What Is a Dutch Baby Pancake? 

A Dutch baby pancake, also known as a German pancake or a Dutch puff, is a large pancake made in a skillet. Dutch babies, like American pancakes, use a simple batter made of eggs, flour, milk, and sugar. 

However, instead of cooking them into thin discs on a griddle or skillet, you bake them in the oven. As a result, they rise and become super fluffy. 

When finished, the Dutch baby is golden and crisp on the outside with a soft, custard-like center, like a soufflé. Think of it as a pancake, soufflé, crepe, and popover all rolled into one! 

Serve your Dutch baby pancake warm with a dusting of powdered sugar, fresh fruit, or syrup. It makes for a truly drool-worthy breakfast or brunch!

What’s In a Dutch Baby Recipe?

Traditional Dutch baby pancake recipes consist of a simple, buttery batter. But you already know we had to spruce ours up and make it extra sweet! Here’s what you need for our pancakes with Oreo recipe: 

  • Large Eggs – These help create a rich flavor and help the pancake hold its shape. 
  • Milk – We recommend using whole milk for the richest flavor and creamiest texture. However, any milk you have on hand will work.
  • All-Purpose Flour – Substitute a 1:1 gluten-free all-purpose flour alternative to make this recipe gluten-free.
  • Salt – Just a pinch helps enhance the flavor of the ingredients.
  • Butter – We use unsalted butter in the batter as well as to coat the skillet to prevent the pancake from sticking. 
  • Oreos – Not found in your standard Dutch baby pancake recipe, we adore Oreos and think they make everything better! The cream replaces the need for sugar while also making the batter extra smooth. Then, we sprinkle more on top for added flavor and crunch. 
  • Toppings – Powdered sugar, fresh whipped cream, maple syrup, chocolate sauce, and fresh berries like strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries take this recipe to the next level, making it a mouthwatering treat!

How to Make an Easy Dutch Baby Pancake Recipe

We love to serve this quick Dutch baby pancake with Oreo cookies for holiday gatherings and weekend brunch! 

  1. Prepare. Preheat the oven before you begin.
  2. Make the pancake batter. Add the dry ingredients, part of the butter, and the cream from a few Oreo cookies to a blender. Pulse until smooth, and set the mixture aside.
  3. Melt the butter. Heat a cast-iron skillet over high heat, allowing it to get super hot. Then, add the remaining butter. It should melt quickly and become foamy!
  4. Bake. Pour the Dutch baby batter into the skillet, and sprinkle the crushed Oreos on top. Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven, and bake until the pancake has puffed up and turned golden brown.
  5. Serve. Remove your pancake with Oreos from the oven, add your favorite toppings, and enjoy warm!

Tips and Tricks 

  • Use room temperature ingredients. For easy mixing, let the milk and eggs sit out and come to room temperature before combining the ingredients.
  • Preheat the skillet. You want your skillet to be super hot before adding the batter. This is crucial for the butter to become foamy and create the signature crisp edges and fluffy rise. 
  • Swap out the cast iron. Don’t have a cast iron skillet? No worries! Any large, oven-safe skillet will work great.
  • Whisk by hand. If you don’t have a blender or food processor available, you can whisk the ingredients by hand. Just be sure there are no lumps in the batter!
  • Serve hot. For the best taste and texture, serve your Dutch baby pancake immediately. The longer it sits and cools the more likely it is to deflate

Common Questions About Dutch Baby Pancakes with Oreo Cookies

Can I make a Dutch baby ahead of time? 

Yes, you can prepare the batter, and keep it stored in the fridge up to a day in advance.

Why didn’t my Dutch baby Oreo pancakes recipe rise? 

The most common reason a Dutch baby does not rise is that the skillet was not hot enough when adding the batter. You want it to be practically steaming for the liquid batter to steam and rise before cooking all the way through. 

How long does this Dutch baby pancake with Oreos last?

This recipe is best served fresh. However, leftovers will stay fresh in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to five days. Or, freeze them for up to two months. Just let them thaw in the fridge overnight before serving!

What’s the difference between Yorkshire pudding and a Dutch baby pancake? 

People typically serve Dutch babies sweet, while most commonly, they make Yorkshire pudding recipes savory. Additionally, you prepare Dutch baby pancakes in a large skillet while you divide Yorkshire puddings into single servings. Finally, we make Dutch babies with butter as the primary fat, and Yorkshire pudding uses beef drippings.
