This was a lovely recipe Ice Cool Kitty. I halved the recipe for dh and myself and made the baby in two smaller pans. The baby was light, tender, puffy and delicious. My picky dh loved it. I served his dutch baby with maple syrup and garnished mine with lemon and icing sugar...they were both excellent. Thanks for sharing a new family favorite.
