A blueberry Dutch pancake takes advantage of the last of the summer blueberries to make an impressive and unique brunch dish that will satisfy your whole family. 

Making them in individual skillets allows everyone to have their very own pancake. Who doesn’t love getting their own skillet?

I like to serve them with homemade sausage or Candied Bourbon Bacon, French-Style Scrambled Eggs, and Strawberries Romanoff for a decadent, yet easy meal.

What Is A Dutch Baby Pancake?

A Dutch baby pancake is a cross between a Yorkshire pudding, a crepe, and a pancake. Thin pancake batter is poured into a hot skillet and popped into the oven to bake. The pancake puffs up high and fluffy and will collapse once removed from the oven. It’s more eggy, chewy, and denser than a regular pancake. But the best part is that it feeds four people. No flipping multiple pancakes!

Ingredients Needed

  • Butter – I used salted European butter for a bit more richness and flavor, but any butter will work. Don’t use margarine.
  • Blueberries – if you have great fresh blueberries, by all means, use them! But frozen berries work great – and you can toss them in without thawing them first!
  • Eggs
  • Half and Half
  • Sugar
  • Vanilla and almond extract – I like the flavor combination of both extracts, but just vanilla works as well.
  • Flour
  • Cinnamon
  • Powdered sugar
  • Jam, maple syrup, or fresh fruit for serving

Description

Think of an easy, elegant breakfast that combines a blueberry crepe, a popover, and a blueberry clafoutis and you have a blueberry dutch pancake! A bit of maple syrup and homemade breakfast sausage makes for a breakfast worthy of a lazy Sunday brunch!


Ingredients

Scale

2 tablespoons butter, melted

1 ¼ cups frozen blueberries, unthawed

3 large eggs, room temperature

½ cup half and half, room temperature

3 tablespoons granulated sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 teaspoon almond extract

½ cup all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon cinnamon

Powder sugar, for dusting

Jam, or syrup for serving.


Instructions

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees,

Spray a large cast iron skillet or four (6.5-inch) cast iron skillets with cooking spray and set aside.

Add a half tablespoon of butter to each skillet and place them in the hot oven to allow the butter to melt.

When the butter is sizzling but has not been browned, remove the skillet from the oven.

Sprinkle the frozen blueberries in the bottom of the hot skillets.

In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, half and half, sugar, vanilla, and almond extract until well combined.

Add the flour and cinnamon and whisk until you have a smooth batter without lumps.

Pour the batter over the blueberries in each skillet.

Bake in the preheated oven for 10 – 15 minutes until the center is set, the pancakes are puffed and the edges begin to curl.

Remove the skillets from the oven and allow them to cool for 2-3 minutes.

Dust the pancakes with powdered sugar and serve with jam or maple syrup.
