Big. Baked. Pear Pancake. I’ve always been wanting to name a recipe Dutch Baby. This has got to be the simplest way to make pancakes. No flipping, babysitting…watching. The magic happens all on its own.
Hopefully, you guys love breakfast as much as I do…I’ll be sharing a lot of them in the upcoming weeks. Dig in…
My pal Averie has the best description of the Dutch Baby pancake…she says:
A playful name for an oven-baked pancake that has the chewiness of crepes with the thickness of clafoutis. It doesn’t have the sponginess that traditional pancakes have. It’s more dense and chewy than soft and fluffy.
As you can see part of this shoot was done in the snow. We have had lots of the fluffy white stuff in Telluride.
I grabbed my cast iron skillet and placed it in the snow. Only thing was ~ huge quantities of heavy snow kept falling from our roof while I was shooting this. Which meant that I could easily get whacked in the head & neck.
Sort of like a house avalanche…to keep out of harm’s way this all needed to happen quickly. Hence, back to the white farm table, tucked safely back in my house…
The pears in this baked pancake are sautéed in some coconut oil, lemon juice & maple syrup before they get baked.
For both presentation and flavor, I topped this beauty with dried cranberries, walnuts, and more maple. I suggest you do too!
