Banana Nutella Dutch Baby Pancake

Banana Nutella Dutch Baby Pancake

Dutch baby pancakes are nothing so complex. They are just baked pancakes, but without any rising agents but with only eggs to help them popover. Made with basics of the ingredients, these pancakes[Singular though, made in one pan in our recipe] are very very simple and toppings are just as per your wish. So my Banana Nutella Dutch baby pancake is a base recipe where you can cut the banana and nutella, add your own toppings or ingredients to make your favorite combination of this puffy, crispy at the edges baked pancake.

So I said basics of the ingredients – that’s correct. All are pantry staples. You need milk, eggs, flour, salt and butter. Sugar in the batter is optional, flavorings are optional and any other ingredients you add are extremely optional. This is such a simple recipe where you need to check only the below things when you make this pancake.

  1. Use only room temperature or slightly warm milk.
  2. Use only room temperature eggs – put the eggs in warm water for a few minutes if they are cold.
  3. Use a cast iron pan for better results.
  4. Aerate the batter in a blender or hand whisk at least for 30 seconds to a minute.

Just ensure these steps are followed, you have the best of the Dutch baby pancake in no time at all, getting baked in the oven while you do about making your other work or relax.

Another important things in making a dutch baby pancake is having a hot pot with hot fat[Butter] in it. There are two ways to do it..

  1. Put the pan with the butter in the oven while it is preheating. So the pan is hot, butter is all melted and hot when you pour the batter in. Please use oven mittens while you do this recipe.
  2. Or, my favorite method. Heat the pan on stove top add the butter and let it melt and get hot. Pour the batter on the hot pan while the stove is still on. Then take the pan off heat and put in the oven to bake.

Any of these methods will work – so do as per your convenience and time.


Another important thing to remember, eat them warm or piping hot 🙂
