based on my current breakfast obsession—Dutch Baby Pancakes—summer style.
If you've seen signs at your grocery store or market encouraging you to grab the peaches and nectarines now, because the season is short—listen to them! They're not lying to you. It's super short.

For about 3 weeks this last month, Trader Joe's had pre-packed crates of 16 of the juiciest, most flavorful nectarines, and I was in heaven. (Normally I avoid most pre-packed fruit there, because they're almost always rock hard. Sorry, Señor José, but when you package your fruit as tightly as a pack of batteries, I see what you're doing there.)

But these nectarines were incredible! There are still some fresh ones to be found, though, so pick some up!
Dutch baby pancakes have been an obsession of mine for a special weekend breakfast for a while. They're SO easy--you can even make the batter overnight—and take no time at all for a special weekend breakfast. Just melt butter in a cast iron pan, pour in the batter and any additions, and let it bake.

And the way the pancake will rise far above the pan while baking is pretty entertaining, I must admit. Sometimes I like to pretend that I actually don't have a ton to do on Saturdays, and I'll grab my coffee, turn the oven light on, sit on the floor, and watch it rise.

An apple-cinnamon dutch baby—a classic that I'll share soon too!
My sister-in-law and I have been sharing creative new toppings we've tried with the base recipe, and this might be my favorite so far--nectarines, walnuts, and toasty coconut!
Ingredients

3/4c. flour (I use Bob's Red Mill Whole Wheat Pastry Flour)
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 Tbsp. raw sugar
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
3 Tbsp. butter
3/4c. skim milk
4 large eggs
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 nectarines, rinsed and sliced
1/4c. shredded unsweetened coconut
1/3c. walnuts, chopped
optional: sprinkled powdered sugar, lemon slices, maple syrup

First, move oven rack to bottom level (or just make sure the racks are not too close to each other, as the batter may rise over the pan) and heat to 400ºF.

Combine flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, and cinnamon in a large bowl.

Whisk together eggs, milk, and vanilla. Add to dry ingredients and mix well.
Let the batter set for 5 minutes. Some chefs recommend making this batter overnight, specifically so the batter can set. I'm not sure I can tell the difference, but I do let it set for a while so bubbles form.

Place butter in a medium cast iron pan and let it melt in the oven. (Note: also works in a square glass baking pan if you don't have a cast iron.) Remove it as soon as it melts so the butter doesn't brown!

Pour batter over butter and add nectarines and walnuts evenly throughout the pan. Sprinkle coconut on top.
Bake for 25-30 minutes. It will sink a tad once it's removed from the oven.

I like to bring the pan to the table and serve directly from it. Powdered sugar sprinkled on top is popular with Dutch babies, but with this one I don't think it's necessary. Serve with maple syrup and lemon slices to squeeze! Serves 2-4.

Enjoy!

That is a pancake? Really? At first, I really did think that it was a pizza of some kind because of the toppings that are placed on top of it. This recipe is great! I really didn't think that pancakes could be made this way or be cooked this way. From here on out I really am going to be joining you in experimenting and in trying out other kinds of possible recipes, and if I'll be able to come up with something delicious, then maybe I'll give you a recipe of it too. That recipe of yours really is amazing and appetizing, it really does looks very delicious that it really is getting my stomach wanting for some. I would really want to try this one out, it really is something I wouldn't want to miss out.

To be honest having a baby is a little like planning your own wedding in some ways- you go online, read countless magazines, and then you become convinced that you absolutely need an item in your wedding to make it that extra bit special.

Slice nectarines and distribute equally in pastry-lined pan. Spread nutmeg and glucose over chopped nectarines. Press the fresh fruit juice from the orange over the fresh fruit stuffing. Dot with butter.
