Whole Wheat Dutch Baby

Servings 4


  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon butter


  1. In a blender, combine all the ingredients except the butter and pulse just a few times. Scrape down the side of the blender with a rubber spatula and then pulse a few more times. You want to blend well, so there are no big lumps, but you also want to avoid over-blending.

  2. Preheat the over to 400°F. While the oven is preheating, leave the skillet(s) you plan to use in there so they will also heat up with the oven. Once preheated, add butter to the skillet(s) and use a rubber spatula to gently move it around so the butter coats all the sides, bottom, and corners well. Then pour the batter not the heated skillet(s) and pop back in the oven for 18 minutes. Do not open the oven while they bake, as this can make them deflate.

Recipe Notes

I like to use two 8-inch cast-iron skillets for this recipe. But you could also use one large (like 12-14 inch) skillet instead. You do not have to use a cast-iron skillet, any oven safe pan will work well here.
