When I was a teenager, every year I looked forward to the Christmas brunch party thrown by m dance teacher for her student assistants. Patty, my dance teacher, adored Christmas, so much so that her guest bathroom was decorated for the holiday 365 days a year. She always had the biggest Christmas tree I’ve ever seen, and her walls were completely covered with Christmas stocking. It was magical.

She also served an amazing breakfast that included Dutch Baby Bunnies. These are eggy oven pancakes that puff up with you pour them into a hot pan of melted butter. They’re a bit like Yorkshire pudding or a pancake version of a popover. Also, they’re completely delicious.

The versatility of this recipe adds to the fun. You can add in little bits of bacon or small pieces of chopped up fruit. You can top them with syrup or cooked fruit or sticky sausages. I love food with possibilities. The customization makes this recipe perfect for a party. That and the fact that it’s nearly effortless to make.
