Dutch babies

We had a brief exchange about Dutch babies here the other day which inspired me to make this favorite breakfast dish yesterday. They come out of the oven puffed and full of themselves but by the time they hit the plate they’re deflated to a thick, light-textured pancake.

We had these for the first time at the Five SeaSuns Bed and Breakfast in Port Angeles when we visited before moving here and ever since they’ve been a special treat. I like them with fresh berries and Greek yogurt. My recipe calls for sprinkling them with powdered sugar but if I want some sweet I’ll dab on preserves.

What about you? Do you have a favorite breakfast treat?

  1. First, I think we need the recipes for these little delights! My current favorite? Lemon ricotta pancakes or crepes of any kind. Both so easy to make and easier to devour.

  2. Very good Kay! I can taste them right through the monitor. They look beautiful.
    Favorite breakfast item: I am partial to Swedish Pancakes..the very best? Over in Bremerton at The Family Pancake House. I have sampled many all over and they are the best.

  3. ofcourse, i came over as soon as i saw your comment!!
    oooh, they look so pretty!
    i only have a square pyrex dish so it looks a little funny, but indeed, they are sooooo goood! the recipe i found is with lemon juice (sprinkle as much as you like when they come out of the oven. i found i like a lot of it.. 🙂 ) and then confectioner’s sugar sprinkled on top, it is an amazing taste…. hmmmm….
    first time i made them with buttermilk, second as the recipe, with normal milk. with buttermilk they dont rise that much, and the texture was slightly different; but both were equally good!
