Putting on the finery

MOM - take this off!

And DKM is making Pancakes!

Dutch Baby

Jimmy’s Dutch Baby Pancakes – Found on Orangette

For the pancakes:
4 Tbs unsalted butter
4 large eggs
½ cup all-purpose flour (I used rice flour)
½ cup half-and-half

For the topping:
4 oz butter
Juice of 1 lemon (I used a Meyer lemon – oh so tasty)
Powdered sugar

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Divide the 4 Tbs butter between two 6-inch cast-iron skillets, and melt it over low heat.

In a blender, whir together the eggs, flour, and half-and-half.

Pour the batter into the skillets over the melted butter. Slide the skillets into the oven, and bake for 25 minutes.

Remove the puffed pancakes from the oven, transfer them to a plate or shallow bowl, and pour on clarified butter, sprinkle on lemon juice, and dust with powdered sugar. Serve immediately.

Serves two.
