Dutch Baby Saturday Brunch

No comments:
This is no ordinary pancake... bring this out to the table at brunch and not only does it look impressive, but everyone can tuck in and it gives that wonderful feeling of everyone sharing something together.

I have had this for brunch a couple of times and have seen it in countless cookbooks but never thought it would be easy for me to replicate at home (I have never had much luck with yorkshire puds and this is basically a giant version).

This morning however I decided to finally give it a go and it is surprisingly easy, quick and came out better than I could have imagined!

To make this brunch dish look the part a skillet pan is really great, but any other pan that is completely oven proof will work just as well.

For a large pancake you will need...

3 eggs, 
1tbsp caster sugar 
150ml of milk (whole fat if you have it  - semi skimmed if not) 
100g plain flour 
1 tsp of vanilla paste

2 tbsp of melted butter  

Start by preheating your oven to 200C and placing your skillet or oven proof pan into the oven, next melt your butter and set this to one side. 

Now mix together your eggs and sugar until light and fluffy. Add in your milk and combine well, next add your flour and vanilla paste. Now, carefully using a mitt take your pan out of the oven and add in the melted butter followed by your batter, place back in the hot oven (don't forget to put your mitts back on to do this if you have taken them off to pour your batter!)

Now bake for about 15-20 mins until the pancake has puffed up to a glorious size, take it out of the oven and serve immediately with plenty of icing sugar and fresh berries. 

This is a brunch dish that is so easy, even if you have never been able to master yorkshire puds, I   promise, and is sure to impress at any table!
