What cereal was introduced in 1963? (Answer below in Mr. RGBistro’s crossword puzzle.)
I really hope your Saturday morning routine is a little like ours; sleeping in, snuggling with the dog and steaming lattes…
Breakfast also comes with a garden view, a crossword puzzle and morning fetch with Britta the weimaraner.
Our garden strawberries seem to be at the peak of their season right now, so we try to eat them unadulterated. What better than serving them with a Dutch baby, syrup, butter and Meyer lemon juice?
Do you have a Saturday morning routine?
Dutch babies are quite simple to make. One egg per person, and equal parts flour and milk. They look like clouds coming out of the oven, but deflate nicely on the plate. Finish with a squeeze of Meyer lemon, a dusting of powdered sugar and a drizzle of maple syrup.
~ Makes ~
~ Ingredients ~
- 1 Meyer lemon
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 2 large eggs
- 6 tablespoons milk
- 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- Pinch kosher salt
- Handful of strawberries
- 4 tablespoons maple syrup
- Powdered sugar
~ Preparation ~
Preparation Time: 30 minutes
- Preheat gas oven to 425˚ F or electric convection oven to 400˚ F.
- Melt unsalted butter in a microwave for about 30 seconds. Pour 2 teaspoons into the bottom of each of the two 6 x 6 round or square casserole dishes. Put dishes in oven for three minutes to brown the butter. Meanwhile:
- In a small bowl, very briskly whisk the eggs and flour together. Pretend you’re very angry at the bowl; twenty seconds of whisking as hard and fast as you can should do the trick.Then whisk in the milk, the rest of the butter and kosher salt.
- Pour the batter into the hot casserole dishes and bake for 12 minutes in a gas oven, or 8 minutes in an electric convection oven.
- While Dutch babies are baking, wash strawberries. Stem them if you want. If they’re in season, you won’t need to add sugar to them. Slice a couple of wedges of Meyer lemon, heat up some maple syrup and plate your dish while waiting for the Dutch baby to come out.
- Dust with powdered sugar and serve immediately, while the baby is still hot and poofy.
