One of my favorite breakfast treats on a lazy weekend morning is this Dutch Baby Pancake Recipe.
For me, they are best enjoyed topped with fresh lemon juice and powdered sugar. But they are also pretty great with strawberry jam as well.

How do you make Dutch baby pancakes?
Dutch baby pancakes are easy to put together and always receive rave reviews! But you need to work fast since they are best enjoyed straight out of the oven. So make sure everyone is seated before you present this pancake to the table since they will deflate the longer they sit.
To make the batter you will whisk up a simple mixture of flour, milk, eggs, sugar, vanilla extract and melted butter.
The nice thing about this recipe is that you probably have all of the ingredients already on-hand! This makes them a great last-minute breakfast idea that always wows a crowd.
Can you make a Dutch baby without a cast iron skillet?
Yes you can also make a Dutch baby in a metal cake pan that is 9-10″. Just follow the same instructions as if it were a skillet.
Once your batter is made, you will carefully pour it into a hot skillet, sizzling with butter and bake until cooked through and the pancake is puffed up.
TIP: Make sure the edges are really golden brown and crispy before removing the pancake from the oven. This will ensure that the center is cooked through and isn’t too eggy.
Then carefully remove the skillet from the oven, making sure the pancake doesn’t deflate on the way to the table! Then dust with confectioners sugar, cut into wedges and serve!
