What is a dutch baby?

A dutch baby pancake is a popular German pancake. It can be served for breakfast or dessert! It is almost like a big popover meets Yorkshire pudding. Dutch babies are baked in the oven rather than being fried/in a skillet like a pancake.

Dutch Baby with Cranberry Compote

What ingredients do you need for this dutch baby recipe?

For the dutch baby batter: we are using large eggs, all-purpose flour, lemon zest, lemon juice (optional), whole milk, sugar, vanilla extract, and salt to taste.

Unsalted butter: The butter is being used to melt in the cast-iron, and once it’s bubbling, that’s when you add in your batter! It is an essential part of this recipe as it helps with the browning and fluffing of the dutch baby.

Whipped cream: Using heavy cream, sugar and vanilla extract!

To whisk: For the batter and whipped cream, you can use a hand mixer or blender!

To top: We are topping with a cranberry compote (recipe below!) and maple syrup but other toppings that can be used are assorted berries, like strawberries or raspberries, whole, or you can top with jam as well.

*Other fun toppings can include chocolate, like nutella or syrup!

*You can also choose to make this savory, and can add ham, cheese, bacon, prosciutto, or eggs.
