Our Christmas Morning Tradition – Dutch Babies
I love all of our family traditions.
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
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
I’ve partnered with Just Ask to honor these special family times — like eating your weight in breakfast together (LOL) — and also to remind you to
just ask about your family’s genetic history.
What better gift to win just in time for holiday cooking?
(yes, this is a 5QT Artisan Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer, estimated value $349)
Why ask about your family’s genetic history? When you know if your family has a history of breast cancer or ovarian cancer, you can better manage your future and your health — and help ensure you stay around for many more holidays!
