Some lazy mornings, a special breakfast seems in order. This dutch baby pancake – baked in a cast iron skillet – is simple to make and satisfying to fill. Some options: go sweet with applesauce and cottage cheese, or lemon juice and vanilla sugar. Or go savory with caramelized onions, mushrooms and greens.
This recipe is from Alton Brown, via The Food Network.
Preheat the oven to 375.
Put 2 T butter into a 10-inch cast iron skillet and put the skillet in the oven. Melt 1 T butter and set aside for 10 minutes to cool. (Or, use room-temperature butter and proceed without waiting.)
In a food processor or blender, whirl together 1/2 cup flour, 3 T sugar, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/3 cup milk and 2 large eggs. Blend for 30 seconds. Then pour the batter into the preheated skillet and baked for 35 minutes on the middle rack of the oven, until the edges are puffed and brown.
Serve with any fillings your heart desires.
