Originally made by the German community in America, where Dutch is actually a corruption of the word Deutsche, the Dutch puff (or Dutch baby) found new life as a diner classic in 1940s Seattle. However, if you, like me, grew up with Yorkshire puddings and roast beef most Sundays, then it can seem a bit odd to have these sweet and for breakfast, but, believe me, it’s as versatile as any other pancake. Chuck those traditions out of the window! I use beef dripping as my fat of choice here too. It will make your babies über–puffy and the smoky meatiness is a great background to all the sugar you are about to consume, but any favorless oil is a fine substitute. Serve with your favorite coffee.
