Welcome to Week 7 of Fun with Food Friday!
Check The Not-So-Secret Confessions of a First Time Mom for another recipe review this week!Today I’m sharing another old favorite of mine, (also a favorite of friend and reader Amanda.)I have some great recipes waiting in the wings from you guys, including Mexican Black Bean Burgers and Creamy Turnip soup, and when I do my big monthly shopping trip next week, I’ll be picking up the ingredients I need for those!This is a quick and easy breakfast that’s more nutritious than a bowl of Chocolate Frosted Sugar Bombs for hurried mornings!We have started using this almost every Sunday morning. John usually cooks our breakfast on Sunday so that I can focus on getting the meal for our church’s weekly potluck made and then getting me and the girls ready to go. It’s quick and easy to throw together, and Katie likes it, so it doesn’t require the time-consuming battle to get her to eat it while we’re rushing around. Getting her to sit still and behave well in church goes much better if she’s eaten a good breakfast, so this has been a life-saver!Dutch Pancake(I’ve also heard this called a Dutch Baby, Swedish Pancake, and German Pancake. Who knows what it really started as?!)
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup flour (I usually use 1/2 whole wheat)
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 Tb. butter
Note: You can easily do two or more of these at a time in your oven, (as many as will fit!) and it makes a great breakfast for over-night company!
1.) Place the 2 Tb of butter into a 9 x 13 pan, turn the oven on to 425 degrees, and put the pan into the oven to heat and melt butter.
While the oven is preheating and the butter melting, in a mixing bowl or blender, combine remaining ingredients. It should be smooth, but don’t over-mix.
3.) When the oven is preheated and the butter completely melted, pour the batter straight into the hot pan.
4.) Bake for 20 minutes, or until it puffs and is getting golden brown:The pancake will start to deflate after you take it out of the oven, so get it to the table as soon as possible for more impressive presentation.
5.) Add your favorite toppings: butter, cinnamon & sugar, powdered sugar, honey, syrup, jam, whipping cream, berries, you-name-it!
|Katie’s favorite topping is honey!
