Dutch Baby Pancake

We used to go to the Pancake Pantry every once awhile when I was growing up back in Michigan.  I miss breakfast places like that... In KY breakfast is slightly more southern than fancy pancakes.  I miss fancy pancakes!  I miss sweets for breakfast!  I'm sure that I had a dutch baby pancake at some point, but really I remember getting the apple pancakes the most often.  This morning I just had to have a dutch baby pancake!

Since, its almost Valentine's day I made a powdered sugar heart on D's.  Awww, isn't that cute!  Instead of syrup, I heated up some frozen berries and added a little splenda to sweeten them.

Dutch Baby Pancake (from Smitten Kitchen)

4 eggs
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup flour, sifted
2/3 cup milk
2 tablespoons soft butter (I somehow forgot to add this and guess what it came out just fine! So for less calories just forget this part)

Heat oven to 400°F. Butter two 9-inch cake pans well. Put eggs in blender container, cover and process until light yellow in color. Remove cover and add remaining ingredients; process until smooth. Pour into prepared pans and bake 20 minutes; then reduce heat to 350°F and bake 10 minutes. Slide onto hot plates.

  • Make sure to either butter your pans really well or use non-stick spray.  One of my pancakes came out perfect the other.. was a pile of mess.. that tasted amazing!
