These are really easy for kids to make for their moms. I did. And my mom loved them! She said that they were just as good as the resturant ones. And it was so cool how they puffed up like magic. I don't know why that happens, but it's awesome to watch!

I had never tried Dutch babies before, and am not sure if they are supposed to be so eggy, or more of a pancake. I think I will try another recipe that does not call for so much egg.

great recipe, made me think about growing up, I assumed that the egg amount was wrong( some times our chefs hit 9 instead of 3 on the keyboard, ) I added a little nutmeg to mine and some vanilla, cut a little flower and WOW how simple and awesome

These are excellent! My mom serves them with homemade applie pie filling, leftover from Thanksgiving baking. Or use canned pie filling in different flavors. These go great with sausage, and we even eat them for dinner.

I also felt these were a little 'eggy.' I am going to try one with less eggs as well as another rater.

They are suppose to be eggy. Squeeze lemon juice over it along with sprinkled powdered sugar. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

Nice for an easy treat! (not for the calorie conscious!) Kids love them too!

I have never had anything quite like this before, but I liked it and so did my dad, who ate it plain even though I offered him butter, jam, and real maple syrup. I enjoyed mine with a little butter and about a tablespoon of real maple syrup on top; I found it light, fluffy and just sweet enough! I didn't think it was "too eggy" at all. The only thing I might change about this recipe is to add a dash of fresh lemon juice and a teaspoon of vanilla to the batter. One warning: please don't forget to grease your baking dish! Use Pam, olive oil, or even butter - just make sure you grease the bottom and sides! I forgot and my Pyrex baking pan wound up being a mess of browned-on egg that was quite a chore to clean.
