INGREDIENTS
  • Cooking Time: 40 Minutes
  • Servings: 3 - 4
  • 3 eggs
  • ½ cup flour
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • Syrup, preserves, confectioners' sugar or cinnamon sugar
DIRECTIONS
  1. 1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. 2. Combine eggs, flour, milk, sugar and nutmeg in a blender jar and blend until smooth. Batter may also be mixed by hand.
  3. 3. Place butter in a heavy 10-inch skillet or baking dish and place in the oven. You can also add apple slices with cinnamon and sugar to the pan.

RECIPE BACKSTORY
As a kid, my dad was always in the kitchen cooking up delicious meals. One of my favorites is dutch babies. It’s a large, fluffy pancake that can be served with fresh ricotta, berries, fruit, maple or ginger syrup- the options are endless! It’s perfect for a lazy Sunday breakfast on the porch. What I love about this recipe is it’s so easy and takes about 5 minutes to prepare. Just throw all the ingredients in a blender and pour into a skillet or muffin tray with sizzling butter and voila 25 minutes later you have a little slice of heaven on your plate.
