Berry Dutch Baby

My mom and her best friend (my other mom growing up) Kristy came into town this weekend to go to a big jewelry show that we have here several times a year. The jewelry show is like an auto show of jewelry, purses, accessories, perfume, clothes, scarves...just to name a few items. It is always a fun time and I have gone with friends in the past, but I knew it would be something my mom and Kristy would love so I told them to make a weekend out of it and we would go together. Kristy owns a bed and breakfast in the town I grew up in Iowa. She always made really good breakfast food, so I wanted to make a fun breakfast for her when she came.

I decided to make a dutch baby because they are really impressive but super easy at the same time, which is really cool because people think that you went to a lot of work to make it. Dutch babies are also very versatile and easy to switch up to your liking. I have done this berry one several times. I really like it because the fruit is really refreshing and light. You do not feel disgusting after you eat it which is always nice. I have also done an apple one before too which is really good, but the berry is definitely my favorite. One thing that you have to keep in mind when making this is that you have to get it to the table to eat right away when you take it out of the oven because they do deflate quickly and do not look as fancy anymore. So be sure to have your timing down good when making this.
