Y’all. This Paleo Dutch baby recipe is SO YUM. I love tackling the challenge of a recipe that has exclusively non-Paleo ingredients 🙂 What a challenge! A traditional dutch baby recipe calls for eggs, flour, milk, sugar, and butter. Four out of five of those ingredients aren’t Paleo!

Paleo Dutch Baby Recipe

In this Paleo Dutch baby recipe, we use a mixture of my favorite Paleo baking flours: cassava, coconut, and almond. We also use SO Delicious® Unsweetened coconutmilk as the “milk,” because I LOVE the flavor it adds. We also use coconut sugar! You’re going to love it!

So, let’s go back for a second…

What IS a Dutch baby pancake?

You would think, given the name, that this is a Dutch recipe… But it’s actually an American popover. It can also be called a German pancake, a Bismarck, or a Dutch puff. It’s thought it may have derived from the German pancake called a “Pfannkuchen.” They first surfaced in America in the early 1900’s.

Paleo Dutch Baby Recipe

Some of the characteristics of a Dutch baby are that it’s baked in the oven in a cast iron skillet, very different from traditional individual pancakes that are flipped halfway through cooking. Surprisingly, it doesn’t have any leavening agents like baking powder or baking soda like traditional pancakes do. Even without it, it rises SO much because of the eggs, typically forming a huge poof in the middle. It then deflates after coming out of the oven.

Some recipes call for fruit inside the pancake, and it’s usually served with fresh squeezed lemon juice on top. If you would like to add fruit to this recipe, every fruit I have tried works great dispersing it around the hot pan and adding the batter right on top! This Paleo Dutch baby recipe is also delicious with fresh fruit on top. Enjoy!
