Dutch Baby Pancake


I remember seeing a heavenly puffy pancake over at Kim's - Liv Life Too blog and I've been craving one ever since.  This weekend presented the perfect opportunity to stay home and have a great breakfast.  Most of my mornings are way too busy and fueled only by caffeine, bad habit I know!  Sometimes we need to slow down even for a few minutes and fix a hearty breakfast.

I'm sure most of you are in holiday preparation overdrive, like myself.  So this week I will be making all easy stuff you can do in a hurry.  There is nothing worse than being over-stressed and hungry at the same time.  It can lead to eating a whole box of cookies and before the sugar even reaches your brain and you realize, "Oh no, what have I done."  Not that it's happened to me or anything.

Save yourself from the hard crash later and have a good breakfast!


Dutch Baby's - from Cooks Country
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup cornstarch
2 tsp. lemon zest
1 tsp. salt
3 eggs beaten
1 1/4 cups skim milk
2 tbsp. lemon juice
1 tbsp. butter, melted
1 tsp. vanilla 

Heat oven to 450 degrees, brush inside of 12" oven-proof skillet with 2 tbsp. of vegetable oil and place in oven for 10 minutes.

In a bowl mix together flour, cornstarch, lemon zest and salt.  In another bowl combine, eggs, milk, lemon juice, butter and vanilla.  Combine wet and dry ingredients and whisk until smooth.  Pour this mixture into the hot skillet and bake for 20 minutes.

Sprinkle with powdered sugar and more lemon juice if you wish.

I would have made this one fancy like Kim's with apples, but my husband was in such a hurry he ate the whole thing within minutes.  

Enjoy,

Gina

  12. I've never heard of Dutch Baby Pancakes before, but they look good! They almost look like yorkshire pudding to me. Mmm they look so good! I bet you can just dust with some powdered sugar or top with some fruit compote?

  20. Thanks for the mention Gina! Our Puffed Pancake was the first I've ever made and like you, I can't get enough of them. We've had ours a couple of times and Liv is requesting more. I like the addition of the lemon in yours and am thinking that I need to branch out!

  21. Hi Gina! I'm so glad to hear that you were able to take some time to make this over the weekend. We need to prepare better breakfast meals more often (if only we had more time!) This looks delicious. I've never made a dutch baby before, but I've only heard great things. Thank you for sharing this recipe. I hope you are having a beauty-filled afternoon!
