A Dutch Baby In The Oven? Sounds Like Hansel and GretelThis recipe is also called German Pancake. I think it goes way back to colonial America when the Germans emigrated, mainly to Pennsylvania, and were facetiously called "The Pennsylvania Dutch," because the Dutch had first come to New Amsterdam (New York.)
History lesson aside, this is quick, easy and fun. My sister-in-law gave me this recipe in the '70s, I think, probably from a Sunset Magazine. The recipe has changed somewhat over the years.
preheat oven to 400 degrees
place 10 inch frying pan with 3 tbs butter in oven to melt
|Love my tiny measuring cup.|
3 or 4 whole eggs
3/4 c white flour
3/4 c milk
|With a cup of coffee.|
We serve powdered sugar over it, but being made of eggs, it is versatile and cheese or mushrooms, or whatever your fancy dictates would be good over this souffle. You can put mushroom to fancy it up for dinner. Serves four.
