Dutch Baby Pancakes, also known as German or Puff pancakes, are like a combination of a crepe, a pancake, and a popover.
In a blender, combine eggs, milk, flour, sugar, and vanilla. Mix until all ingredients are incorporated. Let the batter rest as you preheat the oven and heat up the skillet.
Add butter to a 9-inch or 10-inch oven-safe skillet and place the skillet in the cold oven. Preheat the oven to 425°F.
Once the oven has reached 425°F, carefully remove the hot skillet from the oven. Pour the batter into the skillet and place it back into the oven.
Bake for 20 minutes.
Serve warm, dusted with confectioners' sugar.
Optional toppings: syrup, fresh fruit, cinnamon, sugar, peanut butter, jams, etc.
