If you’re looking for a sweet brunch dish to feed a crowd, look no further than this recipe! A Dutch Baby pancake is basically a large popover that’s baked in a cast-iron pan in the oven (versus on the stovetop) until it puffs up into a golden halo. Traditionally, it’s enjoyed warm right out of the oven, with fruit or jam and a dusting of powdered sugar. In our version, the thin pancake batter is poured onto a preheated and buttered sheet pan, which makes for a quick bake time and easy serving. Feel free to use any type of milk in the recipe, or to swap in a different fruit for peaches, if you wish.
