Dutch Baby Pancake

If a pancake and a popover were to have a baby, it’d be the Dutch baby pancake. An American take on the German pancake (or German Pannekoeken), it was apparently made popular in the 1900s by German immigrants. With its golden crust and custard centre, it’s the perfect weekend treat.

Ingredients (for 4 people):

  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • Powdered sugar (for garnish)
  • Jam (optional)
  • Maple syrup (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to  425°F.
  2. Using an immersion blender, mix the milk, eggs, sugar, flour, vanilla and salt for 10 seconds. A liquidy batter should begin to form. Blend for an extra 10 seconds.
  3. Put the batter in a bowl, and set aside for 20 min.
  4. Place a 10-inch ovenproof skillet on the middle rack of the oven. Allow the skillet to warm, before removing and putting on stove. Add butter to the skillet, it should melt and cover the entiretly of skillet base.
  5. Pour the batter into the skillet. Tilt so it touches all sides, and put skillet back in the oven. The Dutch baby will begin to form.
  6. Bake for 20 min. The Dutch baby should be golden, with slightly darker edges.
  7. Whilst hot, dust with powdered sugar. Cut into wedges, and serve with either jam or maple syrup.
  8. Enjoy!
