A Dutch baby pancake is a sweet popover baked in the oven. It’s typically served for breakfast with a sweet lemon butter on top, but I topped mine with Nutella, berries, sliced almonds, and powdered sugar. You can honestly top it with whatever you like. A Dutch baby might look fancy, but it’s incredibly easy to make. Just blend all the ingredients in a blender and pour the batter into a heated cast iron pan. Place it in the oven and wait for all the magic to happen. When it comes out, it should be very puffy. The inside is moist like a pancake and the outside has a nice crunch to it. Pairing it with Nutella and berries is just pure bliss. This just might be the perfect Valentine’s Day breakfast for your loved one.

 

Ingredients:

2 eggs (room temperature)

2 cups milk (room temperature)

3 tbsp sugar

1 cup flour

Pinch of salt

1 tsp Vanilla

3 tbsp butter, melted 

Toppings:

Nutella 

Strawberries

Blueberries

Powdered sugar 

Sliced almonds 

Instructions:

1 . In a blender, pulse the eggs, milk, sugar, flour, salt, and vanilla. After a few pulses, scrape the sides of the blender to ensure that no flour is left behind. Blend once again until everything is well incorporated. 

2 . Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Place a 10 inch cast iron pan into the oven for about 10 minutes. This step is crucial. Heating the pan before adding the batter helps create that puffy look of a Dutch baby. 

3 . Pour the melted butter into the hot cast iron pan and swirl it around. Then pour in the pancake batter and place it back in the oven for about 20 minutes. Once it’s done, drizzle with Nutella and top with berries, sliced almonds, and powdered sugar. Serve hot.
