December 2, 2009 Special Birthday Breakfast
Because I am the best sister ever, I woke up early this morning (my sister’s birthday) and made breakfast for her. I think it is pretty safe to say that one of Rachel’s favorite, if not her most favorite, breakfast foods is the Dutch Baby pancake. I’ve made many Dutch Babies in my time, but I always find a fault with them: too eggy, too soggy, too buttery, etc. Finally, I found what seemed to be the BEST recipe yet, and it was, but I had a little trouble getting it out of the pan, so please excuse the not-so-prettiness of the pancake.

Push “mix” button, remove cover and add remaining ingredients; process until smooth. Pour into prepared pans and bake 20 minutes; then reduce heat to 350°F and bake 10 minutes. Slide onto hot plates.
