Berry Dutch Baby Pancakes
Summer / Spring / Breakfast / Coconut Oil / Cook / Joy the Baker / Vegetarian /
I believe we should all be able to enjoy berry pancakes without standing in front of the griddle flipping individual pancakes. No one should have to suffer through pancake flipping on a Saturday morning. The Dutch baby pancake is the answer to our lazy weekend prayers. Oven baked in a skillet seasoned with coconut oil creates a wonderfully eggy and fluffy pancake. Top it off with cinnamon, sugar and fresh berries. It’s divine!
PREP, COOK, TOTAL TIME
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes
Total time: 35 minutes
For Dutch Baby:
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 large eggs, at room temperature for 30 minutes
2/3 cup whole milk, at room temperature
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons LouAna® 100% Pure Coconut Oil
2 cups fresh berries (I used sliced strawberries, fresh raspberries, and fresh blueberries)
Place a rack in the center of the oven and preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
In a small bowl, stir together sugar and cinnamon. Set aside.
Beat eggs with an electric beater or mixer on medium-high until pale and frothy, about 3 to 5 minutes. Beat in the milk, flour, cinnamon, and salt. Beat until thoroughly combined. The batter will be very thin.
Place a 10-inch cast iron (or oven safe) skillet on the stovetop over medium heat. Melt the coconut oil in the skillet. Remove from heat and immediately pour the batter into the pan. Immediately place the pan in the oven and bake for 18 to 22 minutes or until golden-brown and puffed.
While the Dutch baby bakes, add a few spoonfuls of the cinnamon sugar mixture to the fresh berries. Stir and let rest until ready to serve.
Remove the baked and puffed Dutch baby from the oven and immediately sprinkle generously with cinnamon and sugar. Add the berries.
Slice and serve. Dutch babies are best served just after it comes out of the oven.

I love Dutch babies (German pancakes) and make them often, but have always used butter. I was happy to see this recipe and will be using my coconut oil in place of the butter from now on.
