Make Dutch Baby Pancakes Like Chrissy Teigen

Chrissy Teigen is an American model, television personality, and author but did you know she is also an avid cook? In fact, the model loves cooking so much that she released her own cookbook called Cravings.

In 2016, the model shared some of her favourite recipes with Vogue magazine. One of them was these Dutch Baby Pancakes.

“My Dutch baby pancakes are my favourite to make for holiday mornings, especially when you have a good crowd of friends or family around. It comes out of the oven so perfectly golden brown and puffed up like a beautiful, buttery cloud. I like to put out a buffet of warm syrup, berries, cream, lemons, and powdered sugar (and Champagne!) so people can do up their slices as they please.”

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour sifted

  1. Preheat the oven to 475 degrees.
  2. Using a blender, blend the eggs, milk, 2 Tbsp melted butter, salt, and flour until smooth/no lumps.
  3. Heat 2 Tbsp of butter over medium-high heat on a 10 or 12 inch cast-iron skillet.
  4. Once foamy, pour the batter from the blender into the cast-iron skillet and bake in the oven for 17-18 minutes. You’ll want to remove the pancake once the top is golden brown and puffy (it’ll puff a lot!).
