Ingredients: Metric Units
3 eggs
1/2 c. milk
1/2 c. flour
1/2 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. butter, melted

Also known as "German Babies" or "Dutch Babies" (and there's how rumors start...) this egg dish resembles Hootenannie. Serve it right out of the oven while it's still puffed dramatically high.

Note on preparation: these directions use a mixing bowl, but you can prepare it in a blender as well.

You will need: a skillet that can go in the oven

Preheat oven to 450F.

Spray a large, ovenproof skillet with nonstick spray.

In a large mixing bowl, beat eggs. Add milk and beat well.

Take a square of waxed paper and crease it into quarters. Unfold, and then sift the flour and salt onto the waxed paper.

Gently add the flour mixture into the egg mixture. Whisk away any lumps.

Stir in the butter and then pour the mixture into the prepared skillet.

Bake 15 min. at 450F.

Then reduce heat to 350F and bake an additional 10 minutes.

Serve immediately (while it's still puffed up and impressive!). Sprinkle with powdered sugar or drizzle with maple syrup or dust with granulated sugar or add a dollop of jam...yum!
