also, this was breakfast. dutch courage should and usually is followed up the next morning with a delicious item called a dutch baby… and a strong cup of coffee. pancake-ish, but you get a custardy centre and crisp light edges. topped with blackberries. so basically, better than a pancake in every way!
i think i’m getting the itch.
this one required a recipe, borrowed from here (although next time i might add sugar and lemon zest into the batter):
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup bread flour or all-purpose flour, sifted
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
6 tablespoons butter
Lemon juice and powdered sugar to taste
Preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit, and place the rack in the middle. Put a 10″ cast iron skillet or other heavy ovenproof pan in the oven to get hot and sizzling. Beat eggs in a large bowl until frothy. Add milk, flour, vanilla and cinnamon. Beat a few minutes until the batter is creamy (it’s okay if there are a few lumps). Working quickly, remove the skillet from the oven and add butter, tilting to melt and coat pan. Pour batter into skillet all at once and return immediately to oven. Bake about 20-25 minutes until puffed and golden brown around the edges. Remove from oven and serve immediately. Slice into wedges and top with lemon juice and powdered sugar.
