What is a Dutch Baby Pancake?
A Dutch Baby Pancake, also called German Pancake, is a large popover or puffed pancake, made in a large skillet, that takes only 5 minutes to make and 20 minutes in the oven! It’s perfect for breakfast, brunch or dessert, and can be served with a variety of toppings.
While cooking, Dutch Baby pancakes puff up but deflate very quickly once you remove them from the oven. This is normal and not much you can do about it! That’s how they’re supposed to be.
Below I’m sharing 2 ways to make and serve a Dutch Baby. One for dessert and one for breakfast!

Dutch baby pancakes are SO easy to make. Preheat the oven to 425F and melt some butter onto your non-stick ceramic pan (I use GreenPan). Gather your ingredients, and combine the wet ingredients with the dry, fold in the chocolate chips and transfer to heated pan. Cook for 20 minutes. Done!
Really, it’s that easy!
Tips for making a dutch baby pancake
- Make sure your ingredients are room temperature, especially your eggs.
- Preheat the pan and melt 1 tablespoon of butter, swirling to coat the entire surface. Large pans and skillets can take a while to heat up, this way once your batter is ready, your pancake will start cooking.
- Add chocolate chips, espresso chips or fruits to the batter for a fun twist on a classic dutch baby.
- Dutch Babies can be topped with basically anything! I like mine with Nutella and strawberries. Any seasonal fruit would work, as well as maple or honey.
- Use a ceramic non-stick pan that is non-toxic, such as GreenPan’s Craft Line (pictured). I used the 10″ and 12″ pans, and absolutely loved them! Nothing sticks! And they’re oven safe to 600F.
Best Toppings for a Dutch Baby Pancake
A classic Dutch Baby can be topped with warm maple or honey, whipped cream or yogurt, seasonal fruits such as strawberries, raspberries, caramelized peaches, or simply powdered sugar.
Here I’m sharing my 2 favorite ways to serve a dutch baby:
- Chocolate Chips with Nutella and Strawberries: fold in mini chocolate chips into the batter. Once cooked and still warm, add a few tablespoons of Nutella, add sliced strawberries and a drizzle of honey. Perfect for dessert!
- A classic dutch baby with powdered sugar: whipped vanilla bean yogurt (greek yogurt or whipped cream also work), raspberries and honey. Perfect for breakfast!
