DUTCH BABY PANCAKE

I always try to fix breakfast that doesn't take much time. When my 18 months old is starving, he doesn't look so cute anymore 😄. I love making this pancake because it's quick, easy and delicious. I have tried with many kind of fruit, such as apple, banana, pear and peach, either one is good. I usually serve the pancake with maple syrup, but you can always serve with whipped cream or dusting with powdered sugar.

Ingredients


 Pancake Batter : 

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Filling :

  • 2 apples, peeled, pitted and chopped/sliced
  • 2-1/2 tbs butter
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar

Steps

  1. First, make the filling.
  2. Melt the butter over medium heat, add the peaches, cinnamon and salt. Cook about 6-7 minutes. Add brown sugar and cook another 3-4 minutes.
    Beat eggs, milk and vanilla extract with a hand whisker just until well blended. Sift the flour and salt. Gradually add the wet mixture onto the flour. Mix well until just combined. Don't overmix the batter, that's why you must sift the dry ingredients before adding them to the wet ingredients so you would be able to mix properly throughout the batter.
  3. Grease with butter a 9 inch or 10 inch round/square pan (use a shallow pan, not more than 2 inches deep). Pour the filling into the pan (add butter cubes over the filling if you like) then pour the batter over it. Place the pan in a COLD OVEN. Bake at 450°F. Do not open the oven door while cooking the pancake. It will puff up and become crisp around the edges.
  4. Bake for 15 to 17 minutes until the pancake is puffed up and slightly browned.
  5. Remove the pan from the oven and serve immediately.
