Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes


  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup AP flour
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla optional
  • pinch cinnamon or nutmeg
  • maple syrup, powdered sugar, fresh fruit optional, as garnish


  1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit or 200FAN.

  2. While the oven preheats, prepare your batter by blending or hand-mixing all of the ingredients aside from the butter. Let the mixture sit while the oven preheats to allow the batter time to thicken slightly.

  3. When the oven is preheated, add the butter to an oven-safe skillet, put the skillet in the oven and allow the butter to melt.

  4. Once the butter has melted, remove the skillet from the oven and pour the batter into the skillet. Don't stir it, just pop the skillet right back into the oven and cook for 15-20 minutes, until the pancake is puffed and golden. Once it has deep golden color on the edges, it's ready.

  5. Serve the Dutch Baby piping hot with whatever garnish you like! I prefer maple syrup and fresh fruit, but powdered sugar is traditional.
