Pinterest Fail How To Ruin A Dutch Baby (THE HARD WAY)

What I Did: A Dutch baby is a big, puffy, pillowy pancake thing that blows up like a balloon in the oven before slowly drifting into a bed of butter. Dutch babies were invented in the early 1900s, and they are best known for starring in the Bob’s Burgers episode, “Christmas in the Car.” (Prior to making THIS Dutch Baby, I had never even eaten a Dutch Baby. I’d only seen them on The Food Network. Baking this is the equivalent of seeing a picture of a house and being like, “I guess I can build houses now.”). Check out the full article to watch my mental state become progressively more disheveled as the dutch baby bakes. (Note: external site may contain expletives NSFW.)

    I just started making Dutch Baby and it is a lot of fun. I made a plain one last time and I forgot the sugar. It turns out the baby puffs up a LOT more without sugar! Just used extra syrup, yum yum. Anyways, I like to make the apple in advance. If you don’t, you need to clean the pan before you put it in the oven. Also, you might fail might not just be the lack of butter. You want to put the batter together just before you cook it. I think it keeps the puff better. The reason you want the eggs and milk to be room temp is so the batter can start cooking as soon as it goes in the oven, without taking extra time to warm up. I put the eggs in a glass of hot water for a few minutes, and also briefly microwave my milk to get the chill off.
