Alsatian Babies

These are individual Dutch babies with a French twist.

6 eggs
1 cup flour
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Meyer lemons wedges
icing sugar

Preheat the oven to 475 degrees.
Melt a dab of butt in each of 6 small oval ramekins in the oven. In other words you are getting the dishes hot and the butter melted. This is like making Yorkshire pudding.
Mix up the batter. Ladle about 1/4 cup of the batter into each ramekin and bake for about 8 minutes. This is a great dish to watch cook. It is good to keep an eye on them to make sure they don't burn.

Serve with the butter, lemon wedges, icing sugar in a tea strainer. But of course some people will want to put something else on them, like jam or syrup.
