Recipe: Blueberry-Lemon Dutch Baby

My cooking skills are mediocre, to say the least. I can follow a recipe to an extent, but my plating is atrocious and the food is fine, nothing spectacular. I do love to read recipes and try and imagine a world where I can really execute a dish perfectly; usually I make a mess. But I’ve been trying to find recipes that are easy enough and work on my skills from there. I recently saw a recipe for a Dutch Baby from Nerds With Knives. It seemed easy enough, and looked like something fun to make with a friend for breakfast so we decided to give it a whirl. Spoiler alert, this recipe was super easy and sure to impress all of your friends!

If you don’t know – a Dutch Baby is a mix between a crepe, a pancake, and a pop-over. And it is 100% delicious. Recently, lemon – blueberry has been my favorite flavor combination. I started making jam over the summer with extra farmers market produce (recipe coming soon) and I’m always looking for uses other than toast and jam.


Blueberry Lemon Dutch Baby

Blueberry Lemon Dutch Baby

  • 3 eggs
  • ½ cup flour
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons finely grated lemon zest (1 small lemon)
  • Pinch of kosher salt
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • Confectioners sugar for dusting (optional)
  • ¼ cup lemon curd
  • ¼ cup blueberry-lemon jam
  • ½ pint blueberries
  • 1 lemon, sliced thin


  1. Preheat oven to 425º F
  2. Add eggs, flour, milk, sugar, vanilla, salt, and lemon zest together into a blender and blend until smooth.
  3. Place butter in a cast iron skillet and place in the oven until butter has melted (just a few minutes, don’t wander off). Pour the batter into the pan, return them to oven and bake for 20 minutes, until the pancake is puffed and golden.
  4. Lower oven temperature to 300 degrees and bake five minutes longer.
  5. Remove the pancake from the oven, top with lemon curd, blueberry-lemon jam, fresh berries, and sliced lemon.
  6. Dust with confectioners’ sugar
  7. Cut Dutch Baby into wedges and enjoy!

Since we made this recipe, I’ve been looking up other alternatives because it was so easy to make and insanely delicious. I think a bacon, egg, and cheese Dutch Baby will be in my future!
