It’s all well and good until someone has to stand in front of the stove and flip the pancakes.
It’s a thankless job and I wouldn’t wish pancake flipping onto anyone’s relaxed weekend.
Luckily, where there are a few eggs, a bit of flour and milk, and a big ol’ handful of berries…. there is a Dutch Baby. Pancake sans flip.
Dutch Babies exist in the delicious land between pancake and popover. They’re tender and eggy, light and crunchy. They’re also quite a spectacle coming out of the oven. They’re show-offs. It’s cool. Breakfast can be dramatic.
