Strawberry and Blueberry Almond Dutch Baby

We’ve become a pancake every weekend family and I’m not even sorry about it.

This is a huge step for me as a recovering pancake-flip-phobic individual. However, they do say that the best and only way to truly get over an irrational fear is by unapologetic exposure therapy.

So, there you go.

Alternatively, there’s also just pure avoidance and while most of the pancakes we make have me standing in front of the griddle facing my flip fears over and over (and over x 16), there are days when I’m just not up to the task.

And on these occasions, we Dutch baby.

I don’t know who invented this glorious no-flip, oven-baked, crispy on the outside, custardy on the inside pancake, but whoever you are – THANK YOU.

You have saved my Sunday mojo many a time. And then some.

You have also broken my daughter’s pancake-boycott streak (seriously, WHO IS SHE?!). And for that I am also quite grateful.

This particular Dutch baby is especially delicious, as it is positively overloaded with berries and then topped with toasted sliced almonds that add both crunch and great flavor.

It is my position that it is sweet enough to not need any added toppings, but you can always serve it topped with powdered sugar or maple syrup for added decadence if you so desire.
