Mini Dutch Baby Pancakes

These Mini Dutch Baby Pancakes are easy pancake cups you can fill with your choice of fruit or other toppings!


  • 1 cup fat free milk
  • 1 cup flour, I used white whole wheat flour but all-purpose flour is fine
  • 6 eggs
  • ¼ cup butter, melted
  • dash of salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest, lemon zest would also work


  • Preheat the oven to 400. Coat 24 cups in a standard muffin tin with cooking spray.
  • Combine all ingredients in a blender. Blend until completely smooth and combined. Pour the batter evenly into the prepared muffin tin cups. Cups will be a little less than half full.
  • Bake in the oven for 13-15 minutes until puffy and golden*. Pancakes will settle into cups when removed from the oven. Fill with your favorite toppings and serve!
  • * These will puff up in the oven in a manner similar to popovers and then settle when removed from the oven. Don’t be alarmed if you take a peek when they’re baking and they seem over-expanded.
