Savory Dutch Baby

Savory Dutch Baby

Is there any time of day when a pancake isn’t welcome at the table? What about a Savory Dutch Baby that mixes up in seconds? I didn’t think so.

4 Servings
Active Time: 20 min
Total Time: 50 min

3 large eggs, room temperature
¾ cup whole milk, room temperature
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, slightly cooled, divided
½ cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons cornstarch
½ teaspoon kosher salt
½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  • Place a medium ovenproof skillet, preferably cast iron, in the center of the oven and preheat oven to 450°.
  • Let skillet heat at least 25 minutes total (prepare your toppings while you wait).
  • Blend eggs in a blender on high speed until very frothy, about 1 minute.
  • With motor running, gradually stream in milk, then 2 Tbsp. butter; blend another 30 seconds.
  • Add flour, cornstarch, salt, and pepper and blend just to combine. (This batter doubles well if you want to scale up.)
  • Carefully remove the skillet from the oven and swirl the remaining 1 Tbsp. butter in the skillet to coat.
  • Immediately pour batter into skillet (butter will brown quickly, so have batter at the ready to prevent burning).
  • Bake pancake until puffed and brown around edges, 20–25 minutes. It will begin to deflate as soon as it comes out. Top as desired.

Topping Ideas

Sautéed kale, crispy bacon, and aged cheddar
