Dutch Baby Pancakes

three ways

I love a Dutch baby. They can be sweet, they can be savory, it’s a base for any flavors you want. Here I did three versions of these Dutch Baby Pancakes; one with grapefruit and vanilla sugar; one with powdered sugar and maple syrup; and another with ham, egg and some gruyere cheese. Not only is this a great breakfast-for-dinner kinda thing, it’s a great prep ahead for brunch. And, it’s a bit of a showstopper with that giant puff in the oven.

If you haven’t had a Dutch baby before think of it as a big baked crepe or giant pop-over. It’s light and airy on the inside thanks to the very eggy batter and the hot oven it gets cooked in. Where you can get really innovative is in the toppings. Use what you have, whatever you like. I like to make these for dinner and make two or three, keeping the batter stored in the fridge. I’ll use a blender, pour it in a mason jar and when I’m ready to eat, preheat that pan in the oven and I’m ready to Dutch baby.

Dutch babies. Two ways. 1C milk 4 eggs 1C flour pinch of salt 2-4 tbsp butter Heat oven and cast iron pan to 425F. When oven reaches temp, add 1-2 tablespoons of butter to pan, half of your batter and return to oven to cook for 15 minutes. Once dutch baby is nice and inflated, and has a slight bit of color on top, remove from the oven and top it up. Then eat!
