Savoury Dutch Baby with Ham and Cheese
I keep saying it, but I do love my cast iron pans. Thanks to Lodge Cast Iron Australia for supplying them to me. Although they are heavy there are literally the next best thing in my kitchen after the Thermomix. If you are fresh out of cast iron for this recipe, I suggest you invest...but if not, you need a decent frying pan and heat it to as high as you dare. You will then get the Dutch Baby result we are seeking. High heat. Cold Batter. Lots of butter. Those are my tips. Pancakes for dinner?? Totally.

Place a cast iron frying pan with a dollop of butter into the oven and preheat to 220°C fan forced.
When the pan and oven are heated, add the iced water to the batter and blend until well mixed. Working as quickly as possible, to preserve the heat of the oven and pan, pour enough batter into the frying pan to cover the base completely. Return to the oven for 15 minutes until puffed and golden
Stir the creme fraiche and mustard together with some seasoning to taste in a small bowl. Set aside.
Remove the pancake from the oven, add a few tablespoons of the creme fraiche and mustard mixture, top with ham, cheese and broccoli, drizzle with a little more of the creme fraiche and return to the oven for around 5 minutes until golden and cheese has melted. Serve immediately.
