Dutch Baby (Oven Pancake)
This was such a nice change of scenery from the usual pancake breakfast. It had a wonderful dense texture with an exceptional crust, something you can’t get from a regular pancake. Best of all, it was easier to make than regular pancakes since there’s no need to deal with drippy batter and messy cleanups. You can’t beat that!
