What Is A Dutch Baby?

A Dutch Baby is also known as a puffed pancake or sometimes called German pancakes. The batter resembles a pancake batter but is slightly thinner in consistency. A Dutch Baby is traditionally cooked in a skillet and when cooked, resembles a crepe or a popover.

A Dutch Baby begins with the thin, pancake-like batter which is poured into a hot skillet. When it cooks, the batter will start to rise and puff up. When the edges of the Dutch Baby begin to brown, it is ready to come out of the oven. When the puffed pancake has the chance to cool only slightly, the puff collapses into the pan and what remains is a pancake with the texture of a delicate crepe with buttery-crisp edges.

The center is perfect for adding berries or a light dusting of powdered sugar.

Dutch Baby

Here’s how a Dutch Baby comes together…

Step 1

Heat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Place a small amount of butter into a small, 6-inch skillet and place it inside the oven so that the skillet can heat up while the oven preheats.

Step 2

Meanwhile, whisk together 1 egg, ¼ cup of milk, a touch of vanilla, and sugar. Next, add in flour and a pinch of salt. Carefully remove the hot skillet from the oven, swirl the melted butter around the pan and pour the batter into the hot skillet.  Cook for about 20 minutes.

If you want to make a berry filled Dutch Baby, add 1/4 cup of fresh blueberries or sliced strawberries to the bottom of the skillet and pour the batter over the top of the berries and bake for 20 minutes.

Can You Make A Dutch Baby Without A Cast Iron Skillet?

Yes! When I make a Dutch Baby For One, I most often use a small 6-inch cast iron skillet but the 5-inch dish that I use for many of the recipes found here at One Dish Kitchen is also a great dish to use.

How To Serve A Dutch Baby (Puffed Pancake)

A puffed pancake is already buttery so there is no need to add more butter. I love sprinkling a little powdered sugar over the top or adding additional berries, or a touch of syrup.

    The very best way to serve this delicious Dutch Baby is with butter a few squeezes of lemon and powdered sugar. YUM!

    I really like this recipe and have made it several times in my 6″ cast iron skillet. I’ve used blueberries, but also chopped strawberries. Mine is usually more golden brown than this picture shows, but I like it that way.

    I have even doubled this recipe and made the doubled recipe in my 10″ skillet. It’s worked just fine, but the temp or baking time may need to be adjusted in some ovens. It doesn’t need adjusting for mine.

    This beautiful puffed pancake for one is just as delicious as it looks! My husband and I really enjoyed this recipe. He’s requested it again for Father’s Day with a side of bacon and sausage.

    Oh my gosh this is the cutest thing ever, I am loving this mini dutch baby for one, so pretty! I have one of those mini skillets, but I have only ever used it as a spoon rest 🙂 Now my kids are in school at the same time I may have to start making fancy little breakfasts like this for myself 🙂
