There was a restaurant that served gigantic pancakes called Dutch Baby pancakes near my house. The golden brown pancakes with mounds of apples, powdered sugar and whipped cream amazed my brothers and me when we were small. Our parents would never let us order one just for ourselves. Mom would order one Dutch Baby Pancake for the table and everyone got to have a piece of it. They were so delicious. I could not wait until I was old enough to order one, all for my very own.
These pancakes aren’t really pancakes at all, but are a type of popover. The Dutch Baby pancake will puff up while cooking, then falls after being removed from the oven.
No matter what you call them, they are delicious. You can make the full size version, or the mini version. I love to serve the mini version, especially when we have brunch. I will make a double batch of minis to serve in our brunch buffet.
Served with fresh fruit, a dusting of powdered sugar and whip cream, these lightly sweet cakes are a beautiful addition to a brunch or breakfast table.
