I love breakfast, and as a result, my kids love breakfast, because I took great pleasure in making them pancakes, muffins, biscuits, omelets, and more pancakes when they were growing up.
Unfortunately, they are grown up, which means the opportunity to prepare them a morning culinary masterpiece is dissipating. Thank goodness I took the time this weekend to make Evan, who is soon leaving for college, a Dutch Baby. They are splendidly simple to create; the recipe only calls for butter, eggs, flour and milk (or heavy cream if you’re schwifty). And are they good.
I asked one of my classes of college students, How many of you have had a Dutch Baby before? Only one of them said Yes. How sad is that?
It’s time we all start baking each other Dutch Babies.
