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?
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
- 2 large eggs
- 6 tablespoons milk
- 6 tablespoons (47 grams) all-purpose flour
- ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
- Handful of strawberries, rinsed and dried
- 1 Meyer lemon, cut into wedges
- Warm maple syrup, for serving
- Powdered sugar, for serving
- Minute 1: Preheat gas oven to 425 degrees F or electric convection oven to 400 degrees F. Prepare ingredients and set out two 6 x 6 round or square baking pans.
- Minute 2: Brush or pour 2 teaspoons melted butter into the bottom of each of the two round or square baking pans, setting the rest of the butter aside. Put pans in oven for three minutes to brown the butter. Meanwhile:
- Minute 4: In a small bowl, very briskly whisk the eggs, flour, and kosher salt 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.
- Minute 6: Pour the batter into the hot baking pans and bake for 12 minutes in a gas oven, or 8 minutes in an electric convection oven. (Note, this is approximately ½ cup batter for each pan.)
- Minute 18: Remove dutch babies from pan once they are golden brown on top. Immediately transfer to warm plates, drizzle with maple syrup, dust with powdered sugar, squeeze a bit of lemon juice, and serve, while the baby is still hot and poofy.
Oops… a little overloaded on the maple syrup.
