Dutch Baby Pancake

About the bake

We're going all continental in the world of pancakes! This is officially known as a German Pancake, another name for it is a Dutch Baby Pancake. It looks like a giant Yorkshire pudding but has the taste and consistency of a custard tart. You have many choices for serving suggestions. We recommend any of the following: blueberries, lemon slices, Billington's maple syrup, cream, yoghurt or creme fraiche and icing sugar.

  1. Step 1:

    Preheat your oven to 220'c/200'c fan/Gas Mark 7 and put a 25cm cast iron pan or deep round enamel pie dish into the oven to heat up.

  2. Step 2:

    Pop the butter in the hot dish to melt, but now work quickly to prepare the batter so the butter doesn’t burn.

  3. Step 3:

    Whisk the eggs and the sugar until frothy and pale, then add the milk, flour, vanilla, nutmeg and a pinch of salt and beat until you have a thin, smooth mixture like a Yorkshire pudding batter.

  4. Step 4:

    Remove your pan from the oven and swiftly pour in your batter and put straight back into the oven.

  5. Step 5:

    Bake for 18 minutes by which time the pancake will be well risen.
