Sombrero with a side of Pears, please!

Dutch Babies for Breakfast:

Preheat oven to 400.
Put 2 TBS butter into a cast iron skillet, or other oven going pan (OGP). Put the pan in the oven. While the butter is melting (3-5 minutes) whisk together 3 eggs. Add 1/2 c. milk, 1/2 cup flour and some salt. Beat together. Immediately pour into OGP, and stick back in the oven for 20-25 minutes until well done.

While the Dutch baby is cooking, prepare some sort of fruit. I had a bunch of pears, so I sliced those up, drizzled a little honey on them and mixed them with a little bit of raspberry preserves. I heated the whole thing up in a skillet, and just as the dutch baby came out of the oven, I dumped the fruit on top. Serve with something cold and white. The recipe recommends whipped cream, all I had was vanilla yogurt.

Well, it doesn't look like the picture...but my dutch baby was delicious. My entire kitchen slopes, so the distribution of batter in my pan was, shall we say, uneven. Next time I will remember to rotate it sooner. And I think some experimentation with the batter (like cinammon, which I threw on the apples and pears this time) is in order. And I'm using whole wheat flour because it's all I have...not sure how much of a change in chemstry that's causing. Great recipe!

LOL...I used whole wheat flour also...I'm not really sure what caused the sombrero effect on mine.
