Basic Dutch Baby

Lodge Cast Iron | July 22, 2016

Sometimes known as a German pancake or Bismark, the Dutch Baby is a quick dish that’s as fun to watch puff up in the oven as it is to eat. 

Treat it like a pancake by adding maple syrup and fruit, or make it savory with mushrooms and cheese. The possibilities are endless!
