Fantastic Food Friday: Breakfast

Baby Dutchman

1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup milk
2 eggs
1 tablespoon butter
Lemon juice and powdered sugar for garnish

Preheat oven to 400. In a pie pan, melt butter in preheating oven. Mix flour, milk, and eggs till smooth, careful not to beat. Pour batter into center of butter in pie pan so batter pushes the butter to the edges. Bake 20 minutes. Edges will rise creating a bowl. Sprinkle with lemon juice and powdered sugar.

You can double, triple, etc. and cook in 13x9 pan but you won't get the edges.

This has been a family favorite since my younger sister brought the recipe home from Home Economics -- do they still even have Home Ec? -- during high school.

Baked Oatmeal (Breakfast Cake)

1 cup oil (I substitute 1/2 with applesauce)
2 1/2 cups sugar (with the applesauce, I reduce this to an even 2 cups)
5 eggs, beaten
7 cups quick oatmeal (I use regular old fashioned -- works fine)
1 1/2 tablespoons baking powder
1 tablespoon salt
2 1/2 cups milk

Mix together oil, sugar, and eggs. In a separate bowl, mix oats, baking powder, and salt. Add dry ingredients alternately with milk to egg mixture. Pour into large greased pan (I use the bottom half of my roasting pan 12x20 maybe). Allow to settle 5 to 10 minutes. Bake at 350 for 30 to 45 minutes, until center is set and golden brown. Serve warm.

The applesauce makes this nice and moist. We serve it with chopped fresh apples, raisins, nuts, yogurt, honey, and/or maple syrup. This one has been a family favorite since our family reunion in 2006.
