Feeling Domestic

I love this recipe because it reminds me of the Dutch Babies my mom use to make. This is a healthy version of the same thing!
This morning I cooked them stovetop and they turned out awesome!

The healthy version!!

German Babies (also known as German Pancakes, Dutch Babies...)

Serves 2

3 eggs
1/3 c. flour
1/3 c. milk
Sometimes I add a little melted butter to the bottom of the pan to make the edges more crispy... but it is a little less healthy this way.

-Beat ingredients together
(my mom always said to not to over beat the eggs or something bad happens with the eggs, Dallas gets carried away sometimes though...and they still turn out okay!)

Original recipe calls for them to be cooked in the oven at 475 for 15-20 minutes. (9x13"pan)

Also can be cooked stove top (6-8"pan-I used cast iron) with a lid (for the hot summer days) on low to medium (closer to low), for about 15-20 minutes.
(I tried this for the first time this morning and they were awesome and my house isn't stifling hot from the oven being on.)

Served with Syrup or if your feeling a little more gourmet it is fun to drizzle lemon juice and sprinkle powdered sugar on top!

Good Luck!

Great tip to try stove top -- though I have to double that recipe to feed my little family so that might not be an option for us. I love the idea of lemon juice and powdered sugar too! NICE. Thanks!
