Easy Dutch Babies Recipe | How to Make a Dutch Baby (1)

These homemade dutch babies are a delicious cross between a baked pancake and a buttery souffle. This easy recipe is a brunch favorite!

Oh, Dutch Babies….how do I love thee? All that buttery goodness, clumps of powdered sugar, crispy crust and light-but-dense center, drizzled with real maple syrup and oozing with down-home goodness. Honestly, although my family likes a lot of different things, there is truly only one dish that can make all four of us downright giddy in anticipation. It is the one dish that we always make for special occasions, for guests, birthdays, & holidays. It is hands down my family’s favorite breakfast.

So what are they? I’m not really sure how to even describe it–a cross between a baked pancake and a soufflé, I suppose, but with none of the stress. I don’t think they are even really Dutch, because although my heritage is 100% Dutch, I tried them for the first time courtesy of my very NON Dutch sister-in-law, Jackie. If anyone knows their origin, please feel free to leave a comment below!

No two Dutch Babies are ever quite the same, but barring some unforeseen disaster, they are all delicious (as those of you who have tried them probably already know.) The best part? You are almost guaranteed to have the ingredients on hand! We have yet to find someone who didn’t love them, but I guess you just never know! If you do try it, please let me know what you think!

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
