Dutch Babies are one of my family favorites. I grew up calling these “silly pancakes” with my family because of the fun shapes they make as they bake in the oven. They are super easy and delicious. It is definitely a fast family Saturday morning go-to in my family. You just mix 3 ingredients up in a blender, throw it in a pan with melted butter and let it bake. You can top them with lemon and powdered sugar, fruit, hot fruit with sour cream or yogurt, canned pie filling with lemon juice and cinnamon, plain old syrup or my favorite (because I grew up with a dad who thinks peanut butter is one of the food groups) peanut butter and syrup. We love breakfast for dinner at our house, and this is so simple that we definitely make these quite a bit. Enjoy!
1 cup milk
1 cup flour
1/3 cup butter
Place butter in pan and set in a 425 degree oven. While butter melts, mix batter quickly. Put eggs in a blender or food processor and whirl at high speed for 1 minute. With motor running, gradually pour in milk, then add flour; continue whirling for 30 seconds. Remove pan from oven and pour in batter. Return to oven and bake until pancake is puffy and golden brown – about 17 minutes.
I hope you enjoy making these at home. I imagine they’ll quickly become a family favorite in your world.
