Dutch baby (German pancake)

Dutch baby (German pancake)

This Dutch baby (also known as a German pancake) is the best I’ve ever had! It has a light custard base, fluffy sides and edges, and a rich buttery flavor. There are so many ways to top your Dutch baby, but today I’m sharing our favorite way — with plenty of fresh berries, a sprinkle of powdered sugar, and an easy buttermilk syrup.

Dutch babies were introduced in the 1900s in a family-owned restaurant owned by Victor Manca. The name “Dutch baby” was coined by the owner’s daughter.

Dutch baby pancakes are basically a hybrid of a pancake, a crepe, and a popover — all in one giant pan. They’re also often made in a skillet, and today I’ll share how to make them either way. Frequently German pancakes are made in a cast iron skillet. I’d say the skillet typically serves 2 people, so it’s never enough for our family, and that’s why I’m sharing a version made in a 9 x 13 pan. That said, I have tested it both ways — in a skillet or pan. The skillet you use doesn’t have to be cast iron; you can use any oven-safe pan (or baking dish) that is approximately 9 by 12 inches. You can even make a dutch baby in a pie pan!
