I just found out about Dutch/oven pancakes!  I can't believe I'd never heard of them!  I hear they're similar to Yorkshire pudding...but better!  They sort of taste like a cream puff....yummmmmm... ..


Ingredients:

3 eggs
2 tbsp melted butter + 1 tbsp for pan
1 tbsp granulated sugar
1/2 cup millk
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp lemon extract
pinch of salt

It's best to use a seasoned cast iron skillet but a cake pan or any 8-10 inch pan will work...as long as it's oven safe up for 425 degrees!

Start by preheating the oven AND the pan, greased with a little oil, to 425 degrees.  While those are heating, beat eggs until light and frothy, add milk, sugar, extract, salt and 2 tbsp butter.  Mix until combined.  Fold in flour.  The mixture will be lumpy.

When the pan is hot, remove it from the oven, melt the remaining 1 tbsp butter in it, swirling to coat the entire bottom.  Then, add batter to pan and bake for about 20 minutes or until golden and puffy.




I have this posted on my blog.  Go there for a pretty version  Smiley

ummmm.....ok....so I saw your post,
my husband and I just finished dinner and he asked me "do we have anything sweet?"
I say "no, but somebody put up a post about a dutch pancake, it looks delicious."
"what's a dutch pancake?"
"something that looks delicious that I have the ingredients for and I can make in 20 minutes."

pause from husband......."how much do you love me?"

me "enough to make you a dutch pancake."

I substituted vanilla for the lemon extract and served it with strawberry jam that I warmed up....
ohhh soooo gooood, thank you

I'm so glad you posted this! I'm home sick right now and craving something warm, sweet and comforting. I was kinda bummed when I realized my DH had eaten the last cupcake, then I came across your post! It looks sooo good! I just might have to drag myself out of bed to make one now! Bet it goes great with a cup of hot cocoa or tea!

Oh I love these!  My mom used to make them as a special treat with lots of fresh fruit and some powdered sugar.  I've never been able to get it quite the same...  Perhaps I should try this??  Smiley Thanks!

Cool!  I'm so glad you all like it!  You can substitute lemon juice for the extract but since juice isn't as strong, add a little zest (1/4 tsp or less).  You can also substitute vanilla, almond or any other extract or just leave it out.  The lemon extract doesn't really give the pancake a lemon flavor.  It sort of *brightens* the flavor.  Yummm....

We have these as special breakfast and my boyfriend refers to it as "breakfast cake".

We usually sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on top before baking which gives an awesome crispy sweet cinnamon layer to the top! Served with fresh berries these are to die for!

I was helping my daughter earlier today use her easy bake oven for the first time and I kept thinking that I wanted something life size sweet to make(does that make sense?). I gave up on that since I'm super lazy to go to the store but now that I saw this and have all the ingredients, I'm totally making it! Thanks!!!

I made it the other night (that you posted) with almond extract.  Oh so good!  I had a 1/4 piece and my husband ate the entire rest of it!  Smiley  Big hit!  My mom made these HUGE for brunches. 

Thanks!  Yum.

I made one for breakfast this morning for my husband. It was very good! Thanks for the recipe.

I have a few questions. I did bake it in a seasoned cast iron skillet and used vanilla extract instead of lemon. My crust edges didn't curl up nearly as much as yours, and the top of the slices were pretty crunchy. Come to think of it... I think mine turned out darker than yours. Did I overcook it? I left it in for 20 minutes.

Looks great, might try it one day..... unfortunately I'm on a diet right now.  Undecided

P.S. Am I the only dutch person who has never ever even heard of such a treat? Most people in Holland don't even have an oven anymore.......... (which seeing this recipe seems to be a big big loss  Grin )

kcartwright856- To get it to really curl up, you might try adding some oil in the pan with the butter.  It's also a good idea to use room temperature ingredients (even though I didn't).  Make sure the pan is preheated and as soon as you pour in the batter, it will start to cook.  Since all ovens are a little different, 20 minutes may be too long.  If you overcooked it, there's a possibility that it rose and then sake, making your edges lower.  Try taking it out at 18 minutes or when the edges are a medium golden brown.  I hope that helps.  Good luck!

abbytail- People is Holland don't have ovens???  How do they live?   Huh

I did heat the skillet fully in the oven, but I will definitely oil it in addition to the butter next time, as well as bring the ingredients to room temperature.

Perhaps the oven did run a bit hot, so I'll watch it more closely. Thank you!

Yum yum yum! It looks delicious.

But...what if I don't have a skillet to cook it in?? I only have a cheap set of pans right now which cannot be used in the oven.

You can find some really cheap cast iron pans at Walmart, Target and (my favorite) World Market.  Cast iron really helps the pancake puff and bake nicely but it isn't necessary.  You can use just about any pan in any shape as long as it's about 8-9 inches.  You could probably even use a Bundt/tube pan.  Just make sure you preheat the oven with the pan in it, so the pan gets hot and add butter right before you add the batter.  It should come out fine.

Oh, and one more tip, if your pans are really thin and flimsy, you might want to put a baking sheet (cookie pan) right under (touching) the pan you're cooking the pancake in.  It will help prevent the bottom from burning.

Haha, i'm dutch and I've never heard of this recipe before but it sure looks good!
We do have something that's called a 'Pannekoek' (which is pancake when you translate it) but that's more of a combination of a french crpe and an american pancake
And we do have ovens, at least everyone I know have one Wink

I remember seeing a Dutch Baby on Good Eats a while back--it sounded fantastic, but at the time, I didn't have a cast iron skillet.  Fortunately for me, I saw your post right after I got one!

Here's my first one, ever so slightly overdone, but delicious nonetheless.  For my next one, I'm going to try the cinnamon sugar top that Lieblings mentioned, it sounds so good!
