Gingerbread Dutch Baby with Lemon Whipped Cream is an impressive breakfast treat that takes just minutes to prepare with the help of the Oster® brand Classic Series Whirlwind™ Blender.
Have you ever made a Dutch baby? It’s an oven puffed pancake that is served straight from the skillet it is baked in. The batter is blended to a light and frothy mixture and is then poured into a hot skillet coated with melted butter. Baking the Dutch baby in the oven makes it puff up impressively over the sides of the skillet.
The batter itself is not very sweet which makes a Dutch baby pancake the perfect vehicle for sweet toppings. Gingerbread is a classic flavor in the Winter and lemon and ginger pair really well together. So for my warmly spiced gingerbread Dutch baby I decided to make a quick lemon whipped cream to serve with it.
Making this impressive breakfast treat could not have been simpler thanks to Oster® and their Classic Series Whirlwind™ Blender. Both the Dutch baby batter and the whipped cream are ready in a flash. The blender does all the work. If you are looking for breakfast and brunch ideas for your holiday gatherings I’d very enthusiastically recommend this Gingerbread Dutch Baby!

Gingerbread Dutch Baby with Lemon Whipped Cream
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1 tbsp light brown sugar
- 2 tsp ground ginger
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
- 3 large eggs
- 3 tbsp unsalted butter
- 1/3 cup powdered sugar plus extra for dusting
- 1 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
- 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- pomegranate seeds to garnish optional
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
In an Oster® Classic Series Whirlwind™ Blender combine the flour, milk, brown sugar, spices and eggs. Blend until smooth.
Melt the butter in a (9 or 10 inch) cast iron skillet. Turn off heat and pour the batter into the skillet on top of the melted butter.
Bake the Dutch baby for 20 - 25 minutes until golden brown and puffed up.
Clean the blender. Now add the whipping cream, 1/3 cup of powdered sugar, lemon juice and vanilla. Blend just until peaks form in the cream, about 30 seconds.
Sprinkle the Dutch baby with powdered sugar. Top with a dollop of lemon whipped cream and pomegranate seeds. Slice and serve warm with more whipped cream at the table.
