Dutch Baby German Pancake – Delicious pancake that bakes up perfectly in the the skillet. Enough to share with the family. Top with fresh fruit, syrup, powdered sugar or whipped cream.
I’ve been noticing dutch babies all over the place and never cared much about trying them. You see I’m not much of a pancake girl. I know there’s lots of pancake lovers out there and you probably want to bite my head off right now. I’m sorry. But I’m just gonna say it. They’re usually boring.
I know you can add things to make them fun like blueberries, peanut butter or chocolate chips. But I’d rather add blueberries, peanut butter or chocolate chips to my cookies or muffins.
So a friend told me that she makes a dutch baby for her family and they really enjoy it. I figured I had to give it a go. Well, new love. Step aside smoothies. There’s a new plate in town. And she’s golden and gorgeous and baked to perfection.
OK. Maybe that’s a wee bit over the top. But I do love these things. They complete a lazy Saturday morning for me.
Now, I have to tell you only 3 out of the 5 of us gave this rave reviews. The other 2. Well….they’re just losers. More for us. You wanna come over next Saturday and help us eat one?
I’m just teasing. I love everyone in my family to the moon and back and they all know it. But golly I will not fall apart in tears just because there’s more Dutch baby for me.
I’m so glad I decided to try something new once again.
Do you like to try new things? Do you have a usual breakfast on the weekends?
