Well according to Wikipedia, a dutch baby actually isn’t dutch at all. It may be a rendition of the traditional German pancake but it actually has its origins in the United States. Well whaddaya know.

So what is it exactly? A dutch baby is a thin pancake that is like a crossover between a popover and a crepe. It is baked in a cast iron skillet and pretty mild in taste so it’s usually topped with fresh fruit and a glaze or sauce.

Dutch babies are so flexible that you could do any combination of fruit and sauce and it’ll taste good. Blackberries and whipped cream? Bananas and peanut butter? Chocolate chips and caramel sauce? Let your creativity fly!

About This Raspberry Chocolate Dutch Baby

This dutch baby is comprised of real vanilla bean, fresh raspberries and a dark chocolate drizzle. The vanilla bean is in the batter so when it is baked, a delicious warm scent wafts through the kitchen.

The batter is like a thick crepe so it’s soft with just a bit of bite and it was the perfect vehicle for the classic combo of raspberry and chocolate.

To make it even more decadent you could add a dusting of powdered sugar or a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top!

  1. I applaud you for opening up with this personal story!! You had touched on this topic at times in comments you’ve left on my blog, but never in detail. I can completely understand your walls and fear of being vulnerable. I am almost at the one year mark since my split with my last boyfriend and I still struggle at times. It’s bizarre really. I still have no desire to be in a relationship, and perhaps that’s a good thing. It’s in these times we really discover who we are. There is nothing wrong with being vulnerable though, and I think it’s great you let your walls down even if just for a moment. People are going to do things we don’t always understand, it’s part of life. How we react to them is what makes us strong. You will find that special person, but probably when you least expect it!! Don’t forever hold your walls high though, life is too short!

    Until then, keep making delicious treats and discovering who you are as an individual!

    1. Thanks Britt! I hesitated posting this because I didn’t want everyone knowing this story bout me. I was also afraid about what my peers will think of me.

      When I revisited your blog today to read the post about you and your ex, it gave me the courage to finally post my own story.

      I completely agree with that you said. I’m glad I had these crucial molding and exploration years all to myself. Because I was single, I was able to grow as an individual and become me in my truest form. I had all the time to myself to do the things that are important to me like discover and pursue dietetics and work on this blog of mine.

      Thanks for your support and encouragement, you’re one of the most mentally and emotionally strong people I know! So glad to have you around in my little blogisphere 🙂

  2. GIRL! You poor thing. I have had my fair of AWFUL relationship experiences (I have been stood up by at least 4 different guys, I’ve been the girl guys go to when they have no one else, I dated a guy for 4 years and he cheated multiple times and ended up leaving me for someone else….but then consistently calling me and telling me we were gonna get back together. MIIIIND GAAAAAMES)! But, even through all of that, I never built up walls. I always dove headfirst into new relationships. Was I a little too trusting? Probably. But did I also find the perfect guy who told me he loved me after 2 days and did I go with it and are we now engaged (almost 5 years later)? YES! Your friend was right–you can’t let those horrible guys win by prolonging your upsetness. Being vulnerable-while scary-is important! And if you just hide yourself away and never let yourself try or love again….what’s the point? Eventually the pain of that will catch up to you and that will be it’s own brand of horrible, because you’ll realize that you didn’t have to be alone. You COULD have been happy. There are no guarantees. You might have to find some more duds and get hurt more along the way. But, when you are finally in a good relationship with the RIGHT guy who would never ever just walk out on you….it will be worth it!

    1. oh my gosh!! that sounds terrible!! but im so impressed that you didn’t give up on love even after all those awful experiences. if you did, you never would’ve met your fiance! oh i didn’t even know you got engaged, belated congratulations!!! btw that story about how he said “i love you” 2 days in, SO CUTE 🙂

      i wish i could be more like you, but i’ve always lived on the more cautious side of life. maybe one day when i meet someone who’s trustworthy..

      1. lol thank you!

        I completely understand-in every other way I’m extremely cautious too. But I’m a hopeless romantic-I feel like love is worth all the risks 😛

        You’ll get there! You def. don’t need to rush yourself, though. If it’s right and you’re open to it…it’ll just happen 🙂
