Well, I made the Baby…
…But I called it BIG PANCAKE! (also known as a “Dutch Baby”, apparently… because in Holland, the babies are born big, floury and sizzling hot)
See, that way I have an edge. Ted may make ORDINARY pancakes, but I can (now) make BIIIIIIIG pancake.
Utterly, utterly easy. Simple, and delicious. Served for lunch with powdered sugar, but YM had his with cottage cheese.
Whir the batter in the blender – 2 eggs, half a cup of flour, a couple more things (I halved the recipe). So simple.
Leave it to sit for half an hour.
Pour into cast-iron pan in which I’ve melted about 1/4 of a stick of butter.
Bake 10 minutes on bottom rack; 10 more minutes on top rack.
Boy, did it puff!
Slid out like a dream…
… and right out onto the plate!
Yummy! As close as you can get to a no-effort kid-pleasing lunch…
p.s. So this officially ends my dithering over the genre of my cast-iron pan: it is now a DAIRY pan. But I still have the small enameled cast-iron dutch oven, which is pareve. However, it slightly failed to do its job of baking a loaf of bread tonight, so I will blog about it another day.
