Dutch Baby

Switch up your typical pancakes and waffles brunch (because does anyone still even eat or have the time for breakfast these days?) with these delightfully fluffy Dutch babies! Similar to popovers and Yorkshire pudding, you can build them up sweet or savory.

What is my favorite way to eat them? With butter! Or if I’m feeling sweet, some powdered sugar and a squeeze of lemon juice.
