Blueberry Dutch Baby is like a buttery, tender and slightly sweet pancake. There isn’t any flipping or dripping and cleanup is a breeze.
I’d never had a “Dutch Baby Pancake” before so when this month’s host Mayuri of Mayuri’s Jikoni announced that the theme for this month’s BreadBakers was Pancakes from different parts of the world I thought this was the perfect time to give this Blueberry Dutch Baby recipe a try.
I saw this recipe in the Food and Wine July 2015 magazine, and it’s been waiting in the wings of my “must make” file. Most pancakes are slathered in syrup and butter. In my case, I think that’s because they can be dry and somewhat flavorless. That’s not the case with this Blueberry Dutch Baby.
This Blueberry Dutch Baby was tender and buttery. The blueberries and lightly sprinkled powdered sugar gave it the perfect amount of sweetness. The syrup was on stand-by but neither John nor I thought it was necessary. The light powdered sugar was enough.
Another thing that I really liked about this Blueberry Dutch Baby is that you mix all of your ingredients together and just pour them into your skillet and bake. There isn’t any flipping or dripping and everyone gets to enjoy a hot breakfast all at the same time and clean up is a breeze.
Don’t have time to make this now? Pin it for later!

- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour I use unbleached
- 1/2 cup whole milk
- 1/4 cup pomegranate juice I used cranberry-pomegranate
- 3 large eggs room temperature
- 6 tbsp unsalted butter
- 1 cup blueberries
- 1/4 tsp kosher salt
- Powdered sugar for dusting
Preheat oven to 425°F.
In a medium-sized bowl, whisk the flour, milk, juice, and eggs together until blended.
Melt the butter in a 12" skillet over high heat until foamy. I used a cast iron skillet but use what you have.
Pour batter into the skillet and sprinkle on the blueberries.
Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown. It will puff up while baking but flattens shortly after removal from the oven.
Dust with powdered sugar and serve immediately

I’ll definitely be making this recipe again and will probably be adding the other Bread Bakers recipes to my “must make” file too.
