Dutch Baby

Dutch baby is a simple, pillowy, crisp, cross between a pancake and a popover

I am not sure why I didn’t make these before this. These Dutch Babies are genius! You do not have to slave over the stove making pancake after pancake. Well its not exactly a pancake, it is more like a crepe than a pancake. Yeah, its like a big giant crepe. It is really easy to make. Just combine the batter and set it in the oven to cook. You can add your fruit on top of it when it comes out of the oven. Just like a pancake I love mine with Maple Syrup. This weekend you should make this for your family. You will be glad you did.

    This looks delicious, I will definitely have to try. I love my dutch ovens (I actually did a few posts about my cast iron just recently). Sounds like a great breakfast meal! Thanks for sharing 🙂

    I cant believe how fluffy it is! I can imagine it with some fresh fruit and cream over top as well!

    I love Dutch pancakes, but more when there’s apple thrown in on top before baking. However they’re made though, you’re right, they are SO much more simple than regular pancakes! Yours is gorgeous.

    Regular oven pans work as well. I’ve been making these for years. Just spray the pan with a little Pam or coat it in butter (delicious!). Sprinkle with lemon juice and powdered sugar when it’s done. So delish!

    Omit the sugar and use 3 eggs and 1 cup each of the flour and milk. Put about a teaspoon oil in a 9×13 metal baking pan and heat in oven before adding batter, bake about 18-20 minutes and you have an English Yorkshire Pudding. We eat it with our Sunday roast smothered with gravy…yummy!

      I have heard of that. I think it is is similar to a popover.
