I really love making oven baked breakfast/brunch/lunch. It feels so cozy, like you’re preparing something extra delicious and the best thing is that they’re really easy to make. I’ve been making sweet dutch babies for very long but now I had to try a savory one. And it’s just divine. Im more of a savory person, so I can’t understand why I haven’t made a savory one earlier. Dutch baby might sound a bit intriguing to some people. But they’re silly easy to make! You just have to make the batter and then pour it into an oven safe baking pan and let the oven take care of the rest. This savory dutch baby is served with fresh spinach, sweet, juicy fresh figs and creamy and salty feta cheese. I also topped my dutch baby with some honey, and that was just icing on the cake! This savory dutch baby is both delicious, comforting and cozy yet still fresh, light and not at all overwhelming. Serve this dutch baby for breakfast, brunch or lunch. It is gluten free and can also be made dairy free.
A few tips:
- Make sure that the oven and skillet is really hot before pouring the batter into the pan.
- Don’t open the oven while it’s baking, that might cause it to fall together and prevent it from rising.
- The dutch baby looses its puff after a few minutes from when you have removed it from the oven.
- Just bake the dutch baby until it has risen and is golden brown. Don’t bake it for too long, then it will turn our dry.
- You can use dairy free milk if preferred.
