2 tb Butter; melted
1/2 c All-purpose flour
1/2 ts Salt
2 tb Lemon juice
1/2 c milk
3 Eggs; room temperature

Original recipe makes 4



This is a Sunday breakfast favourite around here! It also tastes nice with maple syrup, instead of the powdered sugar. Butter either one 12" ovenproof skillet, or four 6" ovenproof skillets (pie or cake pans may be substituted). Beat the eggs until thoroughly mixed. Add the milk and blend well. Sift together flour and salt, and add slowly but continuously to the egg mixture, whisking as you do so. Add the melted butter, and whisk til batter is smooth. Pour into pan or pans and bake at 450 for 15 minutes. The four small German babies will be done at this point. The one large one requires another 10 minutes of baking, with the oven reduced to 350. After removing from the oven, sprinkle with the lemon juice and dust with confectioners sugar. Serve at once while hot. MARPLE@CS.UBC.CA (KIRK MARPLE) REC.FOOD.RECIPES From archives.

Yum! These pancakes are so simple and delicious. I added a small splash of vanilla extra and poured the batter into a hot, buttered pan, then baked it for about 17 minutes. Powdered sugar and fresh lemon juice really complete the dish.

Since I've saved this recipe I think I've made these about ten times. They are really yummy and I usually eat them with maple syrup, though last time I used agave syrup and it was just as delicious.

I've made this recipe before and I came back to make it again and I'm unable to view the ingredients. Can someone post them?

This is a fantastic recipe for people who dont want to spend hours in the kitchen or who dont have very many ingredients intheir closets. Dutch babies dont take any time at all to prepare and they only need four ingredients

Made for a heavenly breakfast that packed a lot of "wow effect" for our guest. The real beauty of this impressive dish is that not only is it delicious, but it is extremely simple and is made with ingredients that you most likely already have on hand. While it was great topped with a squeeze of lemon and dusted with confectioners' sugar, it would be equally good topped with fresh fruit and yogurt, or slices of apple that have been sauteed in butter and sugar till tender, or just some warmed maple syrup.
