Dutch Baby Pancake ~ together we will change the world!

6 ingredients.
SIX.

Easy?
Yep.

or Saturday

or that odd Thursday when no one has school or work
you know...whenever


You'll be a hero.  Heroine. A super mom.
Your family will stagger from their beds, hair standing on end, mumbling,
"Wow, what is that fabulous smell?"


The planets will align.
The dog and cat won't fight.
But NO mass hysteria, I promise.


And for a brief, shining moment, the whole world will be right.


Because this is the stuff pancake dreams are made of.


 One bite and you may just hear the hallelujah chorus being sung by fat cheeked cherubs.


Euphoria on the end of a fork.



But don't take my word for it, don your supermom cape and give it a whirl.
Your family will thank you.


And possibly build a statue in your honor.
Fuzzy slippers and bathrobe optional.


Dutch Baby Pancake Mix

·         1 cup flour
·         1 tsp. cinnamon
·         1/4 cup sugar
·         1 cup milk
·         4 eggs
·         1/3 cup butter


Place butter in a 9” cast iron skillet or round baking dish. Set in a 425° oven until the butter melts.
Mix the dry ingredients together in a small bowl.
Whisk together milk and eggs.  Stir in dry mix and blend well.
Remove skillet from oven and pour in the batter.
Bake at 425° for 20 – 25 minute or until puffed and golden.
It will deflate a little when it cools.  Top with maple syrup or powdered sugar.  Both totally optional.
adapted from Gooseberry Patch Merry Mixes

Just a note...

If you use a breakable baking dish, you must be careful not to thermoshock it.
I suggest pouring just a little of the pancake batter in and
swirl it around before pouring in the remainder.

Also, in the pictures, I used an 8 inch deep dish pie stone...
so it was a little dense, but still delectable!

Let me know if you give it a try...and if you love it as much as we do.
I'd even like to see your supermom cape! :)
