Some call this Dutch Babies, but I do think it is German. Personally, I think this is what a nice hostess makes to impress brunch guests. Prepare to make more than one batches; before you know it, it's gone and your guests will ask for more.
This is one simple version. You can always use fruits in season, add coulis to top, pipe fresh-whipped cream to crown, and dust with your favorite flavored sugar. Or, you can have a savory version with your chosen vegetables - steamed or stir-fried but just not too much liquid and add your family version of marsala or madeira reduction.
Your oven must be able to hold the temperature. Note that most ovens vary between the indicated and the actual temperature. I use a gas oven with a big stone tile that I add to its base to stabilize the distribution of heat.
Depending on how you would like the presentation to be, deflated or crown-shaped, baking time is either 20 or 25 minutes, consecutively.
For this version, you will need:
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup cold whole milk
a pinch coarse kosher salt
3 tablespoons cold butter
one pint strawberries, rinsed and pat dry
some confectioner's sugar for dusting
The pan that I used is a 9-inch pyrex pie pan.
Step 1: Ingredients: It's elementary
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. The temperature must reach this number to achieve the result as pictured. Meanwhile, in a mixing bowl, put together 3/4 cup all-purpose flour, 3/4 cup milk, 3 eggs, and a pinch coarse salt.
