Dutch Babies are a favorite in our family for birthday, graduation and “special day” breakfasts. Light, satisfying and easy to make!
Step 2: Topping your delicious creation:
Step 3: Directions:
Preheat oven to 475 degrees. Your Dutch Babies will not rise properly if they do not go into a HOT oven
Place the butter in the pie or cake pan, put in hot oven for butter to melt. It is important that both butter and pan are HOT when you pour in the batter.
Pour batter into hot buttery pans and bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until nicely golden brown.
Step 6: Once it bakes...
Slide out immediately onto a plate, and sprinkle with powdered sugar and a few squeezes of lemon, or any other favorite topping.
**Notes on baking: Your Dutch Babies should puff up beautifully if you have maintained a hot oven, but will still taste delicious even if not quite perfect.
Popovers of this type have no leavening agent, so they rely strictly on steam to make them raise. If the oven temperature is too low, the batter starts to set before the water in the batter turns to steam and they will be a little doughy.**
