A Dutch baby pancake, sometimes called a German pancake, a Bismarck, or a Dutch puff, is a sweet popover that is normally served for breakfast. wikipedia 

This recipe is healthy & easy. minimal ingredients, minimal dishes. a good way to benefit from eggs when you’re not an egg person. twenty minutes equals one dramatic puff. 


Ingredients Needed:

3 large eggs, at room temperature

2/3 cup whole milk, at room temperature

2/3 cup flour

1 tsp. cinnamon

salt, just a dash

4 Tbs. unsalted butter

1 Tbs. sugar and 1 tsp. cinnamon, mixed

1 cup fresh berries. any berry combo

Preheat oven to 425. Beat eggs with a mixer on medium until pale and frothy, about 3 minutes. Beat in the milk, flour, cinnamon, and a dash of salt. Beat until thoroughly combined. 

In a 10-inch oven safe skillet, melt butter. Remove from heat and pour the batter (thin consistency) into the pan. (right on top of the melted butter) Place skillet in the oven & bake for about 20 minutes. (yield 1 golden-brown puff)

Remove from oven. Top with sugar/cinnamon mixture and berries. Eat immediately. 


although the pics show a whole puff with berries, i usually remove the puff from the pan and slice before I top with the sugar/cinnamon & berries. just did it this way for presentation. (serves 2-4)

Ingredients for Puffed Apple Pancake:

4 Tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter

1 medium apple, sliced. (I like granny smith)

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1 Tablespoon sugar

2 eggs, room temperature

1/2 cup milk

1/2 cup flour

dash salt

Confectioner’s sugar for dusting

Preheat oven to 400. Butter a 10-inch oven-proof braiser.

In another fry pan over medium heat, melt 2 tablespoons of butter. Add the apple, cinnamon, and sugar. Saute, stirring occassionally, until the apple begins to soften and brown, about 5 minutes. Set aside.

In a bowl, with a whisk or fork, beat the eggs.

Add the milk and whisk until blended. Sift the flour and salt into the egg mixture and whisk until just blended. Melt the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter in a small saucepan or in the microwave; add the melted butter to the flour-egg mixture and whisk until smooth.

Pour the batter into the buttered oven-proof pan and arrange the apple slices evenly on top. Bake until the pancake is browned and puffed up, about 25 minutes. Dust with confectioner’s sugar and serve immediately. LOVE!
