I have seen a lot of friends post that they make Dutch Babies and I have always been intrigued. I never had one and wasn’t really sure what they were but I found a recipe for Apple Dutch Baby in a discarded Better Homes and Gardens in our Connestee Library so I had to pull it out and try it.
Basically it is a puffed pancake, German pancake, American popover, or my personal favorite – a Hootenanny. The secret to this pancake is that it is cooked in the oven and as it cools it sinks in a bit that makes there perfect little space to hold some yummy caramelized fruit. To read more click here.
After the last power outage Chris got me a great Lodge skillet to use on the grill for the next outage. I have never been a great cast iron user but I am determined to get better at it and this was the first recipe to try out. I may never make regular pancakes again! These were the best and so easy. They are a great little breakfast entree and I am making them if we ever have company again.
