This has absolutely nothing to do with today's recipe. Just me rambling on! :)
1 cup flour
1 cup milk
1 stick (1/2 cup) salted butter
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place the stick of butter in a 9x13 inch glass baking dish, and put in the oven while it preheats, to melt.
Beat eggs and milk together. Whisk in flour, salt, and vanilla. There will be little lumps, no worries!
When your oven is preheated, and the butter fully melted, remove dish from the oven, pour batter in, and return to the oven. Bake 25-30 minutes, till golden brown. Remove, cut up, and serve hot, with jam or syrup.
Apparently this funny little breakfast concoction has lots of different names! Dutch baby, German pancake, Yorkshire pudding, fat eggs (???) but I was raised calling it a hootenanny. Isn't that a fun word?? We would always yell it as my Mom pulled it out of the oven. Go ahead, call it out, as loud as you can, I dare you. I'd bet you you'll smile!
I actually made a half recipe, just enough for me and the boys. It's simple, easy, and delicious. Golden, buttery, eggy deliciousness! The perfect breakfast to throw together when you want something special, but don't want to spend hours in the kitchen.
I usually have it with syrup, but I had some apple butter left... and it was a scrumptious pairing!!
Those buttery crispy bits on the bottom are my absolute favorite. Yum!!
