This vanilla bean dutch baby is PACKED full of vanilla beans and topped with lots of fresh summer berries. It’s so easy to make and sure to impress your whole family. Plus, who doesn’t love vanilla beans and berries?
I know, I’m back at it again with the Dutch babies but I can’t help it! They are so good I want to eat them every. single. day. PLUS this version is packed full of vanilla beans so if you’re a vanilla bean lover this baby is for you! Of course, I couldn’t just serve mine with plain so I also topped this baby with a sweet vanilla bean mascarpone whipped cream. Yeah, this baby is flavor packed!
Again, don’t worry if you’ve never made a Dutch baby before I swear they are easy. The hardest part is waiting for it to cook. Which we all know is the hardest part of any recipe. Am I right? Another great thing about Dutch babies is that it makes a large family breakfast a billion times easier. It’s great to sit in front a griddle making pancake after pancake BUT with this baby all you have to do is throw the batter in the pan, throw the pan in the oven and boom. Giant pancake for a family of 4 is served. OR if you’re my husband and I a giant pancake for 2 is served. I can’t help it. I probably eat far more than my share of these little-puffed pancakes.
Now, I used my most favorite vanilla bean paste in this vanilla bean Dutch baby because it makes getting vanilla beans into anything super easy. BUT if you can’t find it or have any on hand you can substitute the vanilla bean paste with vanilla extract or the inside scrapings of a fresh vanilla bean. PLUS make sure you use an awesome non-stick pan because it’s a major sad panda when your Dutch baby won’t come out of its pan. I used my favorite 12-inch non-stick American Kitchen frying pan because that baby is the bomb!
