What is a Dutch baby? 

A Dutch baby (a.k.a. German pancake or Dutch puff) is a pan-sized puffed up version of a breakfast pancake.   It is typically made with eggs, flour, milk, sugar, vanilla and cinnamon then topped with powdered sugar and/or fruits.  Some places may offer both German pancakes (large pan size) and Dutch babies (smaller pan size).

Where can I get it?  Dutch babies can most often be found at European/American breakfast spots like these…
