Spring Walk Through the Shire and a Dutch Baby Pancake!

I am still amazed that I live here. Spring really shows off in the Shire! Michael made this yummy Dutch baby pancake this morning. With a little powdered sugar and a squeeze of lemon from our neighbors tree, it was so custardy, tangy, buttery with a light sweet flavor. Enjoy!
Dutch Baby Pancake
Preheat oven to 425
Whisk together until smooth:
1/2 c milk
1/2 c flour
1/4 c sugar
2 lg eggs
Melt in a 10" skillet (we use a 9x13 pyrex because we double the recipe)
1/2 stick unsalted butter
Coat the sides of the pan with the butter by tilting
Pour in mixture and bake until the pancake is puffed and golden, about 12-15 min and serve immediately.


  1. Looks very similar to a pan cake that's my husband's grandmother's recipe from Finland. 12 cups of flour? Is that supposed to be a half cup?

  2. Ha, ha...YES, only 1/2 cup flour! :) Thank you!
