Dutch Baby

I saw this recipe on Cook's Country, which is part of America's Test Kitchen, and wanted to try it.  It's a fairly easy recipe & while the dutch baby was baking, I fixed the rest of our breakfast.  The recipe doesn't have any sugar in it, therefore, it really needs some powdered sugar, sweetened strawberries or syrup.  Here's the recipe:

                                                                                          It looks like a giant popover !!

2 T. vegetable oil (I really didn't need that much)
1 c. flour
1/4 c. cornstarch
2 t. zest & 2 T. juice from 1 lemon
1 t. salt
3 large eggs
1 1/4 c. skim milk
1 T. unsalted butter, melted & cooled
1 t. vanilla
3 T. confectioners' sugar

Adjust oven rack to middle position & heat oven to 450 degrees.  Brush surface & sides of large skillet with oil.  (I used a 10" stainless steel skillet).  Place skillet on oven rack & heat until oil is shimmering, about 10 minutes.

Combine flour, cornstarch, lemon zest & salt in large bowl.  Whisk eggs in another bowl until frothy & light, about 1 minute.  Whisk milk, butter & vanilla into eggs until incorporated. Whisk one-third of milk mixture into flour mixture until no lumps remain then slowly whisk in remaining milk mixture until smooth.

Carefully pour batter into heated skillet & bake until edges of Dutch Baby are deep, golden brown & crisp, about 20 minutes.  Remove to wire rack & sprinkle the Dutch Baby with the lemon juice & confectioners'  sugar.  Cut into wedges to serve.  For an added treat, serve with an array of berries & sweetened whipped cream. 

NOTE:  The Dutch Baby will deflate after it sits.  It's supposed to!

I am sharing this with Pink Saturday. 

Serves 4                                           M-m-m, the finished product!


  1. Kitty!! Holy yumminess! This treat would not "deflate" me! HA!

  2. I am so excited to see this recipe! The Original Pancake House has this and they squeeze fresh lemon over it and then dust it with powdered sugar, I think. Delish! Thanks for visiting my blog today!

  3. Yum! I used to make something similar to this all the time, but it's been years. Thank you for inspiring me to make it once more! I think I'll use your recipe this time, though. It looks amazing.

  4. Hi Kitty, this looks so delicious and it is quite simple to make. In fact it is giving my hunger pangs. HA!

    Happy PS,

  5. I LOVE Dutch Babies...I sprinkle mine with a dash of cinnamon and serve with cranberries simmered in orange juice and a side of maple syrup. I am hungry! LOVE the photo of the Dutch baby baking~

  6. Kitty, that looks delicious! You're making me hungry!

  7. This looks delicious. I may have to try this one weekend, if I ever get a saturday morning! :)

  8. I love Dutch Babies too AND, like Vicki, also love The Original Pancake House! My recipe is a little different, its 1/3 c. butter, melted in pan in oven, 4 eggs, 1 c milk and 1 c flour, blended together. Bake at 425 for 20 min. Your post was a timely reminder for me, and I made one for my husband's birthday breakfast! With lemon and powdered sugar, YUM! Happy PS!
