Chef John's Dutch Babies
I've always been fascinated by how many different breakfast foods you can create using just milk, eggs, and flour; and this is one of the more interesting examples. Especially considering the unusual, and borderline disturbing name. Sometimes called German pancakes, these have very little to do with Germany, and nothing to do with the Dutch. Apparently they were invented by German immigrants who were referred to as Dutch.
German Pancake with Buttermilk Sauce
This is a great breakfast item, now a tradition for my family. It tastes like French toast without the bread!
German Apple Pancake
Also known as a Dutch baby, this is a terrific 'special day' recipe. If you are strapped for time, you can start it the evening before and pretty much pop it in the oven. The presentation is excellent! You can shorten the preparation time by using apple pie filling, but the crisp of new apples really makes it.
Finnish Kropser (Baked Pancakes)
This delicious bar is a treat that can be served for breakfast or with tea. Serve with syrup, jelly or honey.
Danish Oven Pancake (Aeggekage)
An Aeggekage is a traditional Danish oven pancake, usually served as a buffet item or as a dessert for a family holiday meal. It is a light, cake-like dish that is not too sweet and absolutely delicious with fresh seasonal berries and fresh whipped cream! (Think of it as a sweetened Yorkshire pudding). Just make sure you serve immediately, this pancake does not do well cold nor is it a good leftover. But chances are you won't have any remaining Aeggekage to worry about!
Peachy Baked Pancake
A great alternative to the everyday pancake. This recipe calls for sliced peaches, but any fruit can be substituted. Try bananas and chocolate chips for a special treat.
Baked Apple-Pecan Maple Pancakes
These pancakes have the maple syrup baked right inside of them! Add more if you really like maple syrup.
