A simple and impressive brunch dish, raspberry lemon dutch baby pancake is full of bright lemon zest and sweet tart raspberry preserves. This been on my cooking bucket list for sometime And thanks to Bonne Maman for inspiring me to finally cross another item off the culinary bucket list.
I love dutch baby pancakes in all it’s being. The rustic and unapologetic puffs and deflation the pancake goes through. It’s amazing what science and cooking can create. Room temperature eggs have more of a “puff” factor versus cold eggs that would not. Cooking tip to keep in mind.
From beginning to end, this eye catching dutch pancake can be on the table and devoured in just about 30 minutes, most of the time spent in the oven, leaving you to focus on brunch amenities and pouring another mimosa. Champagne and an easy brunch sounds glorious, doesn’t it? Mom would approve.
An extra scrape of lemon zest into the batter flows perfectly with the sweet raspberry jam and brightens up the dutch pancake perfectly. Once done, swirl it on top of the dutch baby straight out of the oven with a tablespoon of butter and a fresh squeeze of lemon juice at the end.
