Dutch Babies with Ham, Dutch Babies in a Muffin Tin and Plain Dutch Babies in a Cast Iron Skillet

I received a recipe from my nephew for Miniature Dutch Babies made in a Muffin Tin.
The name was different and I did some research and found that it's a very common recipe. I'm not sure it's possible to locate the original creator of the recipe.
Before I post the recipe for the Muffin Tin Dutch Babies, I wanted to share a recipe that I've had in my collection of my Best of the Best recipes for Dutch Babies with Ham from 1979.
As a vegetarian, I now embrace the Miniature ones that are baked in a Muffin Tin and topped with any flavor of Jam, or simply serve the large ones with fruit or custard, or..... your favorite filling. I think that scrambled eggs and crumbled sausage would be good too.

Dutch Babies with Ham:

4 - 8" Pie Tins or foil cake pans ( serves 4 )
1 C Heavy Cream
1/2 tsp Salt
Powdered Sugar for Dusting
1 C cooked diced ham
Buttered Apples
8 tsp Flour
8 eggs
Butter and Flour
Lemon Wedges

In a bowl, combine:
Heavy Cream
Mix well
With a fork, blend in the eggs until all ingredients are well blended
(Based on the recipe following, you could mix the cream, flour, salt and eggs in a blender).

Butter and Flour the 4 Pie Tins

Arrange 1/4 C Ham in the bottom of each pan
Divide the batter evenly among the pans

Bake in a 450 degree pre heated oven for 15 - 20 minutes

Serve one to each person with Buttered Apples, Powdered Sugar and a Lemon Wedge

4 large apples, peeled, cored and sliced thin
Melt 4 TBS of Butter, add apples and cook until tender.
Sprinkle with 1/4 C sugar mixed with 1 tsp cinnamon.

 Dutch Babies in a Muffin Tin:

Here's what you'll need:
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
1 - 12 C Muffin Tin sprayed with a Vegetable Cooking Spray or brushed generously with Melted Butter.

1 C milk
6 eggs
1 C flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 C butter, melted

Blend the first five ingredients together in a blender.
Slowly drizzle in the butter, continuing to blend until very smooth.

Fill the cups slightly less than half full.

Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes or until the tops are golden brown.
A crater will naturally form in the center.

To serve, fill the center with your favorite jam and dust with powdered sugar or as above, fill the center with some diced ham and buttered apples.

Peace in the Kitchen!

Plain Dutch Babies with Lemon and Confectioner's Sugar in a Cast Iron Skillet

Here's what you'll need:
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
1 - 10" Cast Iron Skillet preheated in the oven.
You'll need additional Melted Butter,  Confectioner's Sugar and the Juice of 1 Lemon for Garnish.

In a Blender:
3 Eggs, room temperature
2/3 C Whole Milk, room temperature
1/2 C Flour
1/4 tsp Vanilla
1/4 tsp Salt
Blend until very smooth. Scrape sides as needed.
Pour into the preheated skillet.
Bake for 20 - 25 minutes.
Remove from the oven to a rack.

Brush well with additional melted butter.
Drizzle with Melted Butter.
Dust heavily with Confectioner's Sugar.

Peace in the Kitchen!
