Dutch Babies Recipe {free printable recipe card}

 These delicious, easy to make egg pancakes have a few names: Dutch Babies . . . German Pancakes . . . Hootenannies . . . whatever you call them, they are DELICIOUS! Since I married a Dutchman, I like to call them Dutch babies:) 
My mom and sisters recently took a girls trip out here (still laughing out loud at the crazy fun time we had) and I made these for them. One of my sisters said she has never seen or heard of these. . . WHAT?!? I don't understand how we are sisters and don't know the same food. Anyway, this post and recipe card printable is in honor and of her and anyone else who has gone their whole life without tasting of this goodness.
All it takes is 5 ingredients:
4 tablespoons butter
6 eggs
1 cup milk
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
Heat your oven to 400 degrees, melt the butter in a 9x13 pan by placing it in the oven (unless you like burnt butter, keep your eye on it. It doesn't take long to melt)
Meanwhile, Whip your eggs together: add milk, flour and salt. Blend together and pour over the melted butter.
Increase the oven temperature to 450 and bake for 15-20 minutes, reduce heat to 350 and bake for another 5 minutes.

NOTE: I ran out of flour and had to use half whole wheat flour, so it didn't come out as "yellow" as they normally do. . . and threw my kids for a loop. Good grief. However, after promising over and over again that it tasted the same, they gobbled it up. 
It will REALLY puff up in the oven, don't worry that is normal and will collapse a bit when you take it out of the oven, like the picture below. 
 Sprinkle those babies with powdered sugar and fresh squeezed orange juice and the whole pan will be gone before you know it!
Here is a 4x6 recipe card to add to your breakfast stash! Enjoy!
