This is an easy but delicious breakfast, impressive looking and fun to eat. There are so many ways to serve it! With jam, with berries, with syrup, or my favorite...powdered sugar and lemon juice.
My dad passed away a few years ago, and I miss him all the time. When I make this breakfast it reminds me of him, and the good times we had. It also reminds me of how much I love butter!
This is a breakfast to enjoy, something special. Don't over-think the butter. Just make it. You'll love it! Here is Dad's recipe.
3/4 cup milk
3/4 cup flour
1/4 cup butter
Pre-heat oven to 425*
Put butter in a cast iron skillet (10", I think) Place pan in the heated oven until butter is melted.
Meanwhile, put eggs into a blender and mix for 1 minute.
While blender is still going slowly pour in the milk. Add the flour, and run for 30 seconds more.
Pour over melted butter, and put in the oven. Bake 25 minutes.
It will puff a LOT!
The edges and top should get some nice color, but not too dark. When you remove it from the oven it will fall. This is normal.
The sooner you eat it the better! Don't let it sit around! We cut ours in half, but you can cut out wedges, or pour the ingredients into two smaller cast iron pans for individual sized Dutch babies.
A sprinkling of lemon juice and powdered sugar and we were ready to dig in!
So delicious!!! I LOVE this breakfast! A great weekend treat! Plus I'm easily amused, and I like to watch it puff up! I also lick my plate when I'm done. Don't judge. You'll see!
Try making a Dutch baby this weekend, and make some family memories of your own!
