Dutch Pancakes

in Breakfast

When I was a little girl I remember going to a slumber party at one of my friends houses and her mom made this type of pancake for breakfast. I was amazed at how good it was and wanted to know the recipe. As usual most of my friends mom’s were all smiles and probably a little taken back that a 10-11 year old would be interested in recipes. But I had a love for food at a young age and I loved breakfast most of all because it was an easy meal to make plus it was sweet.  I don’t remember my friends mom giving me the recipe and if she did it has long since been tossed out over the past 30 years.  I turned to Martha Stewart as a source for the pancake recipe and when I tasted the pancake it took me back to my childhood.  The dutch pancake is light and airy and only slightly sweet, but  you may add any thing on top for a topping. The typical topping is just butter, lemon juice and powdered sugar which is my favorite way to enjoy them. But if you want to take it over the top this lemon sauce from my aunt’s apple cake tastes so good on them you’ll think you died and went to heaven.  Fun thing about this recipe is to see the pancake puff up high, then as you take it out of the oven it falls to it’s resting place and you end up with a ripply browned breakfast cake  that tastes wonderful. Give this recipe a try it is very simple to make and and can be the perfect thing on Christmas morning, enjoy.

Dutch Pancakes

3 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
3 large eggs
3/4 cup whole milk
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/4 cup sugar
1 lemon
powdered sugar for sprinkling on top

Step 1: Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a medium cast-iron or ovenproof nonstick skillet, melt 2 tablespoons butter over medium heat, swirl the butter around the entire pan then set aside.
Step 2: In a blender, combine eggs, milk, flour, salt, vanilla, and 1/4 cup sugar. Blend until foamy, about 1 minute.
Step 3: Pour batter into skillet; bake until pancake is puffed and lightly browned, about 20 minutes.
Step 4:
When pancake is done, put a pat or two of butter on the top then sprinkle lightly with powered sugar. Slice a lemon into wedges and juice over the pancake. Also I made a yummy lemon sauce for a apple cake, I had some left over and used it as a topping for this recipe and it was delicious, you can find the recipe here.
Serves: 2-4

These remind me of “Panakukens” There was a restaurant of that name in MN growing up that we used to go to. They had a bacon flavored one that we all loved. Then we had them in Amsterdam, and they were huge and so light! Great recipe, now I need to try making them at home!

Bacon flavored pancakes sounds pretty yummy, now I should try that in these little babies.

I know what you mean Row, I have been craving them every since I made them. I bet you could make so many varieties of these lovely pancakes, oh the possibilities.

I haven’t had Dutch pancakes in so long. So easy to make and I need to do it more often. Your version is the way I do it and now I’d love a bite;)

I hadn’t had them in a long time either until I made them for this post and it really brought back such sweet memories and a love for them.

Suzanne, not many people can make a pancake like this look pretty no matter how delicious it is but you’ve definitely succeeded! This sounds like a wonderful winter morning treat. I love recipes that instantly transport you back in time with the first tastel

I’ve never tried Dutch pancakes before, although I’m sure it’s just as delicious as regular pancakes or crepes! Wish I had breakfast more often! I would if these show up on my table with a cup of hot tea or cider!

14 Suzanne December 19, 2012 at 1:49 am

Oh Jen you would love them and I’m sure you could find some great new way to make them since you are so creative.

Gorgeous photos! If I poured the lemon sauce over these pancakes I think I’d eat all 4 servings! 😀
