So I made these Dutch Babies this morning following the New York Times recipe and usually they puff up beautifully but today they didn't and were a disaster. What did I do wrong? I'm thinking to much flour perhaps??

    It's going to help us a lot if you give us the recipe and what you may have done differently.

I figured it out after looking at the recipe as I was copying it to my question. I didn't add the milk! 😫

how they normally look

    Did you taste your disaster? Looks quite tasty though they might be chewy. That's not a bad thing.

  • I'm a perfectionist, if it doesn't look like a typical Dutch baby I won't try it lol

    That's okay. I'm always willing to taste my mistakes if they look edible and semi-appealing. At times, I've discovered new ways to cook something or a new recipe. I was telling my son that I wished I had a nice big combination lab-kitchen (science being one of my passions) to work in but would really love to have a lab assistant/flunky to help and then clean up afterward! :D

    I'm intrigued - how is a Dutch baby different from a Yorkshire pudding, which it very much resembles (in appearance at least)? Apr 2 '17 at 3:07

    I'm wondering about the legality of eating 'babies', don't we have laws against that sort of thing? Apr 2 '17 at 5:35
