gives you time to take a shower AND make coffee. 

Be really impressed. 

Sprinkle with icing sugar. Throw on a pat of butter. Serve with a lemon slice. 

This can be cut into 4 good sized wedges. 

My quick berry sauce:

Dump some frozen berries, a good squirt of lemon juice and sprinkle of sugar into a saucepan. Bring to a boil. Mix a little bit of cornstarch with water. Whisk in. Sauce will get nice and thick and bubble away. Taste and adjust for sweetness.

    1. It is super easy and so impressive looking. You will get a ‘wow’ for sure! And you either have a very small apartment or a very clean one.
