We needed some fencing, and fast. So, hubby and the kids got to work building some wattle fencing for the duck yard.
Now the dream has finally become a reality.
WARNING: Do not get ducks if you are not prepared to watch their adorable antics, every time you walk by. I’m Serious!
Why Ducks? I love my Chickens, but wanted a second source for eggs. They are amazing at putting out the eggs! Secretly though, I just love those cute little ducks.
The French say that baked goods are superior when duck eggs are used. I can’t wait to get some of those beautiful eggs!
½ C. Butter
2 C. Milk
2 teaspoons. Vanilla Extract
2 C. Flour
5 Tablespoons. Sugar
This fills two Cast Iron pans (8-9 inch skillets).
Divide the 1/2 C. of butter between each cast iron pan; place pans in a 425 degree oven until the butter is melted and bubbly (you want it melted, but don’t burn the butter).
Combine the milk, eggs, and vanilla in a large bowl. Beat well and slowly stir in flour and sugar. Beat until smooth. Pour the batter into the hot pans.
Bake for 20 minutes or until well-raised and slightly brown on top.
We love to drizzle lemon juice, berries, or maple syrup on top.
