Welcome to the second annual brunch week hosted by Terri of Love and Confections and Susan of The Girl In The Little Red Kitchen!  Join us May 5th through 10th while we celebrate the deliciousness of brunch and to prepare for Mother’s Day and summer brunching season.  We have 32 bloggers bringing you their best brunch game, from cocktails to eggs benedict to donuts, there is something for everyone this week.  Our amazing sponsors have donated some great prizes for a gigantic giveaway, please visit this post for more information and to enter the giveaway. 


Ah brunch, it’s a cultural institution in New York City.  One whiff of warm air and the restaurants open the doors, windows and set up sidewalk tables ready for the onslaught of customers clamoring to dine al fresco.  A bloody mary here, a side of bacon there and then the difficult decision of eggs or pancakes? If you’re lucky you are brunching on Saturday and can go for the other option tomorrow. 

We love brunch and the long lines at the most popular restaurants will prove that fact.  However why should you drop $20 on a plate of eggs benedict when you can make it at home for a fraction of the price?  

Oh yes the camaraderie of friends.  Well I’d rather have my friends over and know my eggs will be cooked to my liking!

Lucky for you by the end of this week, that desire to wait on an hour long line for french toast will have disappeared because with 33 bloggers and 6 days of recipes there is absolutely something you won’t be able to resist.

Dutch baby pancakes have been one of those things that I’ve wanted to make for a long time and was always side tracked by our normal weekend brunch making routine at home.  

In simple terms to describe a dutch baby – it’s a giant popover cooked in a cast iron skillet. 

The possibilities are endless with these babies, the pancake itself is eggy but otherwise neutral tasting and a base for all the toppings.  Not wanting to simply top this with fresh fruit and syrup, I roasted sweet strawberries until the juice was thick and syrup but the strawberries still held their shape. 

I can see this topped with roasted peaches in July, apples in the fall and pumpkin in the batter come November!

Dutch Baby Prep

Did I mentioned start to finish it takes about 30 minutes? Yeah and less mess than traditional pancakes since these babies are cooked and served in the same pan.  

I used my OXO egg beater quickly whisk up the batter and make sure it was well combined and then it gets poured into a screaming hot and buttered cast iron pan. 

Make a giant one and serve it with an assortment of brunch dishes or individual ones in some miniature skillets. 

Dutch Baby with Roasted Strawberries
Save Recipe


    For the roasted strawberries:
  • 1 pint fresh strawberries, hulled and halved
  • 1/2 tablespoon granulated white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
  • For the dutch baby
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, divided
  • 2 large eggs

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla bean paste


  1. Heat your oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and toss the strawberries with the sugar and vanilla bean paste. Roast for 25-30 minutes or until their juices are released and syrupy.
  3. Place 2 4inch cast iron skillets or 1 10-inch skillet in your heated oven for 10 minutes.
  4. Very carefully place 1/2 tablespoon of butter in each skillet and place back in the oven to melt - about 30 seconds to 1 minute.
  5. Remove the skillets and divide the batter evenly amongst the skillets.
  6. Bake for 15 minutes or until the dutch baby is puffed up and brown around the edges.
  7. Let the skillets cool slightly before serving with the roasted strawberries on top and a dusting of powdered sugar.
  8. Serves 2 or 4 in a larger skillet.

    This looks so good, I’ve tried last summer to make something very similar to this and it was kind if a disaster, will try yours, love the addition of the roasted strawberries.

    Strawberries are my favorites. This looks so good.
    I’ve tried this recipe before a couple of times, but yours looks a lot better than mine.

    I wish I could be a better cook 🙂

    Susan, that’s the most beautiful golden dutch baby I’ve ever seen! It’s magnificent! I LOVE brunch so much but I abhor waiting in line ups. Every time I visit my best friend in Seattle, we go for brunch and we wait at least an hour every time. People are serious about breakfast, yo. The roasted strawberries look amazing. This is a fabulous first entry for brunch week!
