Simple Dutch Baby Pancake Recipe

You might have noticed recently that I’ve become a little obsessed with the Dutch Baby pancake.

I’d seen them around the internet for a long time, but I was honestly intimidated by it. They looked too cool for me to make and I didn’t have a cast iron skillet, so I brushed my Dutch Baby dreams aside and stuck to what I knew, pancakes.

One morning, I decided enough was enough,  could no longer resit this tempting breakfast.

And one time, and I’m hooked! SO EASY!

I just blend all the ingredients in my NutriBullet while I’m heating up the oven and the pie dish.

Then you simply melt some butter in the pan, pour in the batter, and wait 18 minutes.

Seriously, it’s that easy!

I’d love to know if you ever make Dutch Baby Pancakes. What are you favourite pancake toppings?

  1. As soon as I looked at this, I mentally revisted all of the dutch baby posts I’ve seen lately on Pinterest and such..and nearly wrote the recipe off before I even looked at it. But it looks so easy!

    And for some reason I really want to make this and throw in a handful of chocolate chips and some orange zest, and it’s making me so hungry..

  2. How simple is that! I have never made these pancakes before but I will be as soon as the weekend arrives! Thanks for the recipe.

  3. Looks delicious Clare – and so easy. Can’t wait to try it. It’s something quite new to me! thanks Clare..
