Dutch Babies

For Christmas this last year my mom (or Santa?) gave me a set of red ramekins. I have a thing for red kitchen items, so this was the perfect present. However, 5 months have passed and my cute red ramekins were still sitting in their packaging untouched.  I decided this morning was the morning to put these guys to work.

I found this recipe for Dutch Babies and decided it would make the perfect breakfast this morning. I was no misled in the slightest. I literally burst out giggling when I pulled them out of the oven because they looked so comical, puffed up so high.

Dutch Babies

1 cup flour
1 cup milk
4 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt
4 tsp vegetable oil


1. Preheat your oven to 475.

2. To make the batter, in a food processor combine the flour, milk, eggs, vanilla, sugar, and salt. Pulse until well combined.

3. In each ramekin spread 1 tsp of the vegetable oil with a pastry brush.

4. Divide the batter before the 4 ramekins. Place on a baking sheet.

5. Bake the dutch babies for about 15 minutes, or until they are golden brown and puff up.

6. You can top with lemon juice and powdered sugar.

  1. Thank you for linking up this week. I smiled at the image of you laughing after pulling these from the oven. I can see how they would produce a laugh. Fun food!
