Gingerbread Dutch Baby Recipe | Buttered Side Up
It's Christmas week! 

I can't believe December has rushed along so quickly. I feel like I haven't eaten nearly enough festive food or listened to enough Christmas carols.

Also, I have some last-minute shopping to do. How about you?

Gingerbread Dutch Baby Recipe | Buttered Side Up

This Gingerbread Dutch Baby is absolutely divine. The spices aren't overwhelming, but more than subtle.

Helen and I absolutely adored it. We ate it all between the two of us (with breaks). I groaned as I took bite after bite. Nom.

This would be perfect for an easy Christmas morning breakfast!

25 mins Serves 2


  • 2 large eggs,
  • 1 tablespoon organic light brown sugar,
  • 1 teaspoon organic, unsulfured, blackstrap molasses,
  • 1/3 cup organic all-purpose flour,
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
  • pinch of cloves
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon unrefined salt
  • 1/3 cup whole milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • extra butter + confectioner's sugar, for serving


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (205 C).

Place eggs in blender and blend until pale. Add sugar, molasses, flour, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, nutmeg, salt, and milk and blend until smooth.

In a 9-10-inch skillet, melt the butter. Swirl it up the sides of the pan. Pour in the batter. Bake for 15-20 minutes, checking at the 12-minute mark.

Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve with extra butter. A dollop of whipped cream would make this even more amazing...
