Savoury Dutch Baby pancake toppings

When you think of pancakes, dinner isn't usually the first thing that comes to mind. But with the Dutch Baby pancake, you can enjoy puffy, fluffy goodness at any time of the day! Like crepes, the simple batter for Dutch Babies can easily lean sweet or savoury. The thin batter is poured into a piping hot pan and then baked until it's puffed and crisp around the edges, and tender in the centre. Check out these savoury topping ideas and learn how to make a Dutch Baby for dinner.

How to serve Dutch Babies

Make the meal more exciting by making a build-your-own toppings station. Prepare toppings and lay them out on the table, buffet style, so that everyone can grab a bit of what they like. Pull the Dutch Baby out of the oven, soak in the oohs and ahhs and then slice up the pancake so everyone gets a serve on their plate. Let everyone help themselves to their own toppings and sit back and enjoy!

Since there's no baking powder in Dutch Baby pancake batter, it can also be made ahead of time. It can even be put in the fridge overnight if you plan on having brunch at home, just remember to let it come to room temperature before baking. Try making 2-3 servings of the batter and making more pancakes so everyone has their fill. Always preheat the pan between servings and you'll end up with puffy pancakes every time.
