Yummy morning breakfast...

DO YOU EVER get your kids involved in your breakfast making? I like to encourage as much help in the kitchen as I can get! Breakfast is one of those easy meals that kids usually like, you can have many helpers, and at least in my home gets our day off to a better start!

Until I married my husband I had never had 'Dutch Baby'. In my family we had 'Popovers', which I think are similar. However, I like the idea of making them sweet rather than savory. Although I do love popovers! I my home we've taken it one step further by adding cinnamon sugar at the end. So here we go...

Your Mom's Dutch Baby

1/4 cup butter
3 eggs
3/4 cups flour
3/4 cups milk

Turn on your oven to 425 degrees. Spray a 2-3 quart casserole dish. Place the 1/4 cup of butter in the casserole and place it in the oven as it pre-heats.
While the butter is melting I put all the ingredients into a mason jar.

Then I let my helpers shake...
Once your batter is 'shaken up' remove the pan from the oven and pour batter into the melted butter.
Put it back in to bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until 'puffed' and golden brown.
Then we sprinkle cinnamon sugar over the whole thing and dig in! Some like maple syrup too!
Enjoy your day!!
Just a note... here are your ratios if you have a larger crowd.
3 - 4 qt pan 1/3 cup butter, 4 eggs, 1 cup flour and milk
4 - 4 1/2 qt pan 1/2 cup butter, 5 eggs, 1 1/4 cup flour and milk
4 1/2 - 5 qt pan  1/2 cup butter, 6 eggs, 1 1/2 cup flour and milk.


  1. In Finland they make the same type of breakfast called pannukakku, my mom being of Finnish descent made this often for us and now that I am living in a Finnish community ~ someone usually brings this into work on the weekend. We eat our mostly with jam or fresh fruit. Thanks for sharing on Foodie Friends Friday and remember to come back and vote on Sunday.
