Grape Dutch Baby


Heat the oven to 450°F.  Put a large (10-inch) cast-iron or ovenproof skillet in the oven.

Beat eggs with an electric mixer at high speed until frothy, then beat in flour, milk, vanilla, and salt, and continue to beat until smooth, about 1 minute more (batter will be thin).  Remove the skillet from the oven and add two tablespoons of the butter, swirling to cover the pan.  Pour in the batter and return to the oven.  Bake until puffed and golden brown, 14-19 minutes.

While pancake is baking, melt the remaining 3 tablespoons of butter over high heat in another skillet and add the grapes, brown sugar, and cinnamon.  Cook quickly until grapes are heated throughout and sugar has melted.  Spoon grapes over the pancake, sprinkle with confectioners’ sugar, and serve.
