Smoked Salmon Dutch Baby Recipe

Treat Mom to this savory Dutch baby topped with silky smoked salmon. Even better, make the batter the day before for a stress-free brunch in bed. Serves 2.


  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt and pepper, each
  • 2 Tablespoons grated Parmesan
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ cup whole milk
  • 2 Tablespoons butter, cut into pieces
  • To serve: smoked salmon, creme fraiche, arugula or other baby greens


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Whisk flour, sugar, salt, pepper and Parmesan in a bowl. (This can be made the day before and refrigerated, simply whisk gently to combine when ready to cook).
  2. Blend eggs and milk until well combined and frothy. Add the flour mixture and stir well so there are no dry patches of flour.
  3. Heat a 9-10" cast iron pan over medium-high heat. When hot, melt the butter to coat the pan. Pour the pancake batter into the pan, then transfer into the oven and bake until puffed and golden, 12-15 minutes.
  4. Remove from the oven, and layer smoked salmon, creme fraiche and arugula over the top. Serve hot.
