Kitchen Tips

If you get in the practice of gathering all of your ingredients and tools first, it will make recipes go quicker. I like to go ahead and make some dishwater in the sink for quick clean up too.

Leave the butter, milk and eggs out at least 20 minutes to come to room temperature for this recipe. Failing to do so will like make your recipe fail.

Do not use margarine for this recipe because it contains water.

Directions for making this Dutch Baby Pancake recipe

Preheat the iron-skillet

Add the butter to your iron skillet and place the skillet into the hot oven. Let it heat until the butter is melted and remove from oven. Swirl the melted butter only slightly to cover the bottom of the pan.

pouring the batter

Pour the batter into the center of the hot skillet onto the melted butter. The batter will push the melted butter onto the sides of the skillet.

Bake

Place the pan in the oven and let it bake for about 20 minutes. Then turn the oven off and let it remain in the oven about 5 more minutes. Because oven temperatures vary, you can begin checking on your Dutch Baby at about 16 minutes. The edges will be puffed up and golden brown when done.
