Baby Dutch Babies

Breakfast, Summer


Baby Dutch Babies

Yesterday I threw a little paella party for Anthropologie (more to come soon!) and after as we were cleaning up, doing a million dishes, we realized we hadn’t seen Amelia in a very long time…maybe an hour?

So we started calling her name, we figured maybe she was napping in a strange place. No Amelia. We started going room by room, looking under sheets, looking under beds and again, no Amelia. I went in the lil’ backyard and no Amelia.

At this point I started to freak out. I ran through the house like a total psycho and screamed her name and still NOTHING.

My brain immediately went to the worst places, like how long as she been walking around the neighborhood, has she walked two streets down to the insanely BUSY street? UGH. I went in the middle of the street and screamed her name at the top of my lungs. I jumped in my car and started driving around. Billy and his boyfriend Steve ran around too, looking for Amelia.

I was in the car, crying, makeup coming down my face. And then finally I get a call from Billy. Amelia was at the back door, she finally decided to come out from hiding.

I WANTED TO KILL HER but then I just hugged her and gave her a slice of prosciutto.

I’m so glad she isn’t missing, I’m so glad I can squeeze her tight, my devilish little corgi angel.

Since I sorta worked this past weekend and had the most stressful 15 minutes ever, I plan on making myself these baby dutch babies this weekend.

This recipe is super simple and can easily be put in a 12-inch cast iron but I like to make baby things of things because I like things to be cute. You know dis.

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes
Serving Size: 4 (dutch babies)


  • 3 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, cubed
  • Berries, for serving
  • Powdered sugar, for dusting


  • Preheat the oven for 2 to 3 minute to 400 F. Place four 4-inch cast-iron skillets in the oven to preheat. Alternatively this recipe works for a 10-inch or 12-inch cast iron skillet, so if you’re using that, put that in the oven. Oh and heads up, I found it easier to put the cast iron skillets on a baking sheet so they can easily come in and out of the oven.
  • In a blender, add the eggs, milk, sugar and vanilla extract; blend until combined. Add the flour and salt and pulse once more.
  • Open the oven and add a tablespoon to each of the mini cast iron skillets or all of it to a big cast iron. Swirl is around so it goes up the sides (you'll definitely need a good oven mitt for this). Divide the batter amongst the mini cast iron skillets OR just pour the entire batter into the large cast iron. Close the oven door and bake for 20 to 25 minutes for the small ones and 30 minutes for the big one. Remove from the oven and serve immediately. Dust with lots of powdered sugar and berries.

    Oh man, I was feeling anxious just reading about your experience. How scary! I am so glad she was safe and sound. These Dutch babies are definitely a good reward for getting through that. I never made them mini before, but it is a great idea because I sometimes (okay always) end up eating half the Dutch baby on my own. Built in portion control is always nice.

    First of all, these Dutch babies ARE the cutest! Secondly, omg! I’m so glad Amelia is safe and sound. I had a terrifying moment like that a few years ago when my cat cage BROKE (like top half snapped from bottom half) on the way to the vet. My understandably freaked out cat fell to the ground and literally sprinted like hell. Thankfully, he ran in the right direction and we were able to corner in him against our apartment building. I was crying hysterically the whole time. UGH, the worst!

    I am slightly confused, does the butter go in the pan to grease it or in the batter? I am not seeing it? Dying to make these for dinner today!

      Just revised the recipe, sorry about that! It’s added to the cast iron skillet (s) before the batter is added. 🙂

  • Reply Amy Squyres August 1, 2016 at 1:26 pm

    How is the butter incorporated in this recipe?

    • Reply Adrianna Adarme August 1, 2016 at 3:25 pm

      Ahhh! Sorry about that. Just fixed it. It’s added to the cast iron skillet and then swirled around. It gives it some nice flavor and makes sure it doesn’t stick!

    I have been in your shoes before, running around my house screaming for my Sam. Meanwhile, he is watching me! Happy your girl is safe!

    Anyone ever tried to make this with almond milk??

  • Reply fromscratchceramics August 1, 2016 at 11:10 am

    How nerve racking! I’m glad you found your pup:) also the Dutch baby looks wonderful I will have to give this recipe a try, once I get a skillet.

    I’ve always wanted to try a dutch baby, but need to get a cast iron skillet first. And I’m so glad you found Amelia….that sounds terrifying! : (

      Madeline, I have always made mine in glass (Pyrex to be exact) pie dishes or even the rectangle glass baking (again, Pyrex) dishes. They puff up every time!

      • Reply Adrianna Adarme August 1, 2016 at 11:36 am

        This is very true. They work great in pie dishes, ceramic dishes, etc.

      Thanks Madeline. xox

    These look inredible! I have never had them before so no idea what they taste like but will definitely be giving them a go 🙂
