Caramelized Banana Dutch Babies
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 cup of flour
  • 4 tablespoons of butter
  • ½ cup of brown sugar
  • 2 bananas
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla paste
  • 6 tablespoons of sugar
  1. This recipe makes two pans of Dutch Babies that will easily serve a hungry family of 6. The instructions are to make one plain Dutch Baby and one banana one.
  2. Preheat oven to 450 degrees fahrenheit. If your oven is slow like mine, do this first! No one likes to wait for breakfast too long.
  3. Get two overproof skillets out. I have a cast iron skillet on my list for mother's day, but for now, I use two all-clad stainless steel pans that are safe at high temperatures.
  4. Combine the vanilla paste, eggs, milk, granulated sugar, salt and flour in the blender. Pulse until mixed.
  5. Heat both pans on medium high heat. First, prepare your bananas. Add 3 tablespoons of butter to the pan along with the brown sugar. As soon as it is melted, add the bananas and turn a few times to coat well on both sides. Pour in half the batter and turn off the heat.
  6. Add one tablespoon of butter to the second pan. As soon as the butter is melted, add the remaining batter to that pan. Put both pans in the oven immediately.
  7. Cook for 15 minutes, until the Dutch Babies are golden and puffed up. Douse with a big cloud of powdered sugar and serve immediately (taking great care to not get burned on the hot pan or handles). Some of my kids also like jam on top of the sugar.
