Dutch Baby

I have always wanted to try make one of these, so this morning, Becca and I attempted our first Dutch Baby. It came out super yummy! It is like mix between a crepe and a pancake. Delish!


1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 cup whole or 2% milk

2 large eggs

2 tablespoons granulated sugar

1-teaspoon vanilla

2 tablespoons unsalted butter

Pinch of salt


  1. Place the flour, milk, eggs, sugar, vanilla, and salt in a blender or food processor. Blend for 10 seconds, scrape down the sides, and then blend for another 10 seconds. Continue until everything is mixed well. Let the batter rest for at least 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, place the skillet on a middle rack to warm along with the oven. Heat the oven to 425°F.
  3. When you are ready to make the Dutch Baby, remove the skillet from the oven and place it on top of the stove. Add the butter and swirl the pan to melt the butter and coat the bottom and sides of the pan. I used a brush to make sure the butter was all up over the sides.
  4.  Pour the batter on top of the butter. Tilt the pan if needed so that the batter runs evenly to all sides. Place the skillet in the oven.
  5. Bake until the Dutch baby is puffed, lightly browned across the top, and darker brown on the sides and edges, about 20 minutes.
  6. Add any toppings- syrup, jam, fruit, etc.
It was light and airy and the edges were perfectly brown. Next time I might leave it in a little longer to get the top a bit more brown, but overall it was a delicious success!
