Dutch Pancake

Welcome to Week 7 of Fun with Food Friday

Check The Not-So-Secret Confessions of a First Time Mom for another recipe review this week!
Today I’m sharing another old favorite of mine, (also a favorite of friend and reader Amanda.)
I have some great recipes waiting in the wings from you guys, including Mexican Black Bean Burgers and Creamy Turnip soup, and when I do my big monthly shopping trip next week, I’ll be picking up the ingredients I need for those!
This is a quick and easy breakfast that’s more nutritious than a bowl of Chocolate Frosted Sugar Bombs for hurried mornings!
We have started using this almost every Sunday morning. John usually cooks our breakfast on Sunday so that I can focus on getting the meal for our church’s weekly potluck made and then getting me and the girls ready to go. It’s quick and easy to throw together, and Katie likes it, so it doesn’t require the time-consuming battle to get her to eat it while we’re rushing around. 
Getting her to sit still and behave well in church goes much better if she’s eaten a good breakfast, so this has been a life-saver!
Dutch Pancake
(I’ve also heard this called a Dutch Baby, Swedish Pancake, and German Pancake. Who knows what it really started as?!)

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup flour (I usually use 1/2 whole wheat)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 Tb. butter

Note: You can easily do two or more of these at a time in your oven, (as many as will fit!) and it makes a great breakfast for over-night company!

1.) Place the 2 Tb of butter into a 9 x 13 pan, turn the oven on to 425 degrees, and put the pan into the oven to heat and melt butter.

2.) While the oven is preheating and the butter melting, in a mixing bowl or blender, combine remaining ingredients. It should be smooth, but don’t over-mix.

3.) When the oven is preheated and the butter completely melted, pour the batter straight into the hot pan.


4.) Bake for 20 minutes, or until it puffs and is getting golden brown:
The pancake will start to deflate after you take it out of the oven, so get it to the table as soon as possible for more impressive presentation. ;-)

5.) Add your favorite toppings: butter, cinnamon & sugar, powdered sugar, honey, syrup, jam, whipping cream, berries, you-name-it!

Katie’s favorite topping is honey!


We’ll be doing this again next Friday, and we need your recipes!

Be sure to keep your oven light on and occasionally call your little people over to oo and awe over its amazing growth as it cooks! (Also motivation to keep your oven window clean. Along with the sweet toppings always serve it with lots of applause. The kids are always impressed with these!

I make this and serve it with stewed apples over top. I just slice apples and put them in the microwave with a little butter, cinnimon and brown sugar. Cover and cook 8-10 minutes. I try to make the apples the night before and refrigerate, so they just need heated up in the morning. So yummy!

This kind of reminds me of what they make here in Holland, MI for Tulip Time. Great pix- I'm just trying to figure out how to print it! :D

Tabitha April 29, 2011 at 9:01 pm

We have this every couple months, we LOVE it!!


K April 29, 2011 at 9:37 pm

Your pancake scares me. It looks like it's trying to run away!

It also looks delicious! I'll have to try this. Miss *a* loves pancakes and I'd love to be able to make some that don't require me standing over the oven while shouting to the back of the house "I SAID GET YOUR SHOES ON!" fifty times.

I have a newish (starting it's second month) monthly recipe linky/contest that's opening Sunday, and know how hard it is to get submissions. IF you'd like, e-mail me, and we'll see if we can cross promote or something?



Skye April 29, 2011 at 11:08 pm

does it taste good?


amazey April 30, 2011 at 6:05 am

you're awesome!



shannon May 7, 2011 at 1:28 pm

I have never seen pancakes made that way. I would love to try making them.Looks so simple :)


Michele August 2, 2011 at 5:37 am

What a great idea. This would definitely be easier than making individual pancakes for overnight guests. Thanks for sharing.



Agata January 5, 2012 at 10:24 pm

I would like to try this recipe cause it looks yummy and so easy. The only thing that stops me is, well, I have had already broken one glass dish in the oven before by pouring hot water into it (I know, very stupid of me). But I see that you are using glass dish and heating it up pretty high. How does it work? Do you heat it for a long time or just a little? Please let me know. I really want to try this. Thanks!


Amanda Larson January 18, 2012 at 11:41 am

That has got to be the coolest thing I have ever seen! Adding this to the list of breakfasts to make when we have company :)
