Dutch Baby: An Easy To Make Breakfast Treat
There are some nights where I look in the fridge and I feel so uninspired for dinner. There may be a lot of random things in there and the pantry, but they don't really seem to come together and jump out at me as a full meal.
One such night, I looked in the fridge and I had a few mixed berries and some eggs and I thought, 'Hey, what about breakfast for dinner?' Instead of cereal and milk, I remembered that I had this recipe I had been wanting to try for a while, so that was the night!
The recipe was for a Dutch Baby. A Dutch Baby reminds me of a fluffy crepe. The eggs in it puff up in a Dutch oven and create a soft, pillowy cloud for you to top with powdered sugar, berries, Nutella, or whatever you like!
This recipe makes 4 servings and takes approximately 30 minutes to make from start to finish.
- 3 large eggs
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1/2 cup milk
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 tbsp butter
- powdered sugar
- jam, fresh fruit, or Nutella for serving
Step One. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Place the Dutch oven in the oven with the butter in it in order to let it melt. When it has melted (approximately 1-2 minutes later), take the Dutch oven out and swirl the butter around the bottom and sides of the dish.
Step Two. In a food processor, combine the eggs, flour, milk, sugar, vanilla, and salt. Blend until smooth. After it is blended, pour the mixture into Dutch oven and bake it for 18-20 minutes ( or until golden brown). After it's out of the oven, dust it with powdered sugar and top with your favorite ingredients.
Enjoy this super easy breakfast pastry that can be used on a "clean out the fridge" kind of night, or hosting a brunch with friends.
