This recipe for a popover-style, "Dutch Baby" pancake caught my eye as I was flipping through the Relish food insert that comes in the newspaper. I made it this morning, and holy mother of Julia Child, it was scrumptious. Also, ridiculously easy to whip up.
I had my slice drizzled with fresh squeezed lemon, as suggested, but for the kids, I used up the last of the buttermilk pancake syrup I'd made last week. It sounds weird, but it makes an amazing, buttery sauce that would be delicious over all kinds of desserts. Or just chugged from a mason jar. Warning: the syrup will taste sour until you add the baking soda at the end. Then magic happens.
It all added up to a hearty, farmgirl breakfast, which I could only justify consuming on a regular basis if I were spending the rest of the morning bench pressing horses, or whatever it is farmgirls do. But for a special treat, you'll do, Dutch Baby, you'll do.
