Dutch Baby

A Dutch Baby is a weird little treat. It is one of those things where you read the name and have no idea what it is, then you look at it and you might be even more confused. A Dutch Baby is like the funky child of a pancake and a crepe. It is eggy and light like a crepe but has the substance and fluff of a pancake.

The batter of a Dutch Baby is blended together and then poured into a hot skillet with melted butter and baked. The result in this puffy cake covered with nooks and crannies. Dutch Babies are normally served for breakfast, but there are no rules here, so you do you!

A Dutch Baby can be served up with a sprinkle of powdered sugar, syrup, or fresh fruit. It is a pretty blank canvas and can be spruced up easily with your favorite flavors. You can also add spices to the actual batter to give the flavor more depth.

Dutch Baby

  1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees (F).
  2. In a blender (I used this Nutribullet) combine the eggs, flour, milk, and sugar. Blend until fully combined and smooth. You can do this by hand if you don’t have a blender, just be sure to get the mixture as smooth as possible.
  3. When the oven is fully preheated place the butter in a 10-inch oven-safe skillet or baking dish (I used this Lodge skillet) and place it in the oven until the butter is melted.
  4. When the butter has fully melted add the batter to the skillet and place it back in the oven.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes, then reduce the heat to 300 degrees (F) and bake for 5 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven and serve immediately.
