What is a dutch baby?

A dutch baby is very similar to a traditional pancake only you pour batter into a hot skillet and then baked at high temperature in the oven. The dish actually originated in Germany and is most commonly served with fresh squeezed lemon juice. 

Whether you call it a german pancake recipe or a dutch pancake, this dutch baby pancake recipe is always delicious!

Blueberry Dutch Baby pancake:

Ingredients:

  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 1/4 fresh blueberries
  • 1/2 tsp lemon zest

Tip: use fresh ingredients to make this single large pancake in a 9 or 10-inch cast iron skillet. Be sure to use an oven-safe skillet and an oven mitt when handling the dish.

Note: you can also use a medium bowl to combine eggs, whole milk and flour. A blender works best but a food processor or hand mixer would work too.

  • Top your dutch baby with fresh granny smith apples, cinnamon sugar and heavy cream.

These are a huge hit with the entire family! We also love this classic dutch babyfrench toast casserole and cinnamon roll casserole for Sunday brunch too.

Why did my dutch baby deflate?

  • The pancake will rise because of the stream created with the milk and egg mixture in the oven.
  • It will naturally deflate moments after leaving the oven.
  • To get the maximum volume be sure to have your oven and skillet piping hot before pouring in the pancake batter.
  • Mixing the batter in a blender until it is foamy also helps it to rise and puff up.

The addition of blueberries makes this our favorite dutch baby to date.  But the possibilities are endless!  

We love to use fresh berries found at the farmers market in this great recipe. I can see cherry and peach dutch babies in our near future too.
