You can make a small and cute baby (an "Itty Bitty Baby") using just one egg, or you can make a Big Baby with a dozen eggs and slice it into wedges. Regardless of the size baby you cook, the ratio of eggs to other ingredients is always the same:

Recipe Ingredients for Dutch Baby

1 tablespoon butter
1 egg
1/4 cup 2% milk
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon salt

Recipe Directions for Dutch Baby

  1. Heat the oven to 425 degrees. Determine the correct pan size for the amount of ingredients/servings you're making.

  2. Prepare the batter while the oven heats. Using a blender, combine the egg, milk, flour and salt until thoroughly mixed and the batter is smooth. (Tip: you can also substitute a spoonful or so of yogurt for some of the milk, to get a more tangy flavor.)

  3. Cut the butter into even chunks (1 tablespoon size or less) so it melts evenly. Place the butter in the appropriately sized pan. Heat the pan and butter in the oven until the butter is melted and the pan hot. For a nutty flavor, let the butter brown slightly but don't let it burn. Swirl the butter in the pan to coat the bottom and sides before pouring in the batter.

  4. Pour the batter into the hot pan and return the pan to the oven (be careful not to spill: the batter may swirl around a bit in the shallow pan as you move it).

  5. Bake until the pancake is puffed and golden. Allow 12 to 15 minutes for a 4-egg pancake. Smaller and larger pancakes' cooking times will vary accordingly. If you notice one side of the pan puffing up more than the other, turn the pan around about half-way through for more even cooking.

  6. Once out of the oven the pancake will begin to deflate. Serve it right away, adding any toppings as desired. For variety, add different flavorings to the batter, including herbs, sun dried tomato bits, spices and other seasonings. For a light Italian twist, try the "Un' Bambino" recipe below.
