There’s nothing like a delicious Baby for breakfast.

I’m talking, of course, about the Dutch Baby, a dramatically puffy oven pancake with a light, souffle-like texture and delicate, sophisticated flavor. For all its fancy appearance, it couldn’t be easier to make, and is rendered even more delightful when you add a healthy dollop of rich, creamy peanut butter. While any type of creamy peanut butter will work, I say go all the way and use Dark Chocolate Dreams Peanut Butter–it adds a decidedly decadent edge to this breakfast beauty.

Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 25 minutes
Total time: 40 minutes
Yields: 4 servings


¼ cup butter, softened
3 eggs
¾ cup milk
¾ cup flour/span>
2 tablespoons Dark Chocolate Dreams peanut butter (other relatively smooth-textured peanut butters will also work well, including Mighty Maple and White Chocolate Wonderful)


1. Preheat oven to 425°F. You’ll need a 2-3 quart oven-friendly pan or skillet (a pie pan will work too)

2. Place butter in your pan and set in the oven.

3. While the butter melts, quickly make up the batter. Put the eggs in a blender or food processor and mix at high speed for about one minute. Pour in the milk (if you’re using a food processor leave the motor running), and slowly add the flour bit by bit. Add the peanut butter last, mixing rapidly until it is mixed thoroughly.

4. Remove the pan from the oven and give it a shake to disperse the butter. Pour in the batter and return the pan to the oven until the pancake is fluffy and browned on the edges (20 to 25 minutes).

5. Once ready, serve immediately as it will fall a bit (like a souffle).

6. Garnish as desired: with confectioners’ sugar, whipped cream, fresh banana slices, or my favorite, peanut butter buttercream.

    I would have liked it better with unsalted butter… the kids didnt like it though, but I’ll be trying it again… yum!

  5. CakeSpy says:

    Eliza: I can see how it might be a bit sophisticated for kids. I love slightly salty so would probably suggest that those who don’t use unsalted and add to taste or not at all, that is a good point! Glad you enjoyed it and can’t wait to hear about any variations you dream up!

    What’s the Peanut Butter Buttercream?

  7. Debbie says:

    That’s an interesting way to make Dutch Babies. I’ve always made them by beating the egg, Adding sifted flour first (it ends up pretty stiff), then slowly adding the milk. I was told that if you add the ingredients in this order the Dutch Baby will stay puffed up.?? I’ll have to try this recipe. Thanks

  12. kristin says:

    oh my! this looks absolutely delicious! if i were baking something just for myself, this is what it would be. i looooove making dutch babies for breakfast, but have only ever varied them by using different kinds of extracts (vanilla, almond, etc.) or topping them with different kinds of fruit — I would love to try this with the dark chocolate dreams pb — i would really feel like i was treating myself to a little piece of heaven <3

    Ok so this is SOOOOOO GOOD. I made it with non chocolate PB and topped with chocolate chips. I also used GF flour so mine was a lot thicker than yours looked but oh so good. The kids begged me to make it a second morning in a row. Thanks for this delicious recipe!!!
