Dutch Baby recipe

I mentioned this one yesterday, and figured I would post it this morning before I forgot:

Dutch Baby Pancakes (oven pancakes)

1/3 cup butter
4 eggs
1 cup milk
1 cup flour
3 tablespoons cinnamon sugar

In a deep pie plate, melt butter in a 425 degree oven. Blend eggs and milk, then add flour till it's thoroughly mixed. Pour batter onto hot butter and sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar. Bake at 425 for 20-25 minutes or until puffed and golden.

The recipe says to sprinkle with lemon juice and powdered sugar, but we just used the powdered sugar. This will NOT come out like you may expect LOL The outside will puff up tall and fluffy while the middle/bottom will be lower and flat.

I don't plan on sharing recipes here, but this one I just HAD to post since I loved it so much, and it uses 4 eggs at a time. I'm sure we aren't the only ones that get occasionally overrun with eggs and this is a great way to use a few up! Hope ya like it!

Do you have a food scale? If you do you could make a traditional pound cake, that'll use a pound of eggs (and flour and butter and...)

I love pound cake but Lisa isn't a big fan of it. I hate to have her spend time on something she won't eat, even though she does at times.

Hi Chris,
It sounds so good! I'll have to try it.
You are so lucky to live close to Lehman's. I would love to be able to walk around the store instead of just looking in the catalog. Would love it if they would open a store in our area in Wisconsin.

Lehmans is kind of a love/hate thing for me. I love going there and shopping, and I hate not being able to buy one of everything! lol

It's an even stranger place to see one saturday a month. Next door is a livestock auction and flea market. Buggies as far as you can see, it's sure an amazing sight. One of these days I gotta remember to take the camera for that.

One thing I really love about that place is you will see the owner out walking around and helping customers. It's nice to see that even as big as they have gotten, he is still a down-to-earth guy and knows where his business comes from. I've talked to him several times and he is one of the most humble men I have ever met, even with all the sucess of the store.

Okay, that is really like the simpliest recipe for pancake-type anything I've ever seen...I have to try it because some days I just don't want to stand over a hot stove flipping pancakes one at a time...this sounds GREAT. I'll make it on Sunday, thanks!!!
