These special pancakes work even better if you make the batter a day ahead and chill it over night. Just whisk to combine again before cooking.




Cook's Notes

We used an individual crepe pan, but you can make one twelve-inch pancake in a cast-iron skillet and serve it cut into wedges.

    This recipe was great--it was kind of like a popover pancake! I had to cook mine for quite a bit longer (6 mins-ish), but I think that's just due to my rental apartment's oven.

    If you don't have an ovenproof skillet, just use a casserole pan and cook it for 20 minutes. It is wonderful!!

    These are the Famous Dutch Babies--traditionally served with applesauce and powdered sugar. Very dramatic and a Seattle traditon first created by Manca's Restaurant. Zoom up the batter in a blender. We have made them all sizes from crepe pan to Paella pan-also written up in the Seattle Times by Larry Brown with the formula for different sized pans. A terrific presentation item.
