Dutch Baby Oven Pancakes

What a way to wake up – to the delicious smell of a comfort-food breakfast, Dutch Baby Oven Pancakes! This German pancake is a sweet breakfast dish similar to Yorkshire pudding derived from the German Apfelpfannkuchen. This breakfast works for me.

It’s quick, easy and made from things almost everyone has on hand. Makes a great family breakfast tradition. I’ve made it three times this week.



6 eggs
1 cup milk
1 cup flour
3/4 t. salt
3 T. sugar
2 T. Cinnamon
1 1/2 t. vanilla

Melt 1/3 cup butter in oven in a 9×13 pan; should be sizzling when you take it out. (If you use two small pans melt 2.5 Tablespoons of butter in each pan.)

Mix other ingredients in a blender or mixing bowl until very frothy. Pour batter into pan with melted butter. Bake at 400 F for 20-25 minutes.

Serve with any of these toppings: pancake syrup, fresh berries, applesauce, powdered sugar or lemon and orange slices. If fresh fruit isn’t available use thawed frozen peaches, raspberries, blueberries, etc.


  • This is not a heart-healthy breakfast. To compensate, eat a small slice of pancake with a full cup of semi-thawed frozen berries. Yum!

  • The pancakes look strange after baking. They puff and curl up near the sides of the pan. This is normal.

  • If you have boys, call these Dutch Oven Pancakes and omit the word baby.

    Thanks for the recipe! I’m huge into traditions and creating them for my family. We are of German heritage and especially around the holidays I’m hoping to incorporate foods from the various cultures of our ancestors. This looks great!

  3. Yum! This looks so good! I have a similar recipe that I learned in HomeEc way back in middle school. I’ve been making it every since. I love it with a little bit of melted butter, lemon juice, and powdered sugar.

    I’m definitely going to have to try yours because of the cinnamon and sugar (mine doesn’t have that). Thanks!

    Robin, I tried this recipe this morning and it was a big hit. I had some leftover strawberries in syrup and we poured them over the pancake – yum! Thanks for the idea.

  6. That sounds so good! Looks easy enough for me to even cook (my husband does a lot of the cooking around here).

  7. Hi Robin,
    This sounds fantastic! 🙂

    Here’s my Mom’s overnight recipe for French Toast – also not heart healthy, but excellent to bring or serve at a brunch or as a treat when you don’t want to prep in the morning!

    French Toast

    9 Eggs
    3 ¼ Half and Half
    2/3 C Sugar
    2 Tsp Vanilla
    Sweet French Bread ( 2 Challah, no crust)

    Blend the above and soak bread overnight.

    Bake at 375 – 40-50 minutes.
