Dutch Babies

Not sure why, but during this time of year, I love to cook and bake for my family.  I spend Monday's at home with Ashlee and usually try and make something special for our Mommy and Ashlee day at home.

Pancakes, waffles, french toast... sign me up - ALWAYS!  Love that stuff!  Dont you?  Well, here is another yummy to add to your list of must haves... the DUTCH BABY!

Dutch babies are also referred to as german pancakes.

The recipe is so simple:

4 eggs
1 cup of flour
1 cup of milk
1/2 stick of butter

Preheat your oven to 375 and let 1/2 stick of butter melt in a 13x9 pan while you mix up the ingredients.  Place eggs and milk in blender and mix; once mixed, slowly add in flour.  Once completely mixed, remove pan from oven and pour liquid mix into pan.  Return to oven for about 20-25 minutes, until you see the baby turning a beautiful brown.  Remove and serve with powdered sugar and lemon wedges.  My husband adds syrup to his as well :)

Trust me, this is an easy recipe that you and your family will just love!  Great for a saturday breakfast/brunch.

**Super cute note:  my friend's family made these as she was a child.  She couldnt remember their name so she called them "Baby Cakes".  ENJOY!
