Print Recipe


  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup milk whole milk or 2%
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter


  • Combine flour, milk, eggs, granulated sugar, vanilla and salt in a blender. Blend for 30 seconds. Make sure that all flour is combined into the batter and scrape sides and re-blend if needed.
  • Allow batter to sit for 20 minutes. This allows the flour to absorb all the liquid.
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Once the oven has been preheated, place cast iron skillet (or oven safe skillet) with unmelted butter into the oven for 2 minutes.
  • If including fruit that needs to be cooked, swirl fruit in butter and place back in oven for 5 minutes. If making a plain dutch baby, skip this step.
  • Remove pan from oven. Swirl butter around pan to coat the entire bottom and the sides.
  • Pour batter into the pan. Swirl pan to ensure batter covers the entire bottom.
  • Place dutch baby back in the oven and set a timer for 15-20 minutes. Dutch baby should be puffed and light brown.
  • Serve with powdered sugar, maple syrup, preserves, or additional fruit on top.



  • This is an ideal recipe for your cast iron. Go from the stove straight to serving all in one dish.
