DELICIOUS DUTCH BABY RECIPE

Hi there! Last weekend our New York dwelling son came to Los Angeles on business and spent the weekend with us here in Lake Arrowhead. During his stay I made a family favorite breakfast which included my delicious Dutch Baby recipe.

I’ve been making Dutch Babies for years but haven’t felt comfortable until now to put the recipe on the blog. That’s because while they are simple and fast to whip up, there are certain techniques that need to be observed in order for them to puff up correctly.

So, I’ve been perfecting this recipe and the method behind the preparation for sometime now and finally feel like I’m expert enough to share the recipe with you.

You see, I have found that every recipe for Dutch Babies I’ve tried doesn’t tell you the secrets to success, which is how to get your Dutch Baby to rise. Because unless you observe certain techniques, the Dutch Baby does not puff up, and instead, becomes a flat, rubbery mess.

So, what is the secret to Delicious Dutch Baby recipe success?

  • The pan it’s cooked in needs to be the same temperature as the oven when you pour the batter into the pan!

The way you achieve this is by placing the 10″ skillet into the cold oven. It then gets heated up along with the oven during the preheating process. It is only when the oven reaches 475° that the batter is poured into the hot buttered pan. I have found this to be a failsafe method for getting my delicious Dutch Babies to rise, every time, consistently. But nobody tells you that! So I am, because I want you to succeed!

Once your Dutch Babies are in the oven you can prepare the toppings. I love to serve mine with fresh mixed berries, lemon wedges, powdered sugar and warm maple syrup.

I dust my Dutch Babies generously with powdered sugar immediately after pulling them out of the oven. I then allow my breakfast guests to add their toppings of choice. Fresh squeezed lemon juice and additional powdered sugar is a great combo. I add berries and love to have a berry in every bite.

By the way, your Dutch Baby will be at its fullest right out of the oven. It will begin to sink a bit right after it comes out. This is normal so don’t worry.

Although it’s difficult for one person to eat an entire Dutch Baby, I like to serve each person their very own. Plus, leftover Dutch Babies are delicious the following day. My delicious Dutch Baby recipe makes one large Dutch Baby. So, I multiply the recipe by the number of people I’m serving and make one per person. I can fit up to 4 pans in my oven at one time. Dutch Babies are best served fresh out of the oven, but if I need to, I keep them warm in my warming drawer until I’m ready to serve.

    Love these! My Dutch Baby recipe is from Sunset magazine 25 years ago. It did suggest heating the pan in the oven and adding butter first.

  • Hi Nancy, I bet that Sunset recipe is a good one, love Sunset! Glad you learned the secret to a good Dutch Baby too! I suggest waiting until just before pouring the batter into the hot pan to add the butter. Otherwise the butter will burn. Thanks for your comment.

  • I’ve never heard of a Dutch Baby but it looks great. Thanks for sharing your tips…you make everything seem so do-able —even for a novice in the kitchen like myself! Happy weekend, my friend. V.
