The perfect Sunday brunch dish, easy to make, filling and delicious. This is my version of a Dutch Baby.
Sometimes known as a German pancake, a Dutch Baby is simply Yorkshire pudding mix sweetened with sugar and or vanilla. In this version, I've omitted the sugar and just added vanilla essence because of the maple syrup poured over the top.
For 4 people
A mug in which to measure equal quantities of
Eggs - roughly 6
1 teaspoon of Vanilla essence or paste
8 slices of bacon
Maple Syrup to serve
Preheat the oven to gas mark 6
Wipe a frying pan with butter and set to one side, make sure the frying pan can go in the oven
My Yorkshire pudding mix is equal quantities of milk, egg and flour.
Blend the eggs and milk together separately till smooth
Make a well in the flour and add 25% of the liquid, beat till smooth
Add another 25% of the liquid and slowly at first, beat till smooth
Add the rest of the liquid and mix till combined.
Add a teaspoon of vanilla paste or two teaspoon of vanilla essence.
Heat the frying pan till the butter is sizzling and add the Yorkshire pudding and put in the oven till done, about 20 - 25 minutes.
Whilst the Dutch Baby is in the oven (sorry!) cook the bacon and keep warm.
To serve, quickly cut in to 4, add the bacon and drizzle with maple syrup.
