Dutch...Dutch ...Baby!!!

I wonder why they call this a Dutch baby when they also call it a German pancake? Anyhoo...I made this yummy breakfast the other day and thought I would share the recipe for those who have never had it before. I'll never forget the first time I made a Dutch bay... about 10 years ago I threw a baby shower for a friend....This is the perfect dish to make for a brunch. I slather on the butter a bit of lemon and powder sugar...Yum!


*Dutch Baby*
3 tablespoons butter, melted and divided
 1/2 cup flour
3 tablespoons vanilla sugar, plus extra for serving
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 cup whole milk, room temperature
2 large eggs, room temperature
Lemon wedges
Powder sugar for sprinkling
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Place 2 tablespoons of the melted butter into a 10-inch cast iron skillet and place in the oven. Set the remaining tablespoon of melted butter aside to cool slightly.
Wait 10 minutes before assembling the other ingredients.
Place the flour, vanilla sugar, salt, milk, eggs and remaining tablespoon of melted butter into the bowl of a food processor or blender and process for 30 seconds. Carefully pour the batter into the preheated skillet. Bake on the middle rack of the oven for 30 to 35 minutes or until the edges are puffed and brown. Sprinkle with additional vanilla sugar and serve with lemon wedges.



  1. I'll have to buy a cast-iron skillet so I could try this yummy recipe!

  2. Worker Bee and I had these at a Bed & Breakfast in Sonora (gold country) on our honeymoon 20 years ago. I used to make them all the time. I haven't in years and I don't think I've ever made one for Baby Bee! Next weekend!

  3. Oh yummm, have you made these with whole wheat pastry flour. I do half/half. They do not puff quite as much but very good!!! Clarice
