This recipe for a Fruit Dutch Baby is so simple and tasty but it does use whole eggs. As you may have heard, the recommendations for introducing eggs are changing and many pediatricians are now saying the earlier the better. If you are already giving your little one whole eggs, then do give this one a try! Be sure to cut it into managable bits when you serve it! Truly a wonderful light egg souffle type of dish, this is very easy to make and well loved by every one who we know that has ever been served this. Apples are the best fruits to use however peaches and bananas do work nicely as well; strawberries not so much.
The only difficult thing about making this is trying to remember – DO NOT grab the frying pan out of the oven unless you are wearing oven mits!
1/3 cup butter or margarine
2 medium apples (or try a 1/2 cup peaches, thinly sliced or 1 thinly sliced banana)
2 teaspoons cinnamon
3 Tablespoons sugar
1 cup milk
1 cup flour
Preheat oven to 425°F.
Put butter into a 3 to 4 quart frying pan and place in oven to melt. While butter is melting, prepare fruits
Remove the pan from the oven and add cinnamon and sugar to the melted butter. Stir in the sliced fruit.
Put pan back into oven for about 3 minutes
Put the eggs and milk into a blender and whizz at high speed for about 1 minute.
Set the blender to low speed and slowly add the flour until well blended.
Remove the pan from oven and pour the egg batter over the butter and fruit.
Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the pancake is raised and golden brown.
Cut in wedges and dust with powdered sugar.
Don’t cry when it falls – I have spent much time crying over fallen Dutch babies and I can now tell you it’s not worth your tears! The baby will fall unless you are somehow a miracle gravity controller. I don’t have pictures of this one because it really does not look as lovely after it has fallen. Do I need therapy for this ?
If you do make this and it does not fall, please let us know and send pictures too!
Makes enough for 2 adults and 2 very hungry apple loving children. If you want to make this bigger, then add 1/2 of an apple, 1 Tablespoon sugar, 1 egg, 1/4 cup of milk, 1/4 cup of flour and a little more butter & cinnamon for each additional serving.
