Dutch Baby Pancake #SundayBrunch



Today was an absolutely gorgeous day in Western Washington. I mean the kind of day that makes you want to run outside as soon as you get up! I grabbed some coffee and immediately knew that I wanted to make a nice breakfast that we could enjoy out on the patio.

As I ran through ideas in my head I thought about making my Oven Baked Dutch Apple Pancake. We both love that recipe and it is one that shows up on our Sunday brunch menu quite often.

Then I remembered that I had some leftover berry compote in the fridge from the Brown Sugar Waffles with Warm Berry Compote and Maple Whipped Cream I had made last week, and the light bulb went off in my head! Why not combine the two recipes to make one fantabulous one?



When Kevin came into the kitchen to make breakfast, as is the usual routine now that he works nights, I handed him a cup of coffee and shooed him out of the kitchen. 

He of course wanted to know why.

“Because I am going to make you breakfast today”
“Well, what are you going to make?”

“It’s a surprise”

“What is it?”

“Do you not get the whole surprise idea?”

“But…..fine, let me know when it is ready”

SHEESH!! I swear sometimes he is worse than a kid!

In the end he was very happy that he was a good boy and listened to me because we had a wonderful breakfast outside enjoying the beautiful weather and each other’s company!


Dutch Baby Pancake  

3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup warmed milk
Salt
1 tablespoon sugar
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons butter


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Place a pie dish, or cast iron skillet, in the oven.

Whisk the eggs, vanilla, and milk together until creamy and light yellow. Add the flour, sugar, and salt and whisk vigorously until smooth.

Open the oven and carefully put the butter into the pan. When the butter has melted, remove the pan and swirl the melted butter around the pan. Gently pour the batter into the center of the pan.

Return the pan to the oven, and bake for 20 minutes, or until puffed and golden.

Serve with Warm Berry Compote, Huckleberry Syrup, powdered sugar, or any of your favorite pancake toppings.

Serves 2 to 4

ENJOY!
