    LOL, Boobs thread was closed.
    Probably not a good idea to start a
    "I love boobs revisited" thread either:oops:

    I've heard it called a german pancake or a dutch baby. It's simple to make.

    It's kind of like a pancake or crepe batter, baked in a pan. Parts of it crisp, and parts of it aren't quite cooked solid so they're kind of soft/custardy. You can put pretty much anything sweet on top at the end, powdered sugar, syrup, preserves, fruit, or a combination of them.

    I mixed this recipe: https://cooking.nytimes.com/recipes/6648-dutch-baby

    With this somewhat annoying video:

    I followed the recipe more than the video, ingredients wise. I didn't bother blending, just used a whisk and got it real smooth. I put nutmeg and vanilla in mine, and I made sure to get the eggs and milk close to room temperature. The NYT article doesn't mention that, but I think it might not rise properly if you pour that stuff in cold.

    I don’t understand how it gets this bad. I have some photos of others I brought back to life but am still trying to figure out Imgur.

    We had lunch at my Grandmother’s on Sunday. We started talking cast iron and she said she has 2 this size so I should take one. She thinks this one may have been my Great Grandmother’s. The outside needs to be cleaned up but the inside is perfect.

    I like the crusty ones, it is always fun when you find out what you got under there.

    Has anyone ever asked one of these old ladies why the outside is so wrecked? I mean, what built up on the OUTSIDE of a pan? I've got pans that Iv'e been using hard for 10 years and the outside doesn't have 1 speck of buildup on it.

    i have a theory that when you drain the fat from the pan, some always drips back onto the outside of the pan and builds up. Most users of cast iron just wipe the inside with a paper towel, never the outside, hence the build up and subsequent cracking of the outside layer over time.
