Savory Dutch Baby Pancake
I'm often torn between having something sweet or savory for breakfast. The simple solution to that, of course, is to have both! This morning I made a double batch of dutch baby pancakes. I split the batter in half and added 1/2 cup of grated cheddar cheese to one half. What resulted was a slightly cheesy flavor infused with the usual sweet pancake batter. I like the browned cheesy bits on the surface of the pancake, but the batter base was sweeter than I would have preferred. If I do a double batch of sweet and savory pancakes again, I'd add the sugar to the sweet pancake after splitting the batter in half. Or another solution would be to make the cheesy batter on its own, decreasing the sugar and adding a bit more salt or other savory herbs. All in all, still tasty and I'll let you know how it goes with a few modifications next time.
