What are Dutch Baby Pancakes
Dutch baby pancakes are a cross between a pancake and a crepe. They get puffy in the oven while baking and then deflate when removed from the oven. They are typically served with freshly squeezed lemon, butter, and powdered sugar but it is also common to add fruit, homemade apple butter, jam, jelly or maple syrup. Dutch Babies are great for being served as a breakfast or brunch food.

You can also dip slices in real maple syrup.

We also like to fill them with fruit right out of the oven and put a sprinkle of powdered sugar.
