Dutch baby pancakes

With the kids all out of school I am sort of feeling like a short order cook. I made this yummy breakfast today though and they all gave it a thumbs up! Way better than those expensive breakfast cereals.
Dutch Baby Pancakes
9 eggs, well beaten
1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 ts. salt
1 1/2 cups milk
Beat eggs thoroughly and add four and salt. Continue to beat and add the milk while beating. Pour into a well-buttered pan and bake for 25 minutes on 375 degrees. Serve topped with bananas and strawberries and dusted with powdered sugar.

That looks really good. I think I will make that for my family tomorrow morning. Thanks for the Idea

mmm....sounds YUMMY. I will have to try this, I bet I can even get my Dad to eat it ( he had throat cancer and lost the ability to swallow/eat. Now he is much better and slowly eathing things but has no appetite, we are trying to get him to eat more by making yummy things).

We eat Dutch Babies, but I've never heard of topping them with bananas and strawberries. Yummm...

We have 13 of us living at home right now, and we NEVER eat cold cereal. Let me know if you need any other big-family breakfasts. My kids LOVE Baked Oatmeal. (This is NOT your regular mushy oatmeal.)

That is one of our favorites too - but I toss everything in the blender. We top ours with berries and whip topping for a special breakfast. It is our traditional 4th of July breakfast w/blueberries and strawberries and whip cream.

Yummy! I'm about to stop feeding our family cereal - YIKES they are costing us a small fortune!!!!

I can make this vegan for us and gluten free - YUMMY! I'll let you know how it turns out!

Thanks for sharing!

FYI - even if you dont' win the make-over I will do it for you! Only if you worries if you want Danielle to do it :)

That's what friends are for!

Love you,

How can I possibly talk about the pancakes when I can't get over how beautiful Aleigha looks in that photo??

Amy, that child is stunning!!!

Oh, and the pancakes look good, too. ;-)

In a Finnish household, this would be called Krupsu (spelling is probably totally off). It's one of our families favorites. Getting it to be non-lump ridden can be difficult, but it is SOOOO yummy!

Chantelle said...

Sounds Yum! (but I'll try it with syrup) ;)

I love this post and thanks for the recipe. I have been feeling like that too and having dutch pancakes for dinner, just made me a cooler mom. THANKS!!!!!

Amy said...

Some of the kids wanted "breakfast" for supper so I made your recipe. They loved it! Thanks for sharing it.

This looks so delicious. Thanks for sharing! We only had 4 eggs so I had to make a store run and I'm hoping to try it out tomorrow!

I also wanted to tell you that your family blesses me so much. It's weird to say since I've never actually met any of you. I just think you all totally rock! Through ups and downs, you all seem firmly grounded in joy. Glory to Jesus!

And one question that I've had for months is "How do you look SO young?!?!?!"

Many Blessings to the Blocks!
