This Blueberry Dutch Baby Pancake makes a delicious breakfast recipe that is perfect for special occasions but easy enough for a weekday!
Why we Love this Easy and Delicious Breakfast Recipe
Sometimes referred to as german pancakes, dutch babies are an easy and delicious baked breakfast pancake that bake up all puffy and golden on the edges, and dense and custardy in the middle. The batter gets whipped up in a blender, then thrown in a super hot oven. The whole thing comes together in a flash and it is so delicious! We’ve made a plain version for years, and recently decided to try adding some fresh blueberries before baking. It made an already amazing breakfast even better.
This dish makes a great breakfast for holidays or special occasions because it looks impressive, tastes amazing, and comes together super quickly. We served ours topped with extra blueberries, a dusting of powdered sugar, and a drizzle of maple syrup. They were a huge hit!
Ingredients You’ll Need to Make Blueberry Dutch Baby Pancakes:
- All-Purpose Flour
How to Make a Blueberry Dutch Baby Pancake:
- Preheat your oven. Preheat your oven to 425℉. Once the oven is almost heated, add the butter to your baking dish and put it in the oven to melt. It’ll only take a couple minutes. Once fully melted, remove your dish from the oven and set it on the stove.
- Make the pancake batter. Meanwhile, add the milk, eggs, sugar, flour and salt to a blender. Blend on a low setting and mix until the batter is smooth.
- Bake. Pour the batter into your prepared baking dish. Swirl with the tip of a knife to distribute the melted butter if desired. Top with blueberries, then put in the oven and bake for 14-16 minutes or until the pancake begins to puff around the edges and turn golden brown.
- Serve. Remove from the oven and slice. Serve with warm maple syrup, powdered sugar, and extra blueberries. Enjoy!

- Preheat your oven to 425℉. When the oven is about 400℉, add the butter to an 8×8 square or 2 quart oval baking dish and put it in the oven to melt. Watch the butter to make sure that it doesn't brown. Once it is fully melted, you can remove it from the oven and set it on your stove.
- While the oven is preheating, combine the milk, eggs, sugar, flour and salt into a blender. Use the batter setting or a lower setting on your blender and mix until all the ingredients are smooth.
- Pour the batter into your hot pan over the melted butter. If the butter only disperses to the edges, you can use a butter knife to swirl it around the batter. Sprinkle the blueberries over the batter.
- Bake for 14-16 minutes or until the pancake begins to puff around the edges and turn golden brown.
- Remove from the oven and slice. Serve with warm maple syrup, powdered sugar, and extra blueberries. Enjoy!
