Today is pancake day at our household! So we decided to make the Dutch Baby version for breakfast. We’ve been seeing it a lot on Instagram lately, that we just had to try out the recipe. The version that we’re sharing is the version we adjusted based on our preferences.
What is Dutch Baby Pancake?
When we first saw the recipe, we have to admit that we thought of it as a non-savoury version of the Yorkshire Pudding. Made with eggs, flour, milk and sugar, Dutch Baby Pancakes are baked in a hot cast iron pan.
Our version of the Dutch Baby Pancake
Ours are the mini version. We couldn’t fit our pan in the oven, so we used a smaller cast iron baking dish to bake our pancakes. We also replaced the sugar with molasses and added vanilla extract and cinnamon powder. The pancakes were served hot with sliced bananas and honey on top.
- 2 eggs
- 70g flour
- 120ml milk
- 1tsp molasses
- Pinch of salt
- Few drops of vanilla extract
- 1tsp cinnamon powder (Cinnamon powder is available on our Shopee store)
- Butter for the pan
- Whisk eggs, flour, milk, sugar, salt, vanilla extract & cinnamon powder together.
- Heat up some butter in the pan.
- Pour the batter in the pan.
- Bake in a preheated oven at 220°C for 15 to 20 mins.
- Serve hot with fruits, honey, powdered sugar etc.
It’s fun to see the batter puffing up in the oven. Taste-wise, it’s sweet but not too sweet. The crusty edges and custardy middle are to die for.
What’s our overall verdict?
Dutch Baby Pancakes are very much unlike the regular pancakes you make on the stove. It’s on a league of its’ own!
