Baking a Dutch Baby

I love trying new recipes, especially when they are super easy and don't require a lot of ingredients or ingredients that are a bit obscure.  An old friend posted this recipe along with photos on her Facebook page so I thought I would give it a try (the photos posted here are my own).  The entree is called a Dutch Baby -- but everything about it seemed very French to me.  Similar to a soufflé but much easier! I made this for breakfast but it could easily be served at dinner as a side dish.  For breakfast; it's the main attraction.

 

Dutch Baby

To make one, you'll need the following ingredients:

  • 3 eggs
  • a pinch of nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 4 tablespoons of unsalted butter
  • powered sugar, cinnamon sugar, syrup or preserves (optional).

I learned a long time ago to always make sure your ingredients are room temperature so let your eggs and milk sit out on the counter for about 20 minutes before preparing.

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees
  2. Combine eggs, nutmeg, flour and milk and put in a blender until smooth.  I used a Magic Bullet and it worked great!
  3. Place 10-inch skillet in the oven (you can use a cast iron one but I used a Calphalon skillet) with the 4 tablespoons of butter.
  4. Let butter melt but do NOT burn the butter.
  5. Remove skillet from oven and pour in the batter.
  6. Bake at 425 degrees for 20 minutes then reduce oven to 300 degrees and bake for 5 minutes.
  7. Remove from oven and slice in to wedges (about four) and serve immediately. I put a little powered sugar on mine and served with fresh strawberries on the side.  It's such a beautiful presentation with little effort!
