I am loving the cast iron skillet Dave got me for my birthday. You'll want one too in order to make this fantastic breakfast recipe. A Dutch baby (or German Pancake) is baked in the oven, leaving you free to make the rest of breakfast or to sit down with coffee + the crossword puzzle rather than spending time flipping pancakes.
Recipe from Food & Wine.
-3 large eggs
-1/2 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
-1/3 cup sugar
-Pinch of salt
-2/3 cup all-purpose flour
-2/3 cup milk
-2 cups raspberries
-2 cups blackberries
-4 tablespoons unsalted butter
-Confectioners' sugar, for dusting
Preheat the oven to 425.
|In a large bowl whisk together the eggs, lemon zest, salt and sugar.|
Add the flour and milk. Whisk until combined.
Gently fold in the berries.
|Melt the butter in the skillet.|
Once melted, pour in the batter.
Bake 22 minutes or until golden brown.
|Serve with powdered sugar if desired.|
This turned out beautifully! I wish that we had guests over for brunch when I made this because it seemed too good to have as a simple weekend breakfast for Dave and me. Together we devoured half of this and the leftovers kept well for breakfast the next day. The berries were tart and the powdered sugar added a hint of sweetness. Perfect with a cup of coffee, no syrup needed.
