Are you familiar with theDutch Baby? The concept on this thing is so on point.

Let’s think about this. Who is a large-and-in-charge skillet flapjack wrong for? I couldn’t tell ya. Don’t even want to solve that quandary. I can say, this majorly large pancake situation is perfect under the following conditions:

  • You’re serving guests slash family.
  • You have taste buds and a stomach organ.
  • You can lay some serious mouth on a batch of pancakes every day but are a firm believer that even the best things in life should be easy like Sunday morning.
  • You can’t be bothered with repetitive pancake flipping because you have laundry to do and little rascals to to herd.
  • You locked your keys in your car and needed to run 3 uphill miles home on a 6-lane busy street on a Saturday with a whisky hangover, then 3 miles back uphill (okay, you caught me…downhill the second time) to said vehicle with your spare key and all you could think about the whole time was old fashioned glazed doughnuts…

…if any or all of the above pertain, then this dutch baby thing is for you.

Big portion pancake. Big portion comfort food. Big skillet, low maintenance, best when eaten in volume.

Let’s talk recipe formula, folks.

This is basically the only Dutch baby recipe you’ll need in your life ever. The almond flour/tapioca flour combo keeps this breakfast gluten free, and yields a fluffy yet dense result, the way a good Dutch baby should be. It’s also dairy-free, refined sugar-free, and paleo-friendly.

For me, simply serving the pancake with fresh fruit and whipped cream is the key to a super satisfying morning wake up call. You can step it up a notch by stewing the fruit to make a compote, or serve with butter and pure maple syrup.

Keeping the pancake dairy-free, I used unsweetened almond milk.

How to Make Paleo Dutch Baby:

Preparing this pancake is laughably easy.

You simply blend all of the ingredients together in a blender, pour the batter in a cast iron skillet and bake it off.

No hovering over the stove, no botched pancake flips, just an easy skillet of fluffy pancake lovin’ for the whole family to share. Or for you to eat by your onesie…that’s cool, too.

Hello! I'm not sure what happened but my Dutch baby came out underdone. I even tried putting part of it in my toaster oven and the rest back in the oven for an additional 6 minutes and it was crispy on the outside but wet on the inside. I was about to throw it out and my husband stuck it in the air fryer. Still the insides were wet. My first thought was it needed baking powder. Any thoughts?

I HATE having to stand and flip pancakes all morning, so this is the perfect entertaining solution! Or even when I'm not entertaining and am just craving something a little extra special for breakfast.
