What's cooking? Wednesday - Dutch Babies

Despite the odd name, this is a really great recipe.  And, it meets my most important qualifications - it's quick, easy and cheap.  Try it for a brunch, light lunch or dinner.  My kids love it!

Dutch Babies

1/4 c. butter
Put butter in 9 or 10 inch pie plate or oven-proof frying pan (cast iron is best).  Place pan in 425 degree oven until butter melts and gets bubbly. 

While butter is melting, combine the following -
3 eggs
1 1/2 c. milk
6 T. sugar
3/4 c. flour
1/4 t. salt

Beat ingredients until smooth.
Remove pan from oven and immediately pour egg mixture all at once in the hot pan.
Return pan to oven and bake in 425 degree oven for 30 minutes.
When done, sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve with fresh fruit. 
I picked these berries from my garden this afternoon! 


  1. Oh My Gosh!!!! I have been thinking about dutch babies lately! Thanks for posting that recipe. :-)

  2. We did Dutch babies -- literally, in a Dutch oven -- over the campfire on our last trip. It was difficult regulating the temperature, and they didn't quite turn out the way they do in a regular oven. But still a fun way to make them!

  3. Wow! I bet they tasted good though!

  4. I'm making this for breakfast tomorrow!

    1. You know, maybe I'll make it too! I don't have any fresh fruit (except apples) but canned peaches work well also. I hope it turns out well for you!
