[RECIPE] Powerfoods Blueberry Dutch Baby

Powerfoods Blueberry Dutch BabyOnce upon a time, Guy Fieri featured on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives a place that specialized in the Dutch Baby. Of course, the YouTube video alludes me at the moment, but I’m determined to find it.

What is a Dutch Baby? It’s a puffed pancake and known as a German Pancake or Bismark. You either serve it with a dollop of plain yogurt or serve it as a desert with a bit of Cool Whip. This Blueberry Dutch Baby comes from the Weight Watchers Powerfoods Cookbook and is 5 PointsPlus per serving.

Powerfoods Blueberry Dutch Baby

Serves 4 | 5 PointsPlus per serving

Ingredients:

  • 2 tsp butter
  • 1 cup fat-free milk
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup egg substitute (I was out, so I cracked some eggs and used egg whites)
  • 1 tbsp canola oil
  • 1/8 tsp ground cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3/4 fresh or frozen blueberries (or whatever berries you’d like)
  • 2 tsp confectioners’ sugar
  • 1/2 cup plain fat-free Greek yogurt

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Place butter in a 9 inch oven proof skillet (like cast iron) or a glass pie plate. Place in oven and heat until the butter melts, about 2-3 minutes.
  3. Combine milk, flour, egg substitute, oil, cinnamon, and salt in a blender and process until very smooth, about 1 minute. (I did around 2 just to be safe.)
  4. Remove skillet from oven and swirl the butter until it covers the bottom and sides of the skillet. Pour in the milk mixture and sprinkle evenly with blueberries (or other fruit)
  5. Bake until the pancake is puffed and lightly browned, 25-30 minutes.
  6. Dust with confectioners’ sugar, cut into wedges and serve with yogurt. (Or Cool Whip!)

Protip: If using a stainless steel skillet without a nonstick coating, it would likely be wise to increase the butter or spritz the skillet with Pam. My Dutch Baby was superglued to my skillet. Hence, no pretty plating pictures. 🙁

Now You Try!
