Fast and Easy Dutch Baby Pancake

Quick and Easy Dutch Baby Pancake

I love going on vacation, but I really love coming home. Usually I am greeted with smiles, a kiss or two and a wagging tail. And I got all those, until I didn’t. Why? Well, it’s because as soon as I came home I went into mom-mode with Huck. Huck has allergies. Yup. What could a dog be allergic to? Let me list the ways…

Quick and Easy Dutch Baby Pancake

Huck’s allergies presented themselves when he was a puppy with terrible goopy ears that just wouldn’t stay clean. Then his paws were giving him issues. He was always scratching his chin on the carpet and the ears – well, five rounds of different ear meds didn’t help – so I took him to the doggie dermatologist. Yes, those do exist! With a pink shaved belly, pricked with 50 allergens, we found out that Huck is allergic to just about everything. Including himself. Grasses? Five types. Trees, four. Feathers? Oh yeah! (Don’t get me started on a bird dog being allergic to feathers…) and then dust. Dust? You mean the dust that is created in our house due to a 90 pound labrador? Yuparooni! Huck is allergic to himself.

So after having come home to a few kisses, wags of the tail and some butt rubs – for the dog, not Ben – it was time to go into mommy mode and clean the ears that had flared up in the three days I had been gone.

And he has been avoiding me ever since. Saddest doggie mama face, EVAHHH!

This fast and easy Dutch Baby Pancake, makes a perfect pancake to share right out of the skillet with the one you love! And done in 15 minutes, you’ve got a crispy treat to start your day off right!Quick and Easy Dutch Baby Pancake

Someone come and cuddle with me , because my dog sure isn’t!

These Dutch Baby pancakes are incredibly simple to make! My best friend showed me her fail safe rule for perfect Dutch Babies when she visited from Idaho. We used to go to a restaurant in our college town that was known for dutch babies, but I hadn’t ever made them until now! Well, the buck stops here and they are now a staple in our house!

Dutch Baby Pancake:

2 Egg

1/2 cup Flour

1/4 cup Sugar

½ tsp Vanilla

3 Tbsp Butter

Fruit Topping:

½ cup Strawberries, sliced

½ cup Orange, sliced

1 Tbsp Sugar



Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Heat an oven proof skillet on the stove at a medium heat and melt the butter in the skillet, swirling it to coat the bottom and sides of the pan. The butter should simmer in the pan slightly.

In a bowl, whisk together all of the Dutch Baby ingredients until smooth. Pour the batter into the heated skillet and then place into the oven to bake. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the edges are golden brown. Remove from oven.

For Fruit Topping:

While the dutch baby is baking, toss the strawberries, oranges and sugar together in a bowl. Serve over warm dutch baby.

    My Lab has allergies too, I believe. He’s constantly having ear infections, poor guy.

    Okay, this would be PERFECT with the homemade strawberry jam I just made. In fact, I should send you a jar for your next Dutch Baby. Speaking of babies, please give The Huckster ear scratches for me. Poor kid.

    That sounds like my best friend’s dog, her poor puppy is allergic to just about everything under the sun! I feel for your furry baby.

    Love these babies! I’ve yet to make a dutch baby, what am I waiting for???!

    Awwww…that is so sad! You sound like a very good pup momma though. I love dutch babies, especially for feeding a crowd! Adding this one to my brunch repertoire.

    And here I thought I was the only proud owner of a highly allergic dog. I have to clean the ears once a week. Feed him Zyrtec every day. Dab hydrocortizone on his itchy wounds. I feel bad for both of them. A fast and easy Dutch baby sounds and looks perfect.

    Awwww I hope Huck feels better soon!! This Dutch baby is killing me! I’ve still never made one and I need to ASAP. Berries and caramel? Stop it.

    Poor Huck! Allergies are no fun.
    And I’ve never had a dutch baby pancake, if you can believe that?! Guess I’ll have to try one because your photos have got my tummy grumbling!

    This recipe looks easy for real. I have always wanted to try one of these. I am a true pancake hound. Woof! Woof! Plus you can make them one at a time which is great for those of us who live alone.

    First of all poor Huck! I had a dog with serious ear infection problems growing up, my mom was constantly cleaning them. As for the Dutch Baby, it looks amazing! I’ve made them for my husband a couple of times and he devoured the whole thing by himself, glad I have another recipe to try out!
