Where Would You Love to Cook Today?

Is you kitchen ready for Christmas?
Doesn't this one look pretty?
I love the wreath over the sink.
I found this over at:
So many christmas recipes to choose....
I think we will make Dutch Babies from:
And they are doing and amazing giveaway so make sure you stop by.
One of my favorite traditions is our Christmas morning breakfast. We make Finnan Haddie from my Danish ancestors and we also make Dutch Babies from my husband’s side of the family. If you aren’t familiar with Dutch Babies, they are also called German Pancakes and are a mix between crepes and pancakes — light and fluffy and delicious.
We love to serve them with wedges of lemon, fresh berries, warm syrup and powdered sugar.  (My mom gave me a handmade recipe book with all of our family recipes when I was first married and it’s where all of my family recipes are kept. It’s still one of my most treasured possessions.)
They are Heavenly!!
Of course we make them at other times of the year too, but they really remind me of Christmas morning.
Here’s the simple recipe:
1 1/4 cup milk
1 1/4 cup flour
5 eggs
pinch of salt (optional)
pinch of cinnamon (optional)
3 Tablespoons of butter
  • Mix all ingredients in a blender
  • Put butter in 2 9×12 oven-proof pans or skillets, put in oven and heat to 375 degrees
  • When butter is melted, take the pans out and tilt them so butter covers the entire bottom
  • Pour batter evenly onto the pans
  • Bake in 375-degree oven for 15-20 minutes, until edges are puffed and browned
  • Cut into serving-sized pieces and serve hot with powdered sugar, syrup, lemon wedges, preserves or anything else desired
