A “dutch baby” is an oven-baked pancake that is very simple to make… your kids can prepare the batter in the blender and then you can help them to bake it in the oven. Serve with a dollop of homemade whipped cream and some maple syrup- and it is a fun delicious treat!
Here’s how to Make a Dutch Baby:
To start, place your pan or skillet (I think mine is an 11″ skillet) in your cold oven, and then preheat to 475 degrees.
Next- you’ll need:3 eggs 3/4 cup of flour 3/4 cup of milk 3/4 teas. of vanilla
Have your child add these items to your blender, and blend on high until frothy… about 30 seconds. Make sure that you scrape down the sides once or twice so that it is all blended nicely.
Once the oven is preheated, add 4 Tablespoons of butter to your skillet…
… and allow a few minutes for your butter to melt and to turn a golden brown.
Then carefully pour your dutch baby batter from your blender into your heated skillet. The melted browned butter will kind of float up on the top of your batter… and that just will enhance the deliciousness!
Bake until your Dutch baby is golden brown and puffy on the sides- about 18-20 minutes.
Allow to cool for 5 minutes, and then add a generous dusting of powdered sugar on top.
Cut into wedges, and serve with a dollop of freshly made whipped cream (1 cup of heavy cream and 1/4 cup of powdered sugar beaten in a mixer until fluffy), and homemade maple syrup.
