If you've never had a Dutch Baby before it's a cross between a pancake and popover.  It's not actually Dutch, it originated in the US at a Seattle restaurant. Although this elegant dish may look difficult, it's incredibly easy and makes a great vessel for any of your favorite pairings.

"My family loves pancakes and popovers and this recipe makes everyone happy!  I've served these for breakfast, lunch (ham and gruyere) or with a beef roast for dinner...and even for dessert with fresh fruit and whipped cream.  When they puff up and rise beyond the edges of the pan they are quite impressive when you pull them out of the oven." - F&F Member
