Nice alternative to ordinary pancakes.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 450°F
  2. Beat together eggs and milk until well blended. Add the flour and salt; stir with a fork until just combined. The batter will be a little lumpy.
  3. Melt butter in an oven-proof 12-inch skillet, preferably seasoned cast iron. When the butter sizzles, add the banana slices. Pour the batter on top.
  4. Place in the oven and bake for about 20 minutes, until the pancake is puffed up and golden.
  5. Drizzle the lemon juice over the top, then sift powdered sugar over all. Serve immediately.
  6. Variation: You may substitute 2 sliced peeled tart apples for the bananas. Saute the apple slices in the butter and season with 3 tablespoons sugar, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon and 2 tablespoons lemon juice before adding the batter.

This both looked and tasted really good. I cut down the amount of butter to just under half though, and then rubbed a little on the top of it when it came out of the oven. I did actually use a tablespoon or so of brown sugar over my bananas, which was good. Also, I didn't realize I was out of powdered sugar, so I ended up using a little cinnamon & sugar over the top..I will make this again, for sure, but next time I will use the suggested lemon and powdered sugar on top..I think that will be even better.

I love Dutch Babies and this was made a very hearty breakfast for the 2 of us. Smart Balance spread was used instead of the butter and only about 2 tablespoons. Egg substitute was used for the eggs and the banana was reduced to 1. This was cooked in a well seasoned 6-inch cast iron skillet. I do think that sprinkling a tablespoon or so of brown sugar over the bananas would be delicious. Made for *PAC Spring 2008*
