"My mother frequently asks for this recipe when she's in the mood for something special - it's a breakfast favorite! The batter is very thin, but puffs up and may have a variable thickness throughout, however a shallow pie dish is just fine. It is very buttery. The mini chocolate chips contribute to the overall sweetness of the pancake, which can be served with a variety of additions: a fruit sauce, cream, powdered sugar or even a delicate drizzling of maple syrup. However, this is plenty sweet on its own -- unlike most pancakes, these are sweet enough to stand alone.

The ease and speed of this dutch baby gives it an advantage over ordinary pancakes."

"This was WAY TOO SWEET!!! I even made it with milk instead of half and half to lessen the richness of it. My kids loved it but what kids don't love a ton of sugar for breakfast? Yuck! Will not be making it again."
