Lemon Peel Dutch Baby with Pink Peppercorn Berries

When I've eaten Dutch babies in the past, they've always been dressed with just lemon juice and some confectioners sugar.  Seeking that same hint of lemon in this recipe, we added Spicewalla lemon peel to the batter, making it bright and fruity. Alyse, our wonderful Spicewalla chef, then combined crushed pink peppercorns with sugar, creating a sweet, floral, yet mildly spicy coating to the berry medley. Topped with powdered sugar, this fluffy, light, and bright breakfast is a treat that anyone and everyone will enjoy.
