A Dutch Baby Pancake, sometimes called a German pancake, is an oven baked pancake that is delicious and so simple to make. It's made with ingredients that you always have on hand in your pantry and refrigerator. You put the thin batter into a skillet and bake in the oven until it browns and puffs up. You can serve it with your usual pancake topping, syrup, or make it a little more fancy with powdered sugar, berries, or better yet, all three of them like we did this morning. Try this for your next weekend brunch!
1/2 cup sifted all-purpose flour
3 eggs, beaten
1/2 tsp. vanilla
3 T. melted butter
1/4 tsp. salt
Berries, Syrup, Powdered sugar, for serving
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9-inch (I used a 10 inch which worked fine) oven safe skillet with butter or a baking spray and set aside.
2. Gradually add the flour to the beaten eggs with a whisk. Whisk in milk, vanilla extract, melted butter, and salt. Pour batter into the prepared skillet.
3. Bake at 350°F for 25 minutes or until golden brown. It will puff up while baking, but become flat again when you remove it from the oven. Cut into wedges and serve warm with berries, syrup, and/or powdered sugar.
