Peach Dutch Baby Pancake

No need to worry about breakfast this weekend.

I’ve got your Saturday morning covered.

Please tell me you’ve had a dutch baby pancake.

Yes?

No?

If not, we’re about to change that.

Dutch baby pancakes are one of my favorite easy weekend breakfasts.

If you want the flavor of pancakes without all the work and standing over the stove or griddle, this is for you.

These have a shorter list of ingredients than regular pancakes AND it’s all baked and puffed up in a cast iron skillet in the oven – easy!

You can definitely make this without the peaches, but why would you?

Heat it, blend it, pour it, bake it, eat it.

Happy weekend!

Peach Dutch Baby Pancake

Serves: 2

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 cup peach slices (frozen, fresh, or canned)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla sugar (or regular sugar plus 1/2 tsp vanilla extract)
  • 1/2 cup whole milk

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  2. Place the butter in a 10- or 11-inch cast iron skillet and put the skillet in the oven until the butter is melted.
  3. Remove the pan from the oven and place the sliced peaches in a single layer in the skillet.
  4. To make the batter, add the eggs, flour, sugar, and milk to a blender and blend until the batter is smooth.
  5. Pour the batter into the skillet over the peaches.
  6. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until pancake is puffed and golden brown.
  7. Remove the pancake from the oven. Cut into wedges and transfer to a plate. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serve with butter and maple syrup, if desired.

    I LOVE dutch baby pancakes! My friend told me what they were for the first time a year or so ago and I attempted it very nervously. Turns out it’s not hard at all! Maybe a good holiday weekend breakfast… hmmm…

    I LOVE Dutch babies for 2 reasons ~ they’re so simple + taste amazing and I was a Dutch baby born in holland! They’ll always hold a place in my heart eventhough I didn’t eat 1 until I was in the US.

    Never seen a peach variety before, bet it’s amazing!

    What a fabulous Idea! I haven’t had one of these since I was over in the Netherlands and definitely need to recreate it here! I’m not a fan of peaches so I’ll make my version without but it looks like a delicious breakfast!

    That looks gorgeous! That style of pancake is still so new to me. I had one a month or so ago at a pot luck with apples that was fantastic and have been meaning to try my hand ever since.

    Brandi – this is GORGEOUS! Suddenly, the toast & eggs w/ nooch + salsa aren’t satisfying me as much as I would like.

    Happy weekend my dear friend! Go get that bathroom in shape :)
