Top 10 Things I love Most about you!
1. You have a heart for God. I love when you pray at night, this insight you show in faith is remarkable. I will have a small hand at raising you to make a difference in this hurting world and that gives me hope and faith that you will do great incredible things!
You have a heart for others, that is truly unmatched at your age.
2. You are so funny! Your sense of humor is eons above your age,
you get things with a look or a tone and we just know what each other is thinking all the time.
8. You're so cool and you don't even try!

I promised to share this recipe yesterday. Let me warn you it's not my most successful recipe, but it is a very good one and of course i learned some things. i have some tips on how to make a peach cake and how not to make a peach cake. You wont see this on any Pinterest Fail posts but if you've never been to that site definitely check it out, it makes my attempt a total win in my book! Don't be discouraged, it isn't a 100% fail and in my experience not many blog posts share where their recipes went wrong or how many times they made said recipe until they perfected it. However you will save some time and effort when you execute this at home. It's also the best excuse to use those fresh peaches before they go out of season.
The original recipe i followed used 4 fresh peaches, i only needed 3 to fill my pan.
Start your caramel sauce on the stove for this you need 3 tablespoons of butter & 3/4 c brown sugar to the pan and let melt. Let the brown sugar to get all bubbly caramel goodness in a 9 inch cast iron pan.
DO NOT STIR the goodness!
meanwhile you can peel the peaches with a vegetable peeler.

I love breakfast foods, anything carb related really I don't discriminate from any pastry, donuts, cinnamon rolls, croissant, bagel, danish you name it i love it! I even scoured the internet for the most perfect pancake recipe and I've never looked at another recipe since. So it's logical that I would attempt at making a Dutch Pancake. The minute I heard it of course I looked it up on Pinterest. Why on earth am I just hearing about this now i thought... so that was my weekend challenge. My only complaint from working an early shift is not having enough time to cook a decent breakfast. Luckily for Jayla I've mastered the morning routine to leave this in the oven for her in the mornings. This makes an easy morning for my mom who usually has a brood of kids in the morning and I feel better about dashing off to the office. Now it's super easy to make... but it takes 25 mins to bake. But trust me it's worth it!
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
3 eggs at room temperature
3/4 c. milk at room temperature
3/4 c all purpose flour
2 tsp. sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
a pinch of salt
Place the butter in a 12" oven-proof, non-stick skillet.
place the skillet into the oven while it heats to 350 degrees.
Combine the eggs, milk, flour, sugar, vanilla and salt in a blender and blend until smooth.
|you can top this with anything really, but i choose blueberries or you can used mixed berries, |
maple syrup, powder sugar, fresh peaches & whipped cream the sky is the limit!
Remove the skillet from the oven and swirl the melted butter around so it evenly coats the pan. Pour the egg mixture into the skillet and return the skillet to the oven
be patient for 25 minutes, or until the Dutch Baby is puffed and golden brown.
Garnish with a dusting of powdered sugar or maple syrup and top with fresh berries, if desired. Now I'd be lying if I really considered this a healthy breakfast food, but my argument is... it only has 2tsp of sugar plus the fresh fruit makes it a good option to consider add some yogurt and you have a nice breakfast. It's prefect for a light morning with a cup of coffee or even a perfect ending to a big meal as a dessert option. Maybe someone can try making it healthier by using wheat flour ... but why?
Some foods should just be called dessert and i wouldn't necessarily put this exact recipe on that list, but this was a funny read about how all those carbs i mentioned earlier are just that.
