This big pancake has its roots in German cooking, based on the pfannkuchen, although it was developed in the USA. It is like a big popover with a flavor similar to crepes, and it usually served with lemon wedges, butter, and powdered sugar.
It may seem like it is difficult to make, but really, it is not. Most of the effort is in the waiting for it to bake.

Dutch Baby Pancake

  • 3 large organic eggs (at room temperature)
  • 2/3 cup organic whole milk (at room temperature)
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 4 tsbp. unsalted butter
  • Serve with: butter, lemon wedges, and powdered sugar


  1. Preheat a 10-inch cast iron skillet on the center rack of the oven at 450°F.
  2. Beat eggs until frothy, then stir in milk, flour and salt, whisking until it becomes a smooth, thin batter. You can use an electric mixer, blender or whisk by hand; whatever works for you.
  3. Drop butter into the preheated skillet and swirl it, covering bottom and sides.
  4. Pour in the batter and place in hot oven; bake until puffed and golden, 18-25 minutes.
  5. Serve with extra butter, powdered sugar, and lemon wedges.

  1. Beautiful! Love Dutch Babies. It’s amazing how high the sides are here. Can’t wait to try your recipe.

  2. This is the best recipe for Pannakoeken! Tried a few out there and is the best one. It is not too thick. It has just the right balance for thickness and texture. I’ve made it several times and most recently for the in-laws. They love it so much and can’t believe how easy it is that they had made it for other guests. Thank you so much for sharing.

  3. Will this recipe still work with regular eggss and milk. i don’t eat anything that organic.
