Super Easy Dutch Baby Pancake Recipe is a delicious breakfast that’s quickly whisked together in the blender then baked in a hot skillet until golden and puffy!
Dutch Baby Pancakes are known by several names – German Pancake, a Bismarck or a Dutch Puff, I’ve just always known them as Dutch Baby Pancakes. Any way you spell it, they’re delicious!
The batter for the Dutch Baby Pancake is quickly whisked together in your blender, much like my basic crepe recipe.
The batter will be quite thin, nothing like your traditional pancakes. You’ll let it rest for at least 15 minutes to give the flour a chance to absorb into the liquid.
While the batter is resting, heat up your oven and stick in a cast iron skillet. Once the oven is heated and the skillet is hot, pull it out and add some butter!
The hot skillet will immediately begin to cook the pancake, so you’ll want to act fast.
Pour in your batter and pop it right back into the hot oven.
The pancake will puff up just like a popover does, then fall slightly when removed from the oven, creating the perfect cavity for filling!
Traditionally, you’ll dust the whole pancaked with some powdered sugar and serve with some fresh berries and a dollop of whipped cream.
Here are some other topping ideas you might enjoy:
- Top with whipped cream and drizzle with chocolate syrup
- Spread lemon curd over the top and add fresh raspberries
- Cut up bananas and drizzle with honey
- Top with apple pie filling and a scoop of vanilla ice cream
My whole family LOVES this fun and delicious Dutch Baby Pancake recipe.
Either way you serve it, you’re going to love it too!
