Tasty Tuesday--Dutch Baby

I can't find the Rum Cake recipe, so here is the dutch baby that is the best, most impressive, so easy it should be illegal thing to serve when you have company for breakfast. Forget standing over a griddle, missing out on all the conversation!

This is from an Old Sunset Magazine cookbook--Favorite Recipes II. The important thing is to use a shallow container (no more than 3 inches tall) to get yummy crispiness all around...

For 2-3 qt pan:
1/4 C butter
3 eggs
3/4 C Each milk and flour

Place butter in pan and set pan in a 425 oven until butter is melted and foamy. Meanwhile, Throw it all in the blender! Eggs first, once blended add milk with motor running, then slowly add flour. Keep the blender going for at least 30 seconds after the last of the flour.
Remove pan from oven (butter should be foamy).
Pour batter in pan and return to oven, bake for 20-25 minutes or until puffy and well browned.

Two favorite ways to eat this?
1. powdered sugar and squeeze lemons on it...

2. I just throw frozen peaches into the blender with a little sugar and cinnamon and pour it over...YUM!

Because I love that they list proportions for other sized pans in this cookbook--I NEVER have the pan that they call for...It says don't use glass, but I've done it, it's still tasty!

3-4 qt pan?
1/3 C Butter
4 Eggs
1 C each flour/milk

4-4 1/2 qt pan
1/2 C
5 eggs
1 1/4 C each

4 1/2-5 qt
1/2 C
6 eggs
1 1/2 C each

Seriously--so easy.
