lilac pancakes

This has to be one of the easiest breakfast dishes to make. You simply place all of the ingredients in the blender, pour into mini cast iron skillets and bake. The result is so delicious! Dutch baby pancakes have a custard-like texture with crispy edges. They puff up all nice and pretty and look so fancy!

Blackberry Lilac Dutch Baby Pancakes

Serves 2 (easily double the recipe to serve 4)

1/2 cup organic whole milk
2 large organic eggs
2 tablespoons lilac sugar (recipe below)
1/2 cup organic all-purpose flour
Pinch of pink salt
1 tablespoon of organic unsalted butter
2/3 cup organic blackberries
Powdered sugar for sprinkling

Place milk, eggs, lilac sugar, flour and salt in a blender. Blend. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Melt 1/2 tablespoon of butter in two separate 6 1/2 inch cast iron skillets. Once melted, divide batter between the two skillets. Add a handful of blackberries to each. Place in the oven and bake for about 18-20 minutes or until the center is set and the edges are golden brown. Serve immediately.

Garnish with fresh blackberries and sprinkle with powdered sugar. I also tossed a few berries in some homemade jam, added a splash of water and placed in a small skillet over medium heat for about 5 minutes to make a lovely berry sauce to drizzle on top! Super yummy!
