Dutch Baby Pancake

  • Author: Julie
  • Yield: 5 1x



  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 8 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Place butter in a large cast iron skillet, or 9 by 13 baking dish, and melt for a few minutes in the hot oven. Be careful not to let it burn.
  3. Beat eggs until frothy, then whisk in milk and vanilla. I use my whisk attachment on my Kitchenaid Mixer.
  4. Gradually add flour and salt. Mix until well combined.
  5. Remove skillet with melted butter from the oven and pour dutch baby batter over the butter.
  6. Return to oven for about 15 minutes. The dutch baby will puff up and the edges and top will be golden brown.
  7. Cut and serve immediately with strawberries, powdered sugar, whipped cream, or maple syrup.
