My hubby loves bread. I could do without it, but he HAS to have it. Therefore most any quick bread that's fresh and hot is welcomed with cries of delight from the husband. There are some he doesn't care for; anything with a crunchy crust, but this recipe was enjoyed. It makes a great change from johnny cake, or biscuits.

Dutch Babies

¼ cup butter
3 eggs
¾ cup milk
¾ cup flour

Place butter in a large iron skillet. Place skillet inside 425 degree oven until the butter is melted.

In a bowl, blend 3 eggs for 1 minute. Add milk and blend for 30 seconds more. Add flour and blend for 1 minute more. Remove skillet from oven and pour the batter into it with the melted butter. Return skillet to the oven and bake for 20 minutes.

Serve with syrup, honey, or powdered sugar.

This was much better than I’d thought it would be. I thought that since it didn’t have salt in the batter it’d taste kind of flat, but the salt in the butter more than made up for it. It poofed up pretty big in the oven, but after a while of being removed from oven, it flattened out. And by the end of the meal it had turned tough. So eat it warm, straight from the oven. Hubby liked it, so did the child.
