Dutch Babies – a German pancake

This puffy pancake looks so fancy and impressive, but it is so amazingly easy to make! And it’s delicious! You can put different fruit on it – try peaches or sauteed apples! Any way you serve it, this pancake is deliciously beautiful!


What you need:

  • 5 eggs
  • ½ cup milk
  • ¾ cup unbleached flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ stick of butter
  • 1/8 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 cups of mixed berries

How to Do it:

Heat the oven to 400 degrees.  Put the butter in a 10 to 12 inch cast iron skillet and let it melt until bubbly.


While it’s melting, put the eggs in a blender and process on medium-high until they are foamy.


Add the flour, milk, salt, spices, sugar and vanilla and process until well mixed.

Pour the batter for the pancake over the butter in the pan and return to the oven.


Bake for about 15 – 20 minutes, until the pancake is puffy and lightly browned.

Remove from the oven.  Using a wire strainer, shake the powdered sugar over the top of the pancake.

Serve with fresh berries and jam.

I like to serve candied bacon on the side!


Serves 4
