Who can resist a name like this? I have no idea why this oven pancake is called Dutch Baby, and the Canadian Living web site gives no explanation whatsoever. I was intrigued, though, and decided to have this for dinner last night. I used to have a great recipe for Finnish Apple Pancake, which was similar, only used apples and was more fluffy...Alas I didn't get custody of that cookbook when I got divorced...Ah, well.
The recipe for Dutch Baby, which appears in the March 2009 issue of CL, can be found here. Making this was simple and fast, and it turned out great!
As I was making this and watching it bake - a fascinating process, actually - I was struck by how similar this is to Yorkshire Pudding. And, indeed, it actually tasted a lot like Yorkshire Pudding, too.
The serving suggestion involved icing sugar and lemon, but who are we kidding here? Is this a pancake or not? I served this with butter, maple syrup, and bacon!
