Introduction: Dutch Baby (or Dutch Pancake)
A Dutch Baby is a big, fluffy pancake with elements of a crepe and popover thrown in for good measure. It's very easy to make, doesn't take much time, and since it isn't a fancy-looking dish, even if you mess it up a little no one will notice because it will still taste great!
The ingredients are very basic items you probably already have in your cupboard and fridge:
- 3 tablespoons of butter
- 3 eggs
- 3/4 cup of flour
- 1/2 cup of milk
- 1 tablespoon of sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon of salt
- 1 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
- pinch of cinnamon
- 2 mixing bowls
- 1 oven-safe (preferably cast-iron) pan
Step 1: Dry Ingredients
While you are getting your ingredients together, preheat your oven to 425 degrees and put your oven-safe (preferably cast iron) skillet into it.
Gather your dry ingredients (flour, sugar, salt and cinnamon) and add them to a medium-sized mixing bowl. Mix them together with a fork or a whisk until they are combined.
Step 2: Wet Ingredients
In a separate bowl, combine your wet ingredients (eggs, milk and vanilla) and mix thoroughly.
Step 3: Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients
As the title implies, pour your wet ingredients into the bowl with your dry ingredients and mix gently until you have a well-incorporated batter. It's ok for it to be a little lumpy.
Step 4: Remove Plott Hound From Kitchen
This step is optional...really only applies if you have a crazy Plott hound who likes to steal your stuff if you aren't paying attention to her like you should be.
Step 5: Butter the Pan
By now your oven should be preheated to 425 degrees, so CAREFULLY remove your hot pan from the oven (or slide your rack out a bit so you can access the pan) and add your butter to it. Spread the butter around as it's melting so the entire bottom of the pan is coated.
Step 6: Add Batter
Pour your batter into the pan and return to oven for about 20 minutes (or until a nice golden brown).Remove pan from oven carefully.
Step 7: Enjoy Your Dutch Baby!
Plate up your dutch baby and add some syrup, powdered sugar, fresh berries, cinnamon and sugar or whatever your favorite way to enjoy a pancake is.
This recipe is great for breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner or late night snack (or all the above)! Enjoy!
