Easier Than You Think Dutch Baby Oven Pancake Recipe

 Whenever we make pancakes for our kids, it is always a long process and often I have kids begging for more when others have not even had their first ones. When we visit our family in Chicago we most always head to the Pancake House and my brother orders a Dutch Baby. It comes out all puffy and looks so delicious. This made me think about how easy it would be to serve a large group pancakes with only one big oven pancake. This way everyone can be served at the same time and the cook, me, can sit down and eat with the others. The Dutch Baby Pancake also makes an amazing presentation at the Breakfast table.

If you have ever seen a dutch baby, it looks pretty intimidating but this dutch baby recipe is pretty fool proof. I was thrilled it worked on the first try and instead of doubling the recipe and making it in a 12×9 pan, I doubled the recipe and make it 2 different skillets. I just wanted to see present the dutch baby recipe at its best.

The recipe recommended a cast iron pan, but if you have a high end brand pan that can be used in a hot oven, then you are all set. I found my non-stick pan to rise a little better but not sure if it was the pan or just where it sat in the oven. dutch baby recipe 1

The oven baked pancake batter is pretty simple, just be sure to have the eggs at room temp. I placed mine in some warm water for a few minutes.

Pour your batter into your butter filled pan, cook a minute then let the oven to the rest.

I had some frozen berry mix, so I defrosted it and added a little sugar to sweeten it up. We used this for our filling and the kids did not ask for maple syrup as the batter is a bit sweet.

Each oven baked pancake serves at least 2 large servings, and 4 smaller servings if you have eggs and other sides.

This was a super fun breakfast recipe and will be impressing our kids overnight guests for now on. If you have never had a dutch baby this is your chance to impress your breakfast guests.
