DUTCH BABY BASE INGREDIENTS:
1 Stick of BUTTER
6 EGGS, room temp.
1 1/2 cup - MILK we use Half & Half at room temp. (for Dairy free we use Almond or Soy milk)
1 1/2 cup - FLOUR we use unbleached all-purpose flour (For Gluten Free we use Namaste Perfect Flour blend)
Pinch of SALT
POWDERED SUGAR to garnish
Granite Hills Inn addition options:
3 TB SUGAR (or a few drops of Stevia Liquid)
Dash of ground NUTMEG
Dash of GINGER Powder
2 Teaspoons of VANILLA Extract
Approx. 1/4 Teaspoon of LEMON Extract
Apple Slices, Pear Slices, Plums, Strawberries. Brown Sugar and extra butter over the top before putting into oven, makes it like a sticky bun.
Plan Ahead if you can, This recipe works better if you set out your cold ingredients early to warm up to room temperature. Preheat Oven to 425 degrees. We use a 12 inch cast iron skillet that Grandma Frankie gave to us. (You can use a 9x13 casserole dish or two pie plates and split the recipe into the 2 dishes.) Put stick of butter into the skillet and place in oven to melt while it is heating up.
First, in mixing bowl start with the EGGS and beat very well with wisk. Get them nice and frothy. Then, add the MILK and mix very well again. Next add the FLOUR and SALT, stir until all flour is incorporated in to the mix, leaving no lumps. At this point you could add more ingredients, OR pull skillet out of oven and swirl the butter to coat bottom and sides of pan. Then pour batter into pan. Place back into oven and bake for about 25 minutes.
We hope you enjoy making and eating these as much as we and our guests do. Please send us your variations we would love to know how you enjoy this recipe.
