I don’t remember the first time I heard of Dutch baby pancakes, but I remember the first time I made one. To say it was love at first bite would be a understatement. I couldn’t get over how it puffed in the oven and the edges became airy crisp. It quickly became my favorite breakfast for a solid month. I loved that it took a few minutes to prep and I could leave it to bake while I got ready for work. Any leftovers would quickly become my lunch. My mother, who had her first Dutch baby experience the same time I did, is equally in love with this breakfast.
My mom and I are a lot alike when it comes to food. We both love trying new things and we both have a pretty hearty appetite, especially when it comes to sweets. So on days she is off from work, I will usually make a nice breakfast for us, including these single serving Dutch baby pancakes with strawberry mascarpone, which she also requested for Mother’s Day.
What I love about this recipe is the strawberry mascarpone which is like an elevated cheesecake sauce that feels like you are having a bit of a treat for dessert. To make the whipped mascarpone, I prefer to use the strawberry preserves from Bonne Maman. I love that it is real fruit preserves with simple ingredients. It has a wonderful flavor and just enough sweetness for breakfast. Bonne Maman translates to grandmother which is so fitting because my daughter and I are planning a sweet breakfast in bed for my mother – her grandmother. And these single serving Dutch baby pancakes is the star of the show.
What makes this Dutch baby pancake recipe perfect is that it makes two single serving Dutch baby pancakes. That means you can make one for breakfast in bed for mom, and one for you while you clean the kitchen before mom makes it out of bed.
The good thing is that making Dutch baby pancakes doesn’t require a lot of equipment or mess. Usually I use two small bowls, a blender, and the cast iron skillets. Easy. Peasy.
By the way, since Bonne Maman is so amazing, they are throwing a giveaway for a 12 piece Le Crueset set which would be an awesome second part to your Mother’s Day gift!
