I really love quick ideas for breakfast and this Strawberry Dutch Baby Pancake is one of our favorite treats lately. It’s a pleasure to watch this pancake how it puffs in the oven and the texture is simply irresistible. Due to baking in a hot iron cast pan the pancake gets a crispy edge while the interior remain soft and almost like a custard. To enjoy the right texture it is important to serve it right after you take it out of the oven.
You can top it in various ways, in either sweet or savory filling. As strawberries are in season now I really enjoyed this puffed oven pancake in combination with the fresh strawberries on top. You can also drizzle some maple syrup if desired. I am sure you will all love this amazing Strawberry Dutch Baby Pancake. Happy morning everybody!

Is it possible to use a 11-12 inch cast iron skillet, or do we have to use a 9-10 inch cast iron skillet?
If you use a larger cast iron skillet, the depth of layer of egg batter will be thinner and more likely to burn. You can adjust for this by:
(1) decrease the cooking time by couple minutes to allow for the difference in the depth of the batter or
(2) increase the amount of batter by this addition: 1 egg, 1/4 cup each of the milk and flour, 1 tsp sugar, 1/4 tsp vanilla, or
(3) using a 9 – 10 inch regular stainless steel or aluminum cake pan instead of the cast iron skillet.
I would not use a cake pan with a nonstick coating because the high temperature may damage the nonstick coating. You can “mini” Dutch babies by using a large muffin pan and pouring the batter into each individual muffin cup. There are plenty of recipes on Pinterest that give you cooking times for Dutch babies for different sized pans, muffin tins, and different sweet and savory options.
