Video Attempt: Dutch Baby / Meet Teddy!

At the childbirthing class Matt and I took, they told us that in the first couple of weeks of our newborn's life, we should stay rested by "napping when the baby naps." By napping surely they meant shooting a bon appétempt video, right?

In other words, Matt and I are so happy to introduce you to our son, Teddy! And though it goes without saying, I'll say it anyway: he's the absolute BEST.
makes 2 servings

2 tablespoons butter
4 eggs
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
2/3 cup whole milk

for the topping:
2 tablespoons butter, melted
juice of 1lemon (I recommend using a Meyer lemon if you've got one)
1/2 cup powdered sugar

Preheat the oven to 425F.

To prepare the Dutch baby, melt the butter in a 12-inch cast iron skillet over low heat. Mix the eggs, flour and milk in a blender on medium speed until just blended, 5 to 10 seconds. Pour the batter into the skillet with the melted butter.

Place the skillet in the oven and bake until the top puffs up and is light golden, about 25 minutes.

When the Dutch baby is done, drizzle the melted butter over the top, and then sprinkle with the lemon juice and dust with the powered sugar. Cut into 6 wedges and serve immediately.

Shaun watches all of your video attempts with me and just said... "you didn't tell me it was the lady with the funny videos that was pregnant" // re: our twitter convo). Good grief woman, you look amazing! Love and light to you, Matt, and Teddy (and Mavis) in this new crazy-cool adventure.

Carmen said...

i like the line about your favorite family activity. i recently asked myself when it would no longer be appropriate to kiss m all over her body...

Sara in America said...

This looks delicious. MORE Teddy, please! (I think Mavis is in love.)

Amelia Morris said...

Congratulations on the addition to your family, he looks absolutely precious! I love how Mavis is cozying right up to her new friend, what a top-notch babysitter.

Kara said...

Instant classic!! Loved this so much. xoxo

Lindsey Gideon said...

Love me some dutch babies, but not nearly even remotely close to how much I love meeting Teddy in this video. So precious!

Shelley said...

In a sad world where so many children are ignored, all I can say to this post is: lucky baby! Blessings on all.

Kara said...

P.S. Did you guys hear RadioLab this weekend?!?? About the effects of stress on the body. The last story relates directly to Matt's book of choice and covered me head to toe in goose bumps.

Pia said...

They both look absolutely delicious! I'm due in 5 weeks and while watching the video just kept thinking, "I get one of those soon!" (a baby, not a Dutch baby. Though hopefully maybe both). Congratulations!

Amelia Morris said...

Awww, so exciting! I'm already nostalgic for those two days in the hospital afterwards… it's all so SPECIAL. Wishing you the best!! xo

Allie Beauchesne said...

So many thoughts! So glad you didn't really go on a "maternity leave" and are back so soon with this. Teddy---gahh! How ridiculously cute is he? Love at first blink. Mavis on the couch looking lonely but yet content--also awesome. All around fantastic, two very enthusiastic thumbs up.

Amelia Morris said...

Thanks so much, Allie!!

tori said...

Oh my- congratulations. He is absolutely gorgeous. Nb, the novelty of kissing their faces doesn't get old. What gets even better is when they open mouth gum your cheeks right back. So good.

Amelia,
I just found your site; love it. You are such a hilarious, down-to-earth gal...and your baby is super-cute!
Thank-you!

Amelia Morris said...

awww, thanks!!

Katherine {eggton} said...

Dudes! This is so exciting! Can you please make a video of Mavis teaching Teddy how to crawl? Or Teddy teaching Mavis how to crawl--however it plays out is fine with me. I realize that this request might come a little bit early, so I'm prepared to wait a week or two.:)

Meaghan said...

I haven't had a spare moment to watch the Teddy video until now, and I'm jumping up and down like a frantic Bela Karolyi for you all! He's precious. Perfect 10! I want to stitch him something...can I? E-mail me, I guess? oh[dot]meaghan[at]gmail[dot]com

Amelia Morris said...

lolzzz... and emailing you now!!

ElizSeg said...

Just so you know, Mavis is a purrrrrfectly good choice to watch adorable baby Teddy according to F.Puss, who was Ernest Hemingway's yellow-eyed, six-toed, babysitting CAT. Mavis has F. Puss beat simply by being a dog. Duh.

Not. Kidding. You writers need to be able to depend on your domestic animals for something more than a little cuddle...
