I would like to make a Dutch baby recipe but do not have an ovenproof skillet. Is there some other type of baking dish I could use? Or could I make this in individual dishes? —J.R. Hamilton, New York
Good question! Our home economists went back to the drawing board after hearing from you and tested the recipe twice, once using a 9-inch pie plate and once using four 8-ounce custard cups. The recipe turned out fine in both cases. The Dutch Baby in the 9-inch pie plate baked about 20-25 minutes, and the custard cups baked about 15 minutes. In each custard cup, use 1-1/2 teaspoons of butter and 1/2 cup of batter. Place the custard cups on a baking sheet to make transporting them to and from the oven easier.
