Dutch Baby

Happy New Year! I decided to start off the year with an easy but satisfying recipe. A Dutch Baby (or a giant oven pancake) is a dramatic dish to bring to the breakfast table. Like a soufflé you want to be sure everyone is awake and at the table when it comes out of the oven as it will quickly deflate. While it will be delicious, it won't look as impressive.

This recipe is from the now out-of-print Sunset Easy Basics for Good Cooking cookbook. It just takes four simple ingredients and an unfussy method to pull together (you won't have the same stress that you would making a soufflé).

We serve it with homemade strawberry jam and whipped cream. You can keep it as simple as sprinkling the pancake with powdered sugar or you can offer maple syrup, honey, or even a fruit compote. Enjoy!
