This is the most basic recipe for a slightly thick pancake. It's just as easy to make a quick homemade batter as it is to open a box mix, which needs ingredients added to it anyway. And using organic ingredients seems to give the pancakes a cleaner and truer flavor.From the book "Mad Hungry," by Lucinda Scala Quinn (Artisan Books).
Classic Dutch Baby
The next time your crew craves pancakes, serve something new and exciting: a Dutch baby. This baked pancake requires whirring a few basic ingredients in a blender, pouring the batter into a piping-hot skillet, and baking for 20 minutes (no need to flip). After it poofs up into a show-worthy display, serve with fresh fruit, whipped cream, and warm maple syrup.
Dutch Baby with Apples and Honey
Packed with Granny Smith apples, this Dutch baby pancake is a perfect dish for a fall brunch when everyone craves cozy baked apples. It would make a fitting centerpiece at a special Rosh Hashanah brunch as it nods to the traditional dish of sliced apples dipped in honey, a ritual performed to represent the hope for a sweet new year.
