If you want to wake people up in your home with warm smells from the kitchen, this is your recipe. While it looks like you have slaved over this non-traditional pancake recipe for an hour, truth is, you just whipped it up in less than 5 minutes in the blender (and it is so inexpensive to boot).
I love dutch babies because they feel special. I don’t know why, but they do. When I make them my kids say, “Wow, YUM Mom!” It must be the powdered sugar sprinkled over the top. I’m not sure, but this is as easy as it gets for breakfast fare.
You are well on your way to treating your family like valued guests with this winner.
Your family will feel like they went to bed and woke up in a Bed and Breakfast.
