Dutch Baby Pancakes

I recently mentioned Dutch baby pancakes in a previous post. One friend wanted the recipe for the "fancy pancakes," which is kinda funny as Dutch babies are neither terribly fancy or very complicated. Basically a big popover, these are easy to make and delicious.

Dutch Baby Pancake

1 tablespoon butter
3 eggs
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon salt

Place butter in a 10 inch ovenproof skillet and put in a 400 degree oven for 3-5 minutes or until the butter melts. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk eggs until combined. Add flour, milk, and salt to the eggs and beat until smooth. Pour mixture into the hot skillet. Bake 25 minutes or until puffed and well browned. Top with sliced fresh fruit, jelly or preserves, maple syrup and butter, or powdered sugar and whipped cream.
