ANNOUNCING: Change is part of life, and apparently, it's part of blogging, too. As of September 5, 2013, I'm merging The Virtual Goody Plate with Disco Mom Takes on the World and whatever else may henceforth spill from my fingertips (and kitchen), into one great new blog. I hope you'll join me there in exclaiming, "THIS IS AWESOMELAND."

Cocoa Dutch Baby

I've been thinking.  Maybe Pancake Week should go on forever.  And ever and ever.  I know my family wouldn't mind. 

Seriously, this is probably the last one.  We've had a really great week this year.  I made this Cocoa Dutch Baby for my family Valentine's morning, served with strawberries and whipped cream; orange juice, and turkey sausage on the side. 

I prepped the dry ingredients the night before, just to hurry things along in the morning, but it was seriously fast and easy to whip up in the food processor.  Pour it in the pan, pop it in the oven.  The longest part is waiting for the oven to preheat (mine is a slowpoke!)
Rave reviews all around.

Cocoa Dutch Baby (print recipe)
Serves 4 to 6
3/4 cup whole milk
3 large eggs
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted
1/4 tsp coarse salt
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 T unsalted butter
3 T confectioners' sugar, for dusting

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a blender, combine milk, eggs, flour, cocoa powder, salt, vanilla, and granulated sugar. Blend until foamy, 1 minute. In a 10-inch cast-iron skillet*, melt butter over medium. Pour batter into skillet and immediately transfer to oven. Bake until puffed and set, 20 minutes. Dust with confectioners' sugar and serve immediately.

*If you don't have a 10-inch cast iron skillet, you can also use a 9-inch round cake pan.
