New Year's Day Breakfast

 The CookingThyme crew enjoyed a lovely New Year's breakfast this morning. We made a family favorite, dutch babies, and some deliciously rich hot cocoa.
 Our favorite dutch babies toppings are cream cheese + raspberry jam, powdered sugar + lemon juice, and the classic butter + maple syrup. These can also be made savory with a slice of ham and a bit of gruyere. 
 This recipe begins on the stove, and then moves to the oven.
