Dutch Baby Pancakes sound pretty sophisticated to make but the ingredients are pretty basic and easy! Another neat thing about Dutch Baby Pancakes is that they can be served sweet or savory. The only downfall (literally) is that they deflate so quickly but not to worry, that wont compromise on the flavor which is nice and custardy. In this instructable i'll teach you how to make a dutch baby pancake step by step, or you can watch the video tutorial here!
Step 1: Tools and Ingredients
Step 2: Preheat Oven and Skillet
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Add in your cast iron skillet and allow it to heat up in the oven as the oven preheats.
Step 3: Add Ingredients to Blender
Combine eggs, flour, milk, sugar, vanilla, salt and nutmeg in a blender jar.
Step 4: Blend
Blend until smooth (try to not over blend).
Step 5: Rest
ALLOW BATTER TO REST 25 MINUTES.
Step 6: Butter and Batter
Place butter in the cast iron skillet and allow it to melt. As soon as the butter has melted (watch it so it does not burn) add the batter to the pan.
Step 7: Bake
Return pan to the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes, until the pancake is puffed and golden. Remove pancake from oven. It is inflated very nicely but it will deflate do not worry when it deflates.
Step 8: Add Toppings
Add toppings to the dutch baby and cut into wedges (if you prefer) you can also eat it straight from the cast iron skillet but it will be hot!
Step 9: Enjoy!
Enjoy your Dutch Baby Pancake!
