Dutch Babies (or the politically correct name: Oven Pancakes)

for one serving:
Put 2 tablespoons of butter/margarine in a pie/cake pan and place in a 450° degree oven to melt. While that’s melting, combine 2/3 cup milk with 2/3 cup flour and 2 eggs. Pour into the hot, melted butter and bake for 12 minutes. Top with syrup.

for 4-6 servings:
Put 4-6 tablespoons of butter in a 9×13 pan and place in a 450° oven to melt. Meanwhile, combine 2 cups milk with 2 cups flour and 6 eggs. Pour into hot pan and bake for 25-30 minutes.

I was first introduced to this recipe as a teenager when my mom took a “fancy” cooking class. It’s been a family favorite ever since. I think it would taste delicious topped with fruit, but the boys have always vetoed that idea.
