This is a new addition to our Sunday morning menu. I just recently learned what a Dutch baby is—a puff pancake with a consistency that is similar to a popover.—and it’s a whole lot easier to make than popovers! A Dutch baby is also known as a German pancake, a Dutch puff, or a Bismarck. You can make it with different types or fruit, make a vanilla Dutch baby, or dust it with confectioner’s’ (powdered) sugar.

A Dutch baby is really quick and easy to makeand did I mention how delicious it is? This gorgeous dish was done in about 45 minutes—with 25 minutes of that time baking! Check it out—I bet you’ll be adding it to your brunch menu too—
