  • 3 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • Powdered sugar, for dusting (optional)
  • Fresh berries, for serving (optional)
  • Maple syrup, for serving (optional)


  1. Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). Place a 10-inch cast-iron skillet or oven-safe skillet in the oven while it preheats.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, flour, milk, granulated sugar, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and salt until smooth and well combined. The batter will be thin.
  3. Carefully remove the hot skillet from the oven using oven mitts. Add the butter to the skillet and swirl it around until melted and evenly coating the bottom.
  4. Quickly pour the batter into the hot skillet over the melted butter. Return the skillet to the oven.
  5. Bake the Dutch baby for 15-20 minutes or until puffed up and golden brown around the edges.
  6. Remove the skillet from the oven. The Dutch baby will deflate slightly as it cools.
  7. Dust with powdered sugar if desired and serve warm with fresh berries and maple syrup.
  8. Enjoy your delicious Dutch Baby Bake!

Note: The Dutch baby is best served immediately as it tends to deflate as it cools.
