Baby Dutch Babies

(6 servings)

  • 2 Tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup milk (2% or whole)
  • 1 4-oz package cream cheese
  • about 1/4 cup jam - whatever flavor you prefer
  • optional: Powdered sugar; Maple Syrup
Get out a muffin tin with 12 large muffin cups (2 1/2 inch diameter cups)... or use 2 muffin pans with 6 cups each. Divide butter equally among the cups of the pan(s). Set pan in 425 degree F. oven to melt the butter, roughly 2 minutes.

As butter melts in the cups, combine in a food processor or blender: eggs, flour, and milk; Whirl until blended.

Cut cream cheese into cubes the size of a scant teaspoon.

Remove pan(s) from oven. Spoon about 2 Tablespoons Batter into each cup. Use all the batter. Bake 5 minutes to firm the bottoms. Remove from oven and quickly add to each muffin cup: 1 scant teaspoon cream cheese and 1 scant teaspoon jam. Put back in oven and bake until puffed and browned on edges, 10 minutes longer.

Remove and enjoy hot from the oven!

These are like the big German Pancakes that many people make, but in individual form. Great for a brunch. Enjoy!

Mr Breakfast would like to thank Sherbg for this recipe.
