It’s Christmas week!
I can’t believe December has rushed along so quickly. I feel like I haven’t eaten nearly enough festive food or listened to enough Christmas carols.
Also, I have some last-minute shopping to do. How about you?
This Gingerbread Dutch Baby is absolutely divine. The spices aren’t overwhelming, but more than subtle.
Helen and I absolutely adored it. We ate it all between the two of us (with breaks). I groaned as I took bite after bite. Nom.
This would be perfect for an easy Christmas morning breakfast!

In a 9-10-inch skillet, melt the butter. Swirl it up the sides of the pan. Pour in the batter. Bake for 15-20 minutes, checking at the 12-minute mark.
Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve with extra butter. A dollop of whipped cream would make this even more amazing...
