This dutch baby pancake is excellent for a Sunday brunch. Serve it warm with fresh fruit and maple syrup on top!


  • 3 eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 cup almond milk, at room temperature (240 ml)
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour (120 g)
  • 1 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 2 tbsp melted coconut oil


  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F (220 C). 
  2. Add the coconut oil to an 8-inch skillet pan and place it inside the oven until it has achieved the desired temperature.
  3. Then, add the eggs to a mixing bowl and whisk them. 
  4. Add the milk, salt, and vanilla extract and whisk again.
  5. Sift the flour to the mixing bowl and stir to combine.
  6. Carefully remove the skillet pan from the oven. Use some oven mitts so you don’t get burned.
  7. Swirl the pan to coat the bottom and sides of the pan with coconut oil. Again, do it very carefully and with the help of some oven mitts.
  8. Pour the batter into the pan and place the skillet back in the oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes. 
  9. Finally, remove the skillet pan from the oven. Top the pancake with some fresh fruits, drizzle some maple syrup on top, and serve while still warm.


Use at room temperature eggs: It is crucial to use at room temperature eggs when baking. You will achieve a lighter texture.

Don’t open the oven to peek inside: We all know that it’s hard not to look inside the oven. But please don’t do it. Otherwise, your pancake won’t rise and cook properly.

Don’t wait too long to eat your pancake: This pancake is best and creamier when served warm.

Make sure you use an 8-inch skillet pan: The batter in this recipe is the perfect fit for an 8-inch sized pan. If you don’t have a cast-iron pan, you can use any oven-safe pan.
