Dutch Babies

We sometimes discuss how these should really be called Dutch Bakies,
because they're a kind of eggy baked pancake, but the other name sticks best.
I'm sure you could fill these with something healthy -- sauteed greens maybe which 
I love with a nice scrambled egg and bacon, especially when there's a nutty raisin bread
to soak up the juices -- I can imagine that combination going very nicely with Dutch Babies,
but honestly, we usually just eat them with powdered sugar or jam.  Or au natural
which is also very nice.

¼ cup butter
6 eggs
1½ cups milk
1½ cups flour
½ teaspoon salt

  1. Preheat oven 425°.  Melt butter in pan; remove as soon as butter is melted.
  2. Beat together eggs, milk, flour, and salt.
  3. Pour batter into hot butter. Return to oven and bake until puffy and nicely browned, 20-25 minutes.
