About Dutch Baby Pancake Recipe

‘If a popover and a pancake fell in love, this baby would be their baby.’ Also known as German Pancakes or Dutch Puff, this basically looks like a popover or Yorkshire pudding but that is sweet. It is so simple to assemble, and can be whisked together in a blender, poured into a hot skillet and baked in the oven. Not only is it simple to put together, but it requires ingredients already available in your regular pantry. This puffed up pancake is so spectacular hot out of the oven. You will love making this one. Traditionally this is served with butter, lemon and icing sugar – but the variations are endless. The texture is crisp yet soft inside – serve with chocolate sauce and fresh fruits and you are in for a true treat and a breakfast fit for a king!

Dutch Baby Pancake

Ingredients to make Dutch Baby Pancake

  • 3 tbsp or 45 gms butter
  • 1 tbsp or 15 gms granulated sugar, optional
  • 1/2 cup or 150 ml milk, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup or 75 gms plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • A pinch of salt
  • 150 gms good quality dark chocolate
  • 125 gms blueberries
  • 125 gms strawberries / raspberries
  • 50 gms slivered almonds
  • Icing sugar, to serve

How to make Dutch Baby Pancake

  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees celsius.
  2. In a mixing bowl or a blender, whisk together the milk, flour, baking powder, eggs, vanilla extract and salt until it becomes a smooth batter. Add sugar if you like. (Since I was serving this with chocolate sauce, I skipped it.)
  3. Heat an oven proof skillet or a cast iron skillet over high heat. Make sure the pan is really hot before you pour in the batter. The secret to a show-stopping Dutch baby is a hot skillet. Add in one tablespoon of the butter.
  4. Allow the butter to melt and bubble and while it's hot pour half the batter into the centre of the pan.
  5. Now place the pan on the middle shelf of the oven and bake for 12-15 mins until the pancake has risen and become golden. While the pancake is the oven, melt the dark chocolate and set aside or you could use Nutella instead.
  6. Remove the pan from the oven and serve the pancake while still hot with a drizzle of dark chocolate, berries, almonds and a generous dusting of icing sugar.
  7. Serve it hot.
