One of our recent weekend breakfast/brunch treats has been to make a Dutch baby pancake, a German pancake or popover. The ingredients are simple and usually on hand. Prep is quick since everything is mixed up in the blender. Plus, it's another great use for our cast iron skillet! Our 10" skillet Dutch baby was enough to serve the two of us. Dutch baby pancakes will puff up as they bake in the oven and usually fall by the time you serve them, so it's recommended that you eat these immediately when they are done. You can top them with a dusting of powdered sugar, fresh fruit, Nutella, Trader Joe's Cookie Butter, or any other sweet combination you desire. We threw some leftover apple pie on ours and served it with an egg scramble. I loved the crispy pancake edges!
After trying a few different recipes, my favorite one still comes from Elise at Simply Recipes. Get your Dutch baby pancake recipe here!
