Units Scale
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons (2 ounces) unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat your oven to 400 F (200 C). Put your butter in a 10-inch cast iron skillet or other oven-proof pan and put it in the oven to melt the butter. Be careful not to let it burn.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, gently whisk together flour, sugar, and salt. In a small bowl, beat together the milk and eggs. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and gently but quickly whisk to combine. Mix until just combined and not a second longer. A few lumps are fine.
  3. Using a pot holder, remove your pan of hot butter from the oven. Pour the batter into the cast iron skillet and put it back in the oven. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
  4. Remove the Dutch Baby to a serving plate and cut into wedges to serve. Top with your favorite flavors.
