Dutch Baby Pancake with Blackberries

Spice up your typical weekend breakfast with a delicious Dutch Baby Pancake topped with blackberries. It’s quick and easy with only one pan!

Jump to Recipe

My boys love when we have pancakes for breakfast on the weekends. We usually make Bisquick pancakes, and sometimes I add a few extras to them, like chocolate chips. Other times, I want something a bit different myself. I’ve heard of Dutch Baby Pancakes, but this was my first time making one on my own.

Y’all know I love meals that can be made with only one pan! This Dutch Baby Pancake uses a blender, a cast-iron skillet, and a mixing bowl. Few dishes means that clean-up is a breeze.

We have a few huge blackberry bushes out in our backyard garden, so we used a few freshly picked blackberries to top the pancake.

If yours is like mine, it may end up uneven. I’ve tried a few times, and it tends to happen consistently. I don’t know if my oven doesn’t heat evenly or if I tip the pan a bit as I move it. But, no matter what it looks like, your family will likely devour this as mine did.

Step by Step

Ingredients

  • 3 eggs
  • 2/3 cup flour
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp molasses
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 6 oz blackberries
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp powdered sugar

Preparation

Place a 12-inch cast-iron skillet in the oven and preheat to 400F.

Combine the eggs, flour, milk, sugar, molasses, pumpkin pie spice, and salt in a blender and puree until smooth.

Remove the pan from the oven and add the butter until melted. Swirl to coat the bottom and sides of the pan.Remember, the dutch baby pancake will grow while baking, so you don’t want it to stick to any of the pan.

Pour the pancake batter into the pan. Don’t worry if it mixed with the butter or pushes it to a side. It will even out as it cooks.

Bake for about 15-20 minutes, until the pancake is golden brown.

Meanwhile, slice the blackberries in half. In a small bowl, toss the blackberries with lemon juice and powdered sugar.

Leftovers

Keep any leftover Dutch Baby Pancake in an airtight container in the refrigerator. I suggest adding the blackberries onto each serving if you know you will have extra because it would be best if those were stored in a separate container. Otherwise, all the liquid from the berries will seep into the Dutch Baby Pancake and make it soggy. Reheat in a toaster oven or in the oven until warmed through and top with berries.

Can I use a different type of berry?

Yes! I think these would be delicious with strawberries or blueberries as well. We used blackberries since we have them growing in the backyard.

My Dutch Baby Pancake fell after it was removed from the oven. Is this normal?

Yep, this is completely normal. Once it starts to cool, the pancake will fall in the middle.

    1. They are fun to make. You could use a mixture of nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, and cloves. That’s what it’s made of. At a minimum, I would make sure to use some cinnamon.

    1. This was the first time I had as well. My husband made them before since he took German classes in high school so he was the one who wanted to learn to make them ourselves.
