Mini Dutch Baby Pancakes

I love pancakes but sometimes I am lazy and hate to make them.  I also love popovers.  I found the perfect combination, dutch baby pancakes!  Dutch babies taste like if pancakes and popovers had babies.

Before you start, preheat oven and cast iron or muffin tin to 450 Degrees.  You need some butter. I cut it into cubes since I wanted to make my pancakes in muffin tins.

For this recipe you need eggs, milk. vanilla and flour.

Mix together the eggs, vanilla and milk.

Stir in the flour.

The batter will be thin and can be a little lumpy. That’s ok.

When the pan and oven is nice and hot, take out the pan and quickly put in some butter.  Coat the pan.

Evenly divide the batter into the muffin tins.  I made 12.

Place back into the oven and bake for 18-25 minutes until the pancakes puff up and turn golden brown.

Enjoy the pancakes with maple syrup, fruit, jam or powdered sugar.  

Originally Dutch Baby pancakes are made in the cast iron pan.  I found doing this gave a much crisper texture and puffed up a lot. It was a very different experience.  The process is the same,  place the pan in the oven and preheat to 450 degrees.  Put in the butter and coat the pan.  Pour in the butter and bake for 25 minutes. 

This is a great breakfast when you have guests! 

Or great to share with your little baby!

As you can see he really enjoys them.

Mini Dutch Baby Pancakes

Inspired by:

  • 3 large eggs
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • butter

Preheat oven and cast iron or muffin tin to 450 Degrees.  Yes it is hot.  But you need it.

While the oven heats up, prepare the batter.  It is super simple.  Beat the eggs, milk and vanilla extract together.  Mix in the flour and done!

When the oven is nice and hot, take out the muffin tins (or cast iron) and put in some butter.  Coat the pan and quickly pour in the batter. Place back in the oven and bake for about 18-25 min or until the pancakes are nice and golden brown.  Remove from the oven and serve the pancakes with maple syrup or powdered sugar or fruit.

    Hi I noticed that this has ingredients that you mentioned in posts long ago that you had sensitivities to. I’m curious, as I also have eczema and just bought the Detox diet book and will be starting my detox soon. Have you recovered enough that you can eat normal? What diets/detox would you attribute the majority of your healing to? I ask because when I read your detox posts I could tell that your diet was altered so much that you weren’t able to enjoy what you were limited to and you weren’t able to enjoy what you liked and that is exactly what I’m scared of too. I’d just like to know that there is hope and that one day, I too will be able to eat normal and not have to worry so much about my skin flaring up.

      Hi Seli,

      I would say that it is hard to enjoy the foods that you love when you have sensitivities to them. After a couple years of being pretty strict (maybe a cheat day every two months) I have recovered enough with my eczema that I can have more of these cheat days. During those strict years I avoided all eggs, and white sugar. I ate a mostly homemade everything and avoided going out for a while to recover. It was really hard but it helped. I also started taking sunflower oil and primrose oil as recommended by my naturopath. For me it was the combination of diet and taking those extra oils that helped me a lot. It could be different for you. I would recommend seeing someone if it is really bad. My naturopath helped guide me through this journey. Currently I am still avoiding the foods that I am sensitive to (refined sugar, and eggs) most of the time. I maybe treat myself to something bad once a week. I find that I can have things that contain small amounts of sugar or eggs (eg bread) and not get a reaction. I do still break out when I eat too many of these treats but the flare ups are not too bad. If they are bad then I just cut them out of my diet and my eczema seems to clear up faster. I wouldn’t say that you can eat normal again but you can sure enjoy some of the foods you are sensitive to once in a while.

      In regards to doing a detox, I did find doing one helped to clear up my eczema for a short period. But it would return once I went back to my normal diet. So sorry to say but you do need to make some changes with the way you eat especially if you find out that food is what is causing your eczema.

      Good luck with your journey. I am sure you will be able to find replacements to the foods you love.

  3. What a great idea to make these in a muffin tin!
