Dutch Babies

These are another recipe from my neighbors front steps. Dutch Babies are sometimes called German Pancakes or a Dutch Puff. It puff sup all light and fluffy and then  the middle falls to so it is dense and gooey. They have a velvety butter flavor and are sweet but not to sweet. Maddie loves them best sprinkled with cinnamon sugar.  It is so not low calorie yet so delicious!! Plus it a snap to prepare. 

Dutch Babies

4 eggs beaten
1 c. milk
1 c. flour
1 tsp. cinnamon
1tsp. vanilla
1/4 c. sugar
1/4 c. butter 

Mix all ingredients except butter in large bowl. Preheat oven to 425* place 1/4 c. butter in a pie plate our square pan. (this is our dutch baby pie plate, my husband brought it for me in Las Vegas of all places. I adore it and have never made them in anything else.)

Place in oven while it preheats to melt the butter. Remove  from oven when butter is melted and pour in the batter. The sides will start to cook right away.

 Return to the oven and bake about 20 minutes or until golden brown.

Slice and serve with syrup, powdered sugar, cinnamon sugar, fresh fruit or preserves.
