Dutch Baby German Pancake

Dutch Baby (German Pancake)

Dutch Baby Recipe

This recipe is so easy to make. Simpler, even, than making fried eggs or an omelet. Place the ingredients in the blender and pour into the pan with melted butter and cook. That’s about it. Adapted from the recipe on NewYorkTimes.com.


3 large eggs
1/2 cup (60 grams) all purpose flour
1/2 cup whole milk
1 Tbl sugar
Pinch of freshly ground nutmeg
4 Tbl (1/2 stick) salted butter


  1. Preheat oven to 425° F.
  2. Combine eggs and milk in a blender.
  3. In a small bowl, combine flour, sugar and nutmeg. Stir.
  4. Cover blender and turn on. As blender is running, slowly add contents of bowl, until thoroughly combined.
  5. Place butter in a 10″ cast iron skillet and place in the oven.
  6. As soon as butter is melted, open the oven, take out the pan, and add batter.
  7. Return pan to oven immediately and bake for 20 minutes.
  8. Lower oven temperature to 300° F and bake five minutes more.
  9. Remove from oven.
  10. Serve with syrup or preserves.

Peel, core and very thinly slice (1/4 inch or less) one medium baking apple. (Granny Smith works great.) Toss with 2 Tbl brown sugar. After butter is melted and immediately before adding batter, carefully lay flat the apple slices on top of the butter. Pour batter on top and continue cooking as instructed.
