It’s Monday Treat Yourself – Dutch Baby Recipe

It’s Monday, they can be tough, so treat yourself to this delicious breakfast and start the week off right. Although, these are pancakes they look very much like a large Yorkshire pudding and like a Yorkshire pudding they need to be eaten straight from the oven as they do begin to deflate the longer they are out of the oven. These delicious aerated pancakes aren’t difficult to make and have a very American diner style breakfast feel about them. It is in this fashion I like to eat them with crispy bacon, poached eggs and maple syrup. But you could have them sprinkled with caster sugar and a squeeze of lemon juice as is traditional or try with berries and a good dusting of icing sugar. Don’t worry if your pancakes have puffed up in the centre and there is no hollow to fill with whatever goodness you want. When this happens, you will find when you remove them from the oven that the hollow is on the underside so simply flip over. Kids love these and they make a great afternoon treat as well served with cream or ice cream, some chopped fresh berries and a drizzled with chocolate sauce.

A super aerated pancake that at first glance may be mistaken for a giant Yorkshire pudding. These gorgeous pancakes just like all other pancakes lend themselves well to so many accompaniments. Whether that be simply dusted with icing sugar, crispy bacon, maple syrup, fresh berries, or eggs its delicious.

Note: it is extremely important that ingredients are at room temperature prior to cooking or you simply won't get enough rise.
