Easiest, and our favorite Breakfast recipe. You must try this!
Fruit Dutch Baby

Preheat the oven to 425 - put an oven proof frying pan in to preheat as it warms (6 inch diameter for one serving, 10 inch for two, etc - see the recipe below for proper sizing - we use a non-stick but heavy skillet will work too).

Put 2-3 tbsp butter into the pan to melt and sizzle.

As the oven/pan warm and the butter melts, peel and slice (as for apple pies) 1-2 large apples - put the apple slices into the pan (careful - will be hot!) with the butter and sprinkle liberally (I mean lots!) with cinnamon. Return to the oven until the apples are sizzling away.

As this is happening, in a bowl, whisk together - per person:

1 egg
1/3 cup flour
1/3 cup milk

until smooth (so if you go with the above, this is one serving, and good for a 6 inch pan, using one apple. For two people, 2 eggs, 2/3 cup flour, 2/3 cup milk. Use all purpose unbleached. Skim to whole milk OK).

Once the apples are really sizzling, pour the batter over the apples evenly and return to the 425 deg oven - let it bake for 25-30 minutes. I should puff up rather spectacularly and brown nicely.

Serve with good maple syrup, sprinkle with powdered sugar.

When my wife and I visited Oregon a few years ago, we had variations of the above in nearly every B&B. In the summer time, we use blueberries, blackberries or a mix of the two.

I am sure they can be made savory, adding cheddar and herbs as well.

This takes about 5 minutes to whip up and is much lighter, less filling and more satisfying than pancakes!

2. I do something very similar as a dessert
I heat the oven, heat the pan on top of the stove until screaming hot, pour in the batter and stuff it into the oven. While it's cooking and puffing up, I cook the apples, sugar, butter and cinnamon on top of the stove. When the pancake is done, I take it out, pour the apple filling down the center, fold it over, and plate onto a platter. I dust it with powdered sugar and voila! It's lighter and much nicer than apple pie after a big meal.

To gild the lily, set out vanilla ice cream and a block of white cheddar with a slicer.

3. we always serve dutch babies with lemon and powdered sugar
And the best pan is your cast iron skillet!

A glass pie plate works just fine too.
