Blackberry Dutch Baby Pancakes

These baked Oregon Blackberry Dutch Baby Pancakes are gorgeous, delicious, and dead-simple — perfect for those mornings when you just don’t have the time to stand in front of the griddle flipping pancakes. Adding juicy and sweet Oregon-grown marionberries means you don’t even need syrup, and because these berries are frozen at their peak ripeness, this treat can appear on the breakfast table all year round.

Ingredients

1 C milk
4 eggs
½ C + 1 T sugar
1 T vanilla extract
1 C flour
A pinch of salt
5 T unsalted butter
1 ½ C frozen Oregon blackberries or marionberries
Powdered sugar for dusting (optional

Preparation

Step 1
Preheat the oven to 425°F and set the rack to the middle of the oven.

Step 2
Blend the milk, eggs, sugar, flour, and vanilla until smooth. This works well with an immersion blender.

Step 3
Set a large skillet or 9”x13” metal baking pan over a burner on medium heat and melt the butter until it begins to sizzle.

Step 4
Pour the batter into the pan and sprinkle with the frozen berries. Cook for 3 minutes, moving the pan as needed to ensure even cooking.

Step 5
Move the pan to the oven and bake for 25 minutes, or until puffy and golden. The middle will take slightly longer; if the edges begin to brown too quickly, you can lay pieces of foil over the edges of the pan.

Step 6
Remove the Dutch baby from the pan by sliding a spatula under the pancake. Dust with powdered sugar if you like, then slice into wedges and serve.
