orange and cinnamon dutch baby recipe with honey and Countreau syrup


orange and cinnamon dutch baby recipe with honey and Countreau syrup


I had never tried dutch babies before, but it was about time. Now that I have, I came up with my own gourmet version: a honey, cinnamon & countreau dutch baby recipe.

I love the way I linked flavors between the batter and the sauce… It is a dutch baby recipe perfect for brunch days or lazy stay-at-home adult Sundays.
