New Year, New Giant Pancake (Dutch Baby)

Prep Time10 minsCook Time20 minsTotal Time30 mins

I don't understand the science of this recipe.   I don't know how a thin batter turns into fluffy, popover pastry that works its way up the side of your baking dish.  But we woke up this morning and I told my family we were having a surprise breakfast.   I had found this Dutch Baby recipe from the New York Times cooking app and woke up with an image of it already in my head.  Little did I know that my "surprise" would actually turn out as beautifully as the one I had seen -- maybe I shouldn't wonder too much about the science...it's baking magic.  Happy new year!        

 3 eggs
 ½ cup flour
 ½ cup milk
 1 tbsp sugar
 pinch of nutmeg
 4 tbsp butter

1

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

2

I used a mixer for combining the eggs, flour, sugar and nutmeg. My sense is that an immersion blender would work well, too.

3

Place your butter in your baking dish -- we used cast-iron, which released the pancake with ease. As the butter melts and bubbles, pour in your batter and bake for 20 minutes.

4

Top with fruit, jam, or maple syrup to your hearts content!
