Baby Dutch Baby With Apples
November 16, 2020
"I love Dutch Babies - known in my family as German Pancakes - but most recipes are for 4 servings. Delicious as they are, I really don't want leftovers for the two of us, neither do I want to eat a double portion. This is a pared down version using a small 6 1/2 inch cast iron skillet. Use the apple topping, a different fruit or just dust with powdered sugar."
