You may have noticed, I’m a bit cast iron skillet baking crazy lately. I’ve developed a serious addition to baking with my antique cast iron skillets. There is something about putting a cast iron skillet on the table with a beautiful, delicious, bubbling baked item in it. It has that “Ah” factor. It makes you feel like you are eating something extra special.
In the past week I have made my Cast Iron Skillet Dutch Baby Pancakes Recipe for my family 3 times. They are DELICIOUS. Buttery, sweet with a hint of tartness, crunchy on the edges and soft and chewy in the center…. seriously SO GOOD! I don’t know if I will ever make regular pancakes again.
I feel like a bad Canadian saying this, but there is no maple syrup in sight when you make Dutch Baby Pancakes. You sprinkle them with lemon juice and confectioners’ sugar and serve. I’ve heard people say that they serve them with marmalade or jam but for my family the confectioners’ sugar and lemon is more than good enough.
