Buttermilk Skillet Pancakes

buttermilk dutch babies 5

Pancakes are, you could say, my culinary Achilles heel. They always turn out awful. Too undercooked, burnt, too gooey, too chewy, not fluffy enough, whatever. I hate making pancakes. I’ve yet to find a recipe that gave me the perfect results I want so usually when I crave pancakes it means we’re going out. Why eat mediocre pancakes at home when the world is full of diners?

However, thanks to the power of suggestion and certain websites, I learned about skillet pancakes, also known as “Dutch babies” or “German pancakes.” Essentially these are pancakes that you cook in a skillet and slice like pizza. No muss pancakes AND another recipe to add to my ode to skillet collection, PLUS a good way to use up the rest of my buttermilk? Sold! I searched around a bit and finally settled on this recipe and I have to say, these were fantastic. Not only were they delicious (topped with strawberries and honey hallelujah Spring is here), they heated up in the toaster oven for days to come, making breakfast (my least favorite weekday meal to worry about) a piece of (pan)cake.

    I hear yah! I spent most of last Sunday testing out pancake recipes and technique, and I think I MAY have gotten one “good” pancake out of dozens. Weird, because I can make a mean crepe. I’ll have to try this next weekend, thanks!

    I made this and it became this big blob in the skillet. It almost overflowed :-( what did I do wrong?

      Lisette, I’m so sorry! Did you vary the recipe at all?

        Only thing I did differently was use regular flour. I’m going to do it again but wish it came out as pretty as yours lol!

    How big is your skillet? I wonder if that’s my issue

      I used a 12″ pan for these, which might explain it? I don’t think using ap flour instead of rye would make a difference…
