DIRECTIONS TOO SCANTY FOR A BEGINNING COOK. I love Dutch Babies and they are so easy to make. However, I am usually at a loss as to what to fill them with. This recipe is the perfect solution. ...

Did not have whole milk but substituted cream. Turned out very good.

I made this because the other reviewer couldn't understand the recipe and it looked good. I had no problem with it and it was delicious!

Worked great , just follow the directions! We added some sauteed mushrooms and onions to ours. Very good!

This has some of the most confusing directions I have ever seen. I’m not sure we’re to start or even if I want to!!
