Chocolate Chip Dutch Baby

I love recipes that I can use my caste iron skillet. This Dutch Baby is sweet, easy, light and has a really nice consistency. Its a cinch to make in the morning but you need to prepare ahead of time for preheating the oven and having your skillet heat up in the oven as well. It’s also really impressive if you have guests over. It feeds about four people (depending on how hungry you are!).

Child Friendly Tip: Have your child mix the first five ingredients together. The rest of the recipe requires a grown up since the skillet is really hot. Your little one will be impressed when its all puffed up. Language  concepts that you can work on include sequencing, categorization (e.g. categorize dry ingredients and wet ingredients,  dairy vs grains, etc), actions (e.g. mix, whisk, sprinkle), descriptives (e.g. dry, wet, sweet, hot, cold, etc) and many more!

This is a cooking light recipe if you can believe it! The original recipe is here. Here is how I made it:

[tab title=”Ingredients”]
3/4 cup of 1% milk

1/2 cups all purpose flour

2 tablespoons of sugar

1/4 teaspoon of salt

2 large eggs

1 tablespoon of unsalted butter

2 handfuls of chocolate chips

[tab title=”Preparation”]
1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

2. In a bowl, mix the first five ingredients together with a whisk. Mix until smooth.

3. Once preheated, put your 9 inch caste iron skillet into the oven for fifteen minutes.

4. Add the butter and swoosh around until the pan is coated.

5. Add mixture to pan.

6. Sprinkle chips on top.

7. Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown and puffed.

8. Take out that dutch baby, cut into four slices and enjoy! Yum!
