Dutch Babies

We eat breakfast at our house, every single day! And if it's cereal my kids think they're being mistreated! Frugal Upstate started a series on Frugal Food and part 1 will be about the egg. We love eggs around here and I have a recipe that I want to add to her list. I plan to check out all of the submissions that she receives. Perhaps we'll add another favorite to our breakfast menu.

Dutch Babies

~~Place 1 stick of butter in a 9x13 pan and place in 425* oven.
note: If times are tough you can cut the stick in half and it will work!

~~In blender combine:
2 cups flour
2 cups milk
8 eggs
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla (again, you can skip the vanilla if need be)

~~Pour into melted butter and return to oven for 20-25 min.

~~Cut into squares and serve with butter and syrup, powdered sugar, or even fruit, or fruit syrup. We always add peanut butter, but that's just us.

~~This will puff up in pan.

This sounds so delicious! And a great way to use up eggs, of which I currently have a surplus. Found your link through the Frugal Upstate egg page.

This sounds a bit like a yorkshire pudding, which Yankee Bill LOVES.

Thanks so much for participating in Egg week.

My mom made something almost exactly like this when I was growing up. We loved it. Thanks for sharing.

We make Dutch babies, sometimes with fresh berries sprinkled across the top before baking. I have an apple version I do in fall that is delicious. And I like it plain sprinkled with some powdered sugar and a bit of lemon juice.

Yummy, Renee! :-)

I'd not thought to bake the berries right in there. I'll have to try that. I'm sure we'd like it. I do like to make a strawberry syrup to top it. Lemon juice and powdered sugar sounds yummy!

Sounds as though lots of people enjoy this recipe or did as they were growing up.
