A dutch baby is a German pancake that is baked in a skillet. As it bakes, it puffs up and is ready for fruit. I’ve made an apple dutch baby here and a sausage dutch baby here with all purpose flour, but they could easily be adapted with grain free flours. I’ll come back and do that in another post.
I used two grain-free flours in this grain-free dutch baby recipe, almond flour and coconut flour to get the taste I was looking for. If you follow me on instagram I told you that I was going to test and retest this recipe until I got a recipe worthy of sharing.
I kept my word. In total, I made four versions of my grain free dutch baby, until it tasted remarkable and had a puffy texture that wasn’t eggy.
Testing the Grain Free Dutch Baby Over and Over
This is how Spinach Tiger works when it comes to foundational recipes. I knew if I could get a good basic recipe, I would be able to go many ways with this, including some savory options that I will show you in the future.
I made four different variations of almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda vs. baking powder, sour cream vs. plant based milk and on the 5th version, I got exactly what I was looking for. In some versions, the almond flour dominated too much and in some cases, it was too eggy. I think my version is just right.
The 5th recipe: 1/3 cup almond flour, 1 tablespoon coconut flour, 3 extra large eggs, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1/2 cup sour cream and we loved it. To this I added both orange and vanilla extract which didn’t overpower but balanced out the almond flour.
How to Sweeten a Grain Free Dutch Baby
As far as a sweetener and confectioner’s sugar, I used powdered erythritol (Swerve). You can use stevia, or skip this and just top with fresh berries.
How to Make a Grain Free Dutch Baby Dairy Free
As far as a dairy free version, you can substitute sour cream with a nut milk and use coconut oil instead of butter.
You will probably also love my keto pancakes.
Just so you know, these can also be baked in the oven and everyone who has tried them has been very happy.
