The other evening, I was perusing her site and found this interesting looking recipe for a Dutch pastry. As soon as I read the ingredients and saw it used 8 eggs, I decided to give it a go.
8 fresh eggs
2 cups organic flour
2 cups organic milk (I used raw)
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla bean paste (her recipe calls for 1 vanilla bean, scraped but I didn't one)
1/2 tsp organic cinnamon
5 TBSP organic unsalted butter
Whisk 8 eggs in a bowl.
Stir in the flour, vanilla, cinnamon.
Add milk and salt. *Mixture will be slightly lumpy.
Cover the bowl and let it sit on the kitchen counter overnight. *My husband worried about this being left out with the raw eggs and milk but from the comments, it seems that it is fine. Ours was fine.
|Mixture will look bubbly in the morning.
Place butter in the bottom of a 9×13 pan and put the pan into the oven until butter is melted. Remove from the oven and swirl the butter to coat the bottom and sides of the pan.
Whisk batter until there are no remaining lumps.
Pour the mixture into the pan.
Bake for 30-45 minutes, or until the middle of the puff has risen and turns golden brown.
We served with maple syrup, although I did try it with a sprinkle of confectionery sugar to see if it tasted like fried dough.
The Verdict? It was very good. The boys ate half of the pastry by themselves. It was very eggy flavored and tasted a lot like french toast. I will definitely be making this again. It is a super easy recipe for company too. Next time I will serve with bacon and fresh fruit on the side. And coffee for me. (Nutella would also make this taste amazing!)
