we ate a baby for breakfast

When I saw Amy Karol's post about Dutch Babies and how easy and good they are, I had the urge to make one immediately. But since it was 11:30 pm and I was the only one awake, I decided to wait until this morning.

And it really is as easy as she says it is. I was impressed with how it looked, and I got some gratifying oohs and ahhs from Things 1&2 when it came out of the oven. We devoured it hot with lemon syrup and also maple. Next time I'll try one less egg and adding a dash of salt and vanilla in the batter and see how that turns out. Because when it is this easy and this good, there will indeed be a next time. I was reading some of the post comments and a few folks mentioned this is just like a Yorkshire pudding only you eat it with gravy. Good excuse to make one for dinner.

I try not to miss Amy's mouth-watering food posts. I've made several things from her tips and they've always been hits, including this soup which is now an oft requested family classic.


  1. fav! I had that for my birthday breakfast on monday! :-) We eat it with a squeeze of lemon, berries and powdered sugar. ;) SO good.

  2. Just so you know, I wanted to let you know, so we are all clear on that... I am Dutch and I cantell you that we don't actually eat babies... But this looks yummy!


  3. Lemon syrup sounds pretty damn good as well, never heard of that either!

  4. Maaike, LOL. Yes, why are these called Dutch Babies for pete's sake? I've also heard them called Dutch pancakes. But that's not nearly as fun.

    whyducks, my lemon syrup is heinously complex. First you combine powdered sugar and lemon juice. And this is the tricky bit, you warm it in the microwave for 15 seconds. It's not for the novice. :-)
