A Dutch baby is a custardy pancake that puffs up dramatically in the oven. It makes a really special breakfast served with a pat of butter, fresh fruit, and a dusting of powdered sugar. By using the steam function of the Anova Precision Oven, this Dutch baby will always stay soft in the center. This pancake does deflate as it cools, so it’s best eaten right after it comes out of the oven. Feel free to adjust the toppings to your taste.
