Well, we got a “little” snow here just outside of Washington DC this weekend! I am sore all over from all of the shoveling but that hard work deserved a yummy breakfast treat!
I love making this Dutch Baby Pancake recipe from Martha Stewart…it reminds me of my youth and going out for breakfast, after church, with my family. I had no idea (and I don’t think my mom did either!) how easy this was to make. I urge you to give it a try and definitely do NOT leave out the cardamon spice…it’s yummy!
Dutch Baby Pancake
recipe from Martha Stewart’s Favorite Comfort Food cookbook
1 1/2 Tbl unsalted butter
1 Granny Smith apple, peeled and sliced into 1/4-1/2 in slices
1/3 cup honey
1/4 teas ground cardamom
3 large eggs
3/4 cup milk
3/4 cup flour
1/4 teas salt
1 Tbl confectioners’ sugar
- Heat oven to 400 degrees. Heat a well-seasoned 10 in cast-iron skillet over high heat. Add butter. When melted, add apple wedges. Cook until softened and lightly golden, about 2 min. Stir in honey and cardamom, and remove skillet from heat.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together remaining ingredients, except for powder sugar, until smooth. Pour over apple mixture. Bake until puffed and brown, about 20 min. Sift confectioners’ sugar on top and serve immediately (with maple syrup!)

I’m finishing up my cards for this week’s Valentine Workshop at my home and then I’m off to visit and comment on all the entries! So often I just have time enough to pop in and see your creations up close, but with a snow day and no school today – yahoo – I have time to play!
For last week’s ribbon/twine Amusing Challenge here are the Top 3. I’ve included the links to the winners’ blogs. It got me to thinking – I’d love to have you link to my blog as well…it helps keep the “love” flowing!
I hope you will grab your blog badges, winners, and congratulations! Remember, everyone is eligible for the prize drawing at the end of the month. I hope you will join us in this week’s Amusing Challenge called Shades of Blue. I think you will be blown away by some of the design teams’ work!
