I also love that it all cooks at the same time and I don’t have to stand over the stove cooking multiple batches of pancakes. Sometimes lazy breakfasts are the best breakfasts.

Quite a few years ago, I posted a SAVORY dutch baby and I highly suggest that you give that one a try as well! You can get that recipe HERE!

BUT today: we’re talking about this sweet and berry filled dutch baby that I can’t wait for you to try!

One of the things that I love most about it is how SUPER simple it is to make. Lets quickly go over it.

What is a Dutch baby:

A Dutch Baby (which is Dutch at all) is a pancake that’s cooked in a piping hot skillet placed in the oven. Usually it involves melting butter in a cast iron skillet and getting the pan nice and hot BEFORE pouring in the pancake batter.

It’s similar to a Yorkshire pudding, if you’re familiar with those!

The end result is pretty similar to a pancake but because of the multiple eggs, the dutch baby ends up a little denser (but still puffed up and fluffy at the same time!).

How to make a Dutch Baby Pancake:

Typically when making a dutch baby, you would place the cast iron skillet into the oven while it preheats so that it’s super hot when you pour the batter in. HOWEVER, for this recipe, we’re going to heat the skillet on the stovetop so that we can lightly saute the fruit before adding in the batter.

Melt the butter in the skillet and add in the berries. Cook for a few minutes.

Meanwhile you’ll blend all of the dutch baby ingredients in a blender or food process and then pour the batter into the hot skillet. Transfer it immediately to the hot oven and bake.

THAT’S IT! So super easy!
