Dutch Baby is a fanciful pancake of sorts. It’s like a giant,rustic, delicious popover that can be shared for breakfast or brunch.
Unlike it’s cousin the pancake, the Dutch baby comes together in a jiff. No monotonous pouring and flipping here, you simply throw the ingredients in a blender and whirl until everything comes together in a smooth batter. You pour the batter into a hot buttered skillet, bake and serve.
For minimal effort, you’re rewarded with a whimsical, lightly sweetened canvas fit for any number of accoutrements like berries, nuts, syrups, whipped cream, preserves, powdered sugar, just to name a few.
My favorite way to eat a Dutch baby is to sprinkle the whole thing with powdered sugar then tear off pieces and dip them into warm maple or hickory syrup. If you’re feeling more refined than the “tear and dip” method, feel free to cut your Dutch baby into slices. Another fun way to eat a Dutch baby is to bake and serve it in individual sized skillets and let friends and family top their Dutch baby with whatever toppings they please. How delightful is that!?!?
Now go forth and make Dutch babies!Print
