Dutch Baby

When breakfast is getting a little boring and repetitive you may want to try this delicious recipe on dutch babies! A dutch baby is similar to a crepe but instead of being made on a stove top it’s made in the oven. Not only is it delicious but it is also is easy to make and a wonder to look at! When it comes out of the oven you’ll be so surprised to see that the whole pastry has puffed up! So much fun and so tasty!

Here is the dutch baby after it has cooled and deflated. When it’s done you can put melted butter and powdered sugar on top, so good!

You may want to make multiple batches if you want the whole family to try it, it disappears very quickly!

Also, you can make the dutch baby into a dessert by adding chocolate or an assortment of berries into the batter.


  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 3 large eggs (best at room temperature 30 minutes)
  • 2/3 cup milk (best at room temperature)
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 stick unsalted butter, cut into pieces


Put skillet on middle rack of oven and preheat oven to 450°F (At least 9 minutes).

Stir together sugar and zest in a small bowl.

Beat eggs with an electric mixer at high speed until pale and frothy, then beat in milk, flour, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt and continue to beat until smooth, about 1 minute more (batter will be thin).

Add butter to hot skillet and melt, swirling to coat. Add batter and immediately return skillet to oven. Bake until puffed and golden-brown, 18 to 25 minutes.

Serve immediately, topped with lemon sugar. Enjoy!
