Deliciously Easy Dutch Babies

The last ingredient makes the whole dish!

We never turn down pancakes, whether they’re for breakfast, brunch, or dinner. With this quick and simple Dutch baby recipe, we’re enjoying sweet and delicious pancake flavor any time of day. It’s easy enough to whip up for dinner-breakfasts, and it makes an all-star brunch choice for busy weekends. We love Dutch babies because the recipe is super adaptable, and fruit is one of our favorite ways to add great flavor and color.

Serve it with a sweet-tart lemon sugar topping, sprinkle a handful of apples or blueberries on top, or prepare it as-is with simple (but yummy) powdered sugar. It’s always love at first bite with these Dutch babies, regardless of when or how we serve them!
