Dutch Baby Bites

I posted a Dutch Baby recipe awhile back. Because it’s one of our favorite breakfast I decided I needed to try it in the mini muffin pan.

I don’t know what it is but bite size food is kinda fun.

This is one of the easiest recipes you can find. It’s just eggs, flour and milk at a ratio of 4:1:1 – 4 eggs, 1 cup of flour, 1 cup of milk.

Bake at 400° about 10 minutes for the minis.

If you’re using a non-stick you don’t need to butter the pan. I haven’t buttered this pan once. It’s great.

Tradition says the best way to eat Dutch baby is with a little powederd sugar, splash of lemon juice and a little syrup.

48 bites called for a double batch; 8 eggs, 2 cups of flour and 2 cups of milk.

At 36 calories a bite and almost 2g of protein each. I think these qualify as healthy food. I had 8 for breakfast. 🙂

7:30am I better get back to it.

Enjoy your breakfast and your day!

More Mini Muffin Mayhem!

Last night I came up with a brilliant plan for breakfast muffins this morning. I concocted the plan in my mind and this morning after farm chores I rushed in to execute it.

PB&J Mini Muffins!

I was going to make some cashew butter with my juicer (yes my juicer makes nut butters and pasta too) but decided to cheat just a little because time was getting on and I didn’t have a good oil for the nut butter. Vegetable oil just isn’t suitable for nut butters, you really should use a coconut or peanut oil. Grape seed oil is good too.

I cheated on the Jelly too. However this isn’t so bad, only 10g of sugar per 1/3 cup. It took about 2/3 of the can to stuff 36 mini muffins.

Since the muffins are tiny I only used a dab of peanut butter, less than a tsp each. The strawberries had partial chunks so I dab one in each muffin.

Overall I think I used about 1/4-1/3 cup of peanut butter.

After making extra crispy muffins yesterday I watched these like a hawk. The mini muffins were done perfectly in 15 minutes in a 350° oven.

The muffin base is a basic yellow cake but because some of my farm eggs are from pullets (a young hen whose just started laying eggs will lay smaller eggs) and I have mass amounts of eggs coming in every day I put 5 eggs in the batter instead of the 2 it calls for. The 5 eggs probably were the equivalent of 3 1/2 large store bought eggs.

The below nutrition label is an approx of the muffins with peanut butter and strawberry filling. One batch of the yellow cake filled 36 muffins.

Got eggs?!

We do! Out of 13 hens we average a dozen eggs a day. Egg dishes are an easy, cheap and delicious way to go when eggs are showing up in abundance.

One of our favorite breakfasts is a Dutch baby.

Ingredients:

2 eggs

1/2 cup flour

1/2 cup milk

1tbsp butter

Oven 400°

Prep 5 minutes

Bake 30 minutes

Devour ???

My favorite method is to use a cast iron pan but I’ve made this dish in a square glass baking pan as well as put it in a muffin tin.

Preheat the oven to 400° with the pan and butter.

When the butter is melted pour in the batter and set the timer for 30 minutes.
