German Pancakes (Dutch Babies)


German Pancakes (Dutch Babies)
*******
Call the family to the kitchen just before removing it from the oven so they can “ooh and ahh” before it deflates.  Seriously.




8 eggs
2 C flour, stirred and measured
2 C rich milk, or rice milk
3/4 tsp salt
6 TBL butter or margarine
***
Fresh squeezed lemon or orange juice with powdered sugar
Jam
Maple syrup
Applesauce


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.  You will be setting baking dish on lowest rack, so raise the middle rack to make room.  Set 9 x 13 clear glass dish into hot oven on lowest oven shelf until very hot.  Meanwhile, mix eggs, flour, milk and salt in small mixer bowl or blender.  Beat until silky-smooth, about 3 minutes.
  2. Remove dish from oven; add butter and rotate dish until butter is melted (you may melt butter in dish in hot oven if you want browned butter—watch closely).  Pull out oven rack.  Set dish back on oven rack and add batter immediately. Pour it in a back and forth motion so the butter doesn't all get pushed to the sides--you want a lot of it to get trapped in the middle of the batter.  Gently slide rack back in to avoid batter sloshing out.
  3. Bake on lowest rack for 20 minutes or until golden. 
  4. Serve with hot syrup, applesauce, jam or powdered sugar & fresh squeezed lemon or orange juice drizzled on top.


NOTE:  For serving a small group, use 3 eggs/ ½ C flour/ ½ C milk/ ¼ tsp salt/ 2 TBL butter and bake in round pie baking dish. 
A different recipe called for 9 eggs, 1½ C flour, 1½ C milk, so it's a lot more dense if that's what you like.

Easter Babies (Croatian Easter Bread Dolls)

  Easter Babies                                                     ******* Makes 12 Easter Babies These Easter Babies (Croatian Easter bread dolls a.k.a.   primorski uskrsne bebe )  are a new tradition in our family. The egg dying, dough mixing and braiding is so fun for children and grownups—it’s contagious. Traditionally, they are made with red-dyed eggs, but we use the colors we already have dyed. They make sweet gifts and they also look charming laying next to each Easter dinner plate.  This lady  uses naturally dyed eggs for her Easter babies. If you're already making  challa bread , use extra challa dough for these babies (simply make enough dough for 2 loaves, only bake one challa, and use the remaining dough for the Easter Babies).

Sprouts Foo Young

Sprouts Foo Young ******* For each pancake:   2 eggs Grapeseed oil or ghee 1 C sprouts (alfalfa, sunflower, mung bean) 1 small clove garlic, minced ¼ C chopped green onion tops 1 tsp freshly grated ginger (or pinch of ground ginger) ½ to 1 tsp Braggs amino sauce (like soy sauce) Optional:  add shrimp or fresh crab meat to step #1 Add a bit of oil in a small skillet.  Over medium heat sautee garlic, ginger and green onion tops.  Do not brown the garlic—that will make it bitter. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk eggs until light and fluffy.  Whisk in Braggs. When garlic is fragrant, add a bit more oil, then add sprouts, give them a stir or two (to mix with garlic, etc.), and pour egg over all.  Cook like an omelette, or flip like a pancake to brown on both sides.  

Pumpkin Pie-Coconut Cream Ice Cream

Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream Makes 1 quart I spy some dietary restrictions in my future. The doctor’s verdict will be in within a month, so I was hoping that some of the few remaining approved edibles (including coconut) could turn out something muy bueno. They did. This ice cream is excelente. The gingersnap cookies won’t be an option for the Paleo eater at the table, but everyone else will love them.  Modified from the nourishing gourmet
