How To: Make Mini Dutch Baby Pancakes

The first time I made a dutch baby pancake my mind was blown that it reached such great heights!

The egg in the hot pan really creates a delightful dish that you can ooh and aah over.

After several dutch babies have blossomed in my oven, I wanted to try minis for an individualized brunch treat! I envision a mini dutch baby bar with tons of toppings consisting of all things sweet and savory, and allowing each person to craft their own

  • Step 1:  Preheat the oven to 425° F. The key to the pancakes rising is a hot pan. Place the muffin pan in the oven as it is preheating to get it nice and hot. Use a honeycomb muffin pan for less spills and more fun.
  • Step 2: In a small pan, start the mixed berry compote over medium heat. Add mixed berries, lemon juice, and sugar and bring to a simmer. Then reduce the heat to low.
  • Step 3: Add all the dutch baby ingredients to a bowl and whisk thoroughly. Most recipes call for blending the ingredients but I never like to dirty my blender unnecessarily and have never had any issues.
  • Step 4: When the oven is heated, remove the pan and spray generously with avocado oil. Butter or coconut oil can be used. Ensure the sides are not overlooked.
  • Step 5: Pour the batter into the molds and cook for 16-18 minutes or until the pancakes are golden brown. Top with mixed berry compote and powdered sugar to serve.
