In pursuit of exploring my new-found love for cast iron, we whipped up a colossal Dutch Baby courtesy of a cookbook devoted to just such a mission.
You can make them savory and add in herbs and perhaps some ham or sausage, but we opted for sweet. Dust on powdered sugar and you have a near masterpiece.
It reminded me a of an egg-y beignet. Mmm ... can't go wrong with a little bit of Cafe Du Monde. Pops and I nearly ate our weight in beignets and stupendously copious amount of confectioner's sugar when were there several years ago. Speaking of which, New Orleans is a city to eat your way through! Aside from the baked goods, I also ate 2 pounds of bacon and three servings of bread pudding after a meal one afternoon. You read that right, and no I don't regret it at all. It was a magnificent experience. But I digress.
We sliced our sweet dutch baby into large wedges, added more powdered sugar, and a nice little custard cup of applesauce to complete the breakfast. A lovely little morning meal ... even without any bacon.
