I’ve been spotting lots of Christmas trees almost everywhere I go and we’ve been talking about getting one soon. As much as I love Fall – the time when sweaters are finally pulled out from storage – but I have to say that Fall is that time when we need to keep our budget closely. There were lots of birthdays (yay, eat more cakes!) in the family that happen in the Fall/Winter, plus we need to get ready for Christmas gifts and upcoming celebrations. I am excited, though my wallet is not. Fall also means I need to cook smarter and budget-friendly.
As currently we are being bombarded with holiday shopping, shenanigans, and sweet recipes… I am trying to take a step back and chill a bit before the real holiday countdown begins. Like, having this german pancakes for breakfast. This is one of my favorite breakfast items. Not only it’s budget-friendly, but this is so easy to make and tastes soooo good! Basically, you don’t need to spend extra bucks for this because all the ingredients are pretty much already in your pantry. Plus you get a bonus point for sharing this pancake with the family.
Thanks to Shelby Ruttan and Caroline Williams for hosting SundaySupper this week. I really enjoyed this german pancake. And of course, breakfast has to be fun, right? And a bit snow won’t hurt at all! In fact, I had too much fun taping this and watching it over and over again.
Dutch Baby Pancakes (German Pancakes) #SundaySupper
- 3 large eggs
- 1/2 cup a.p. flour
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 cup milk
- 2 tbs butter
- 2 tbs fresh lemon juice
- 2 tbs confectioners' sugar for dusting
- Preheat the oven to 400F.
- In a blender, combine the eggs, milk, flour, vanilla and salt; cover and process until smooth.
- Place cast-iron skillet over medium heat and stir butter until melted. Continue to cook, slightly simmering, until butter foams, stirring often. Once butter forms toasty brown bits, becomes a golden caramel color, and has a warm nutty aroma, pour in the batter.
- Cook for 3-5 minutes and bake in the oven until puffed and golden brown, about 25-30 minutes more.
- Add lemon juice to pancakes and sift the confectioners' sugar over the pancake.
- Serve immediately in the skillet with maple syrup or your favorite fruits or jams.
