A lovely baked pancake that can be quickly put together without fuss. While this recipe calls for berries, pitted fruits -- peaches, plums, nectarines -- can be used with or instead of berries. If you enjoy tangy flavors, try substituting plain yogurt or buttermilk for half the milk.

Ingredients Nutrition

  6. Spoon the berries onto the Dutch baby and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
  7. Serve hot.

I didn't have a round cast iron skillet, so I used a square baking pan and that worked fine. This puffed up and looked really nice, but the egg flavor was much too strong, I think, and it kind of drowned out the other flavors. The whole thing was kind of bland, but I think this could be great if you just cut out some of the egg yolks and increased the sugar a bit. Anyways, I still want to thanks you for a very pretty recipe!! Sorry mine didn't work out.

This puffed up high and thick. It was nice and eggy the way I like them. I made this with strawberries and blueberries. Very good.

My son and I had this for lunch. We both found that this tasted a bit "eggy". It wasn't unpleasant. It just wasn't what we were expecting. After I took it out of the oven, it all went flat. Even the sides! I didn't think I could mess up a pancake, but I guess I can. I will try this again when the house is warm this winter. Maybe the shock from the oven to my cold apartment was too much. Thanks for posting, Toni!
