Serves 2-3 adults
Put a 10″ French skillet in a cold oven & then heat to 450*
In a blender mix;
1/4 c. all purpose flour
3/4 c. milk
1 t. vanilla extract
Blend for 30 seconds or so, until mixed & frothy.
Scrape down sides as needed.
4 T. butter, melted
2 bacon slices, diced
1/2 c. maple syrup
When oven is preheated, pour melted butter into the hot skillet & return to oven for a minute or two.
Gently pour batter into the hot skillet.
Bake about 15-17 minutes.
The Dutch Baby will bake & grow up the sides of the skillet. Edges will be browned nicely as it climbs
well above the skillet sides.
On the stove top;
In another 10′ skillet, cook bacon. Drain off grease & chop into bits.
Warm maple syrup & pour over hot Dutch Baby-
Squeeze fresh lemon juice over the top,
sprinkle with bacon & dust with powdered sugar-
I also add a little lemon zest to each serving.
