It’s Saturday morning, snow is falling gently from the sky and your plaid flannel sheets are delightfully warm and cozy. If you are going to get up today that feeling needs to continue. Eventually you throw on an oversize sweater with leggings and your favorite fuzzy slippers and head downstairs. What can you whip up that’s easy, delicious and pleases everyone? Chai Spiced Dutch Baby Pancake should do the trick.
Throw everything in the blender, pour it into a cast iron skillet and voila! Enjoy with a cup of tea and a good book. Bonus points if you’re sitting by a fire!
In an effort to change it up I decided to make some comfort food in the form of a dutch baby pancake. How have I made it this many years without eating this? The first one we ate was dotted with fruit and cinnamon which was amazing. Immediately afterwards I started brainstorming all the different flavors and combinations that would make a delicious dutch baby.
The Chai Spiced Dutch Baby Pancake recipe here is what I decided on. I wanted something that was a little off the beaten path and I didn’t see anything else like it floating around the internet. This lovely little concoction reminds me a lot of a large crepe. The best part is that it’s so easy to make! If you don’t have a cast iron skillet you can make it in a pie pan or a glass baking pan.
Chase the winter doldrums away with some hot tea and comfort food this weekend. I will definitely be making dutch baby pancakes a lot more often in the future!
