"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."

Just right for two people. We liked these babies very much! They were delicious with apples, and I tried them with blueberry compote too, and that was excellent also. I am always on the lookout for something different for breakfast, and this was a great find!

Just a note - for the photo, I used a jar of spiced apples that my daughter canned. So use any fruit you want!
