Big Pancake: Vehicle for Butter

I think I've posted about the big pancake, otherwise known as a Dutch baby, one of my current obsessions. This particular recipe calls for a crapload of butter (1/4 cup or half a stick) that should be divided between two pans. Okay, so I forgot to do that part and poured the whole thing into one pan.
Too much butter. Mister couldn't eat it for fear of his arteries closing in. Me, I don't have that problem.

Can you see that pool of butter, glistening in the afternoon light? Look at the pancake, nine o'clock slot.

    I made these from a recipe a while back, it didn’t have that much butter but it was reeeeally good. I’ll see if I can find it


  2. No worries. I’m just not going to use all that butter if I’m only using the one 10-inch skillet. There are variations of this recipe all over the place. This one actually says to let the batter stand 30 minutes before cooking. I’ve done that once.
