Dutch Baby

You can use whole or lowfat milk instead of skim, but the Dutch Baby won’t be as crisp. For a treat, serve with an assortment of berries and lightly sweetened whipped cream. Baby Steps Look, Ma, no leavener! From liquid batter to puffy popover, here's how you make a Dutch Baby. 1. The entire interior surface of the pan—including the sides—is brushed with vegetable oil. 2. To initiate the big rise, the greased pan is heated before the batter is poured in. 3. Like magic (or like a giant popover, which it resembles), the Dutch Baby balloons in the oven. 4. The Dutch Baby will deflate after it sits a few minutes. Don't worry—it's supposed to. Dust it with confectioners' sugar and enjoy.
