Dutch baby is my sons favorite brunch treat and I made this one leading up to his 13th birthday. I usually make them with blueberries, but I tried something new this time with pleasing results. Since peaches are out of season at the moment, I used the canned variety, but it was really tasty! Feel free to use fresh fruit instead when they are in season.
For the batter: 4 large eggs , 2 teaspoon vanilla essence, 200ml fresh cream, 1 cup of full cream milk, 130g cake flour, half a cup of sugar, a pinch of salt, 100g butter.
For the topping: 1 can dessert peaches (or 1 cup fresh blueberries) , quarter cup of icing sugar, fresh whipped cream for serving, icing sugar for dusting.
You will need a large cast iron skillet for the best results with this recipe. But if you do-not have a cast iron skillet, you may use a Pyrex dish or oven-proof casserole. I will describe how to do this in the "tips" section below.Preheat oven to 200degreesC. Put your skillet into the oven and allow it to get nice and hot.In a large bowl combine eggs, cream, milk and vanilla. Whisk this together before adding the flour and salt. Continue to whisk the mixture until you have a smooth batter. Take the skillet out of the oven and place on the stove on medium heat and add the butter, once the butter starts to sizzle and foam, add in the batter, do-not stir. Once the batter starts to bubble around the edges of the skillet, transfer back to the oven. Bake for 15 - 20 minutes or until dutch-baby is puffy and browned around the edges.
In a sauce pan, add the icing sugar and canned peaches. Boil on medium heat until a thick syrup is achieved. Set aside.
Once your dutch-baby is ready, take out of the oven and dust with icing sugar, pour your topping over the entire dutch-baby or if you prefer you can serve it on the side , along with your fresh whipped cream!
INFO & TIPS
If using a casserole then add your butter to the casserole and put it in the hot oven. When the butter starts to sizzle and foam then add in your batter and return to the oven immediately. Bake as above.
If using fresh blueberries, then add 2tbsp of water to a saucepan, add blueberries and icing sugar and bring to a boil. Once syrup texture is achieved them take off heat , add orange zest for tartness and set aside for use as topping.
