Sweet dreams are made of this. Travel the world and the seven seas. Everybody’s searching for something. That “something” is a Dutch Baby. Congratulations, you’ve found the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Turns out it was a cast iron skillet all along.
The art of the Dutch Baby is as ancient as the early 1940’s. This mad scientist creation combines the best qualities of a pancake, crêpe, and omelette. Dr Frankenstein wishes, on his best day, that he could make something as glorious as this.
Once baked the Dutch Baby is traditionally served with powdered sugar, maple syrup, and a squeeze of lemon. Now don’t turn up your nose at the lemon. It adds a really nice fresh component to the dish. Give er’ a try!
