Breakfast is one of my favorite meals of the day but most of the time I’m too lazy to actually make breakfast. This means I make a lot of breakfast for dinner or breakfast for lunch. Until I made this recipe I had never made myself a Dutch baby before. Can you believe that?

I had seen them on various blogs and of course had seen them in magazines. I always imagined them being complicated or hard to make. Umm…nope.

Easy.

Like really easy.

All you have to do is throw some ingredients into a blender (I used my Vitamix) blend and let the mixture sit for about 30 minutes. Then throw it into a buttery cast iron skillet and bake.

Sweet baby J it’s heaven. It’s the perfect mix of crispy to spongy (does that sound too weird?) textures and needed zero sweetener on top but I still opted to throw on a little powdered sugar. I jazzed it up in the flavor department by adding a little orange zest and fresh cranberries. I love the natural tartness of fresh cranberries and it gave the dish the perfect balance of flavors.

I would end this post by telling you Art loved the dish but I ate it all before he got home. I couldn’t help myself. It’s seriously that good.

Pour in batter and and sprinkle the top with fresh cranberries.

Add into the preheated oven and bake for about 15 minutes until the sides are puffed up around the edges and golden brown. The center will should rise in little pockets as well.

This simple turkey wild rice chili is the perfect way to use up all that leftover Thanksgiving turkey. Full of spicy flavor and perfect when topped with crackers.

This looks/sounds beyond delicious! I've never had a Dutch Baby, would love to try it and have a couple of questions. As one who owns a food processor but not a blender, does that work okay? Also, I do not own any cast iron skillets, but do have others that will go in the oven. I assume something else would work as long as it's not too light-weight, but have you ever cooked one in anything other than a cast iron pan? Thank you for sharing this recipe and (hopefully) for answering my questions!

Hi Elaine! I have never used a food processor for this but I think it would work fine. You just want the mixture nice and smooth. Also it should work fine in another oven save nonstick skillet :)
