Breakfast this morning is a recipe from the Taste of Home Cookbook. It's not often I cook other people's recipes, because the more of other people's recipes I cook, the less I can create my own. However, I wanted some inspiration from other people and places this week, so I'm starting with a very tasty breakfast recipe called the Chocolate Chip Dutch Baby.
Chocolate Chip Dutch Baby
from Taste of Home
- 2 large eggs
- 1/2 cup 1/2 & 1/2
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- a dash of cinnamon and nutmeg
- 1/4 cup brown sugar (packed)
- 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
- 3 Tbsp butter
- Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. While it's preheating, stick the butter in a 9" pie plate and leave it to melt in the oven.
- Meanwhile, beat eggs, 1/2 & 1/2, flour, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Set aside.
- In a small bowl, combine sugar and chocolate chips.
- Remove the pie plate from the oven and carefully pour the batter over the hot butter. Sprinkle the chocolate chip mixture over top. Bake for 15 minutes or so, until the edges are puffed up and browned.
- Serve right away, with maple syrup if desired. It's definitely sweet enough without the syrup, though.
Speaking of other people's recipes, here are some that sparked my interest and that I will definitely be making in the future:
