Dutch Baby Recipe

This recipe was a gift from the matchmakers who first introduced N and I -- Pat and Frank Meyer
I'd never heard of a dutch baby until Pat treated me one morning in the late 1970's. Seemed like a simple act of oven magic to this small town girl.
The recipe card has been replaced at least once since then. If I put here, I'll never have to write it again . . . I hope. :)
