Dutch Baby Pear Pancake! It doesn’t get much better than this.
When my grandson spends the night he asks me to make a Dutch Baby for breakfast before we even have dinner the night before. He doesn’t like me to mess with them too much, a plain old Dutch Baby is his very favorite breakfast. He does like them with bacon Maple Glazed Dutch Baby. and now we’ve added another acceptable version of Dutch Baby to our repertoire with this recipe. It’s dreamy and easy peasy, everything you could possibly want at 9 o’clock on a Saturday morning while you are watching cartoons with one of your favorite people!

Ooh this is wonderful timing. We’re coming into pear season now. I adores pears-they’re like the sweeter, milder apple!
Every time I read something about Dutch Babys….I think of my mother who adored them. She sprinkled them with lemon juice and confectioners sugar. Love the idea of using pears.
Mom also made a savory Dutch Baby at home using sausage!
Oh dear ! I’m with you all the way ! Thank you so much !
