Healthier Dutch Baby with Berries and Yoghurt – a delicious cross between pancakes and Yorkshire puddings a perfect option for breakfast or dessert.
Yes, this really is a thing!! and it’s totally delicious and guilt-free with my healthier version. I love these for breakfast with some fresh fruit and yoghurt and a sprinkling of icing sugar, it feels like such a treat, but really doesn’t use too many syns.
Bonus time!! – it also doesn’t use any healthy extra’s meaning you have those free to use elsewhere in your day.
Love Yorkshire Puddings? Then this sweet version is a must!!
What exactly is a Dutch Baby?
It’s a cross between a pancake, Yorkshire pudding or popover and otherwise known as a German Pancake and despite its name actually originates in the USA.
Made with a batter similar to that of a Yorkshire Pudding and cooked in a hot skillet (a vital part to ensure that batter rises).
Once cooked it creates a perfect bowl shape to fill with whatever fillings you want to enjoy.
This single-serve version, however, is cooked in a smaller skillet, meaning no temptation to overindulge and totally enjoyable on plan.
How to Make a Dutch Baby?
Most versions use a mixture of eggs, butter, flour, milk and sugar, as well as a choice of toppings.
But as we are making a healthier version. I use just egg, milk, flour, sweetener and then instead of butter a little spray oil.
It all turns out perfect and don’t feel like a healthier version at all.
Want to make this to serving more than 1 person? Just double or triple up the recipe.
How to Serve your Dutch Baby?
I went for a simple option vanilla yoghurt and fresh fruit such as blackberries, strawberries and blueberries.
All perfectly finished off with a dusting of icing sugar.
You could enjoy this as you do regular pancakes and just drizzle the whole thing with some maple syrup. Choice of fruit doesn’t need to be fresh berries, frozen berries work great also, or any fruit really.
Even a spoonful of jam is perfect with some light cream, or maybe you want to take it one step further with some melted chocolate.
