I got this recipe from a lady with the screen name Octomom, I think, from the Practical Homeschooling AOL boards. If I remember correctly, she was a homeschooling mom with 8 children. She made life simple for herself by have a menu rotation of breakfast meals that she could put in the oven and bake while she was getting her morning routine done and get her gang fed easily.
This is one of the nine or so recipes she said she rotated through. The recipe she shared was double what I’m sharing here today and baked in a 9×13 casserole dish. While Brian was still at home I fixed it that way but now I fix only half her recipe and bake it in an 8×8 casserole dish.
Put two tablespoons butter in an 8×8 pan in the oven as it preheats to 400º.
In a blender or food processor, put 4 eggs, 1 cup of flour, and 1 cup of milk. Mix. (I usually do this in my vitamix but it needs a piece replaced. Then I started using my food processor, but it slipped a gear or something. I don’t currently have a blender, as my magic bullet died too. So I’m using a mixer here but be sure to mix for a good while, not just until blended, or the end result will be too eggy.)
Keep an eye on that melting but because you don’t want it to burn! Remove it from the oven when melted and pour the batter in the pan.
Place in the oven and bake for 30 minutes or until medium brown or golden brown.
It gets all puffy but deflates quickly as you cut it. I like to add butter to mine, like French toast. Then add the syrup; we use 100% maple syrup.
Then sprinkle on powdered sugar. We use a small strainer and let each person shake it on their slice.
- 2 Tablespoons butter
- 1 cup flour
- 1 cup milk
- 4 eggs
- butter (optional), syrup, and powdered sugar
- Heat oven to 400º.
- Melt butter in an 8x8 pan in oven.
- Mix flour, milk and eggs in blender.
- Pour in pan.
- Bake 30 minutes or until medium (golden) brown.
- Serve with butter (if desired), syrup, and/or powdered sugar.
If you want any of the syrup to stay on top of your dutch boys slice, put it on before the powdered sugar otherwise the powdered sugar seems to repel it.
I hope you enjoy these as much as we have.
Until next time, God bless,
