This recipe is so named because the cinnamon sugar topping makes this pancake both look and taste a bit like an elephant ear from a carnival. Be sure to check it after 15 minutes of cooking and then every five minutes after that. Since some ovens run hotter than others, I've found it can definitely change the cooking time required.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425. Mix the eggs, flour and milk in a blender on medium speed until just blended. Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a 12-inch cast-iron skillet. Pour the batter into the skillet over the melted butter.
  2. Place the skillet in the oven and bake until the top is puffy and golden brown, about 20-25 minutes.
  3. Melt the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter. When the dutch baby is done, spread the butter over it with a pastry brush. Then sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar. You can cut the dutch baby into equal servings, but in our family, we like to put the whole thing on a large plate and just tear pieces off (again like an elephant ear!) :-).
