We all love outdoor cooking, specially when we are camping. This is why we are here in the first place. Dutch Oven Dutch Baby is a delicious pan cake style dessert that I prefer to make as a breakfast to kick-start my day. Let’s get straight to the recipe.
Dutch Oven Dutch Baby
- 1/2 cup 1 cube butter
- 9 eggs
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 1 tablespoon vanilla
- zest from one lemon
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 4 cups berries
- powdered sugar
- lemon if desired
Using a 12 inch (8 quart) dutch oven, prepare 24 charcoals.
In a large bowl, combine the eggs, milk, vanilla, and lemon zest (this can be done ahead of time). When you're ready to cook, add the flour and salt and whisk together until well blended.
When the coals are nice and hot, place 8 coals directly under the dutch oven. Add the cube of butter and allow to melt. Once melted, add the batter to the pot, cover, and add remaining 16 coals to the lid.
Rotate the lid 1/4 turn every 5 minutes and allow the dutch baby to cook until set, about 25 minutes. It should puff up all the way to the lid and once the lid is removed it will fall. Remove from heat.
Cover with berries, powdered sugar, and a squeeze of lemon. Replace lid and allow the berries to warm before serving. Cut into 6 slices and enjoy!
