This made for a WOW! Like Bubbles we found it easy to make and delicious. The teenager said awesome! Being the only nutmeg fan here I used everyones favorite, cinnamon instead. A zmail from Annie assured me there was no need for baking powder and I followed her suggestion to add apples - melted some butter in a pan added three thinly sliced apples, some cinnamon and a tablespoon of brown sugar - added the apple mix to bottom of hot pan topped it with the batter. So appealing with the pouffed up sides and tasted as good as it looked! Tasted like a combination of pancakes, french toast and bread pudding! Three of us emptied the pan and were looking for more! Thank you AnnieCan for this old fashioned recipe that has been added to my Breakfast Buffet Cookbook - can't wait to serve it to my next 'over nighters' as well as for our special weekend breakfasts ... it's just that good!
Ooo la la! Made for company this morning and this recipe did not disappoint! (We did use Wisconsin maple syrup, not Canadian!!) Served with homemade applesauce, too. The recipe was easy and delicious. PAC fall 2012
This does puff up amusingly on the edges. But this is far too much nutmeg. I like nutmeg, but one teaspoon made the pancake taste toxic. I hate to waste food but I threw half of this away. Next time I will use a regular Dutch Baby recipe. Most Dutch Baby recipes contain a little salt, more sugar, and cinnamon or vanilla...with little or no nutmeg.
Yes this pancake does fluff up, then deflates when taken out of the oven. The recipe was easy to make. But when it came time to cut the wedges and remove they were STUCK to my pan. Needless to say the bottom of the pancakes were still in the pan. By the time I got them out they lost all appeal, but decided to taste them so I could give them a review on taste. I put a wedge on my sons plate with syrup, he took one bite looked at me and said "this is not good mommy, you can throw mine in the trash" he is 3 1/2yrs. and a really good eater "usually". I personally thought they were ok, wouldn't want to eat them again but they were not horrible, They taste like a weird textured french toast.
Proportions of ingredients are perfect - cooks beautifully in the time given with no sticking. One of the few 3 egg recipes around and it satisfied 1 adult, a 3 year old and 6 year old for an easy weekend brunch.
This is so easy to make and so delicious! It surprised me that it puffed up so much but it was definitely fun and something different to try. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
