Start your morning off right with this delicious, easy-to-make Dutch baby recipe loaded with fresh, sliced stone fruit.
What is a Dutch Baby?
A Dutch baby, also known as a German pancake, is a deliciously light and airy pancake that is cooked in the oven and climbs up the sides of the pan. To me, it is really similar to a souffle and the best part is that you can add in as many toppings as you’d like. This is one of my favorite things to make on the weekend and it is always a big hit with the family.
Dutch Baby Toppings
These German pancakes are incredibly versatile when it comes to toppings. I prefer a little whipped cream, powdered sugar and fruit, but you can also add things like honey or maple syrup.
Since stone fruit is starting to roll through the door at Heinen’s, I knew they would be perfect to top off this Dutch baby. Heinen’s always carries the best selection of fresh, seasonal produce, and let me just say, the peaches that they have now are so sweet.
Here are my favorite toppings for a Dutch baby:
- Yellow Peaches
- White Peaches
- Whipped Cream
- Powdered Sugar
How to Make a Dutch Baby
This recipe doesn’t even require a whisk and a bowl. All you do is add all of the batter ingredients to a blender and mix on high speed for 20-30 seconds, and that’s it. I like to set it to the side at room temperature while I preheat my cast iron skillet in the oven at 425°F.
Once your oven is preheated, remove the pan, add butter and as soon as it melts, pour in the batter. From there, place the pan in the oven and let it cook for 20 minutes. Once it’s done, top it with as many delicious toppings as you can and eat it immediately.
I can’t say it enough, this recipe is awesome and so easy to make. Have fun cooking!
