Want to make something that's not only simple, but utterly delicious for breakfast of brunch this weekend? Look no further than this scrumptious Vanilla Dutch Baby recipe. Just throw the ingredients together in a blender and bake in a preheated skillet. It'll puff up like a pillow and turn golden brown all around the edges, then collapse into a flat crater with a custard-like center that's just perfect for sprinkling with confectioners' sugar and topping with sauteed apples or berries. I promise, you're going to love it.
