Can we just take a moment to fall in love with this Lemon Raspberry Dutch Baby Pancake? It’s got everything you could want in a brunch dish. It’s simple to make, smells heavenly, and tastes really, darn, splendidly, super good too.
If you’ve been my bestie for a while, you’ll know that I love rustic dishes. There’s just something charming about their simplicity. And this Lemon Raspberry Dutch Baby is a perfect example of simple rustic charm. I love that it looks great in a cast-iron pan. I love that the edge grows (and overflows!) in whatever direction it wants without even a hint of apology. I love love LOVE that you can dress it up any way you want, and each time you’ll get something that looks unique, and tastes fantastic.
Lemon Raspberry Dutch Baby Pancake VS Regular Pancakes
So, what’s the difference between this Lemon Raspberry Dutch Baby, and “regular” pancakes such as these Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes, or my Fluffy, Fluffy Pancakes recipe?
Well, in my previous Dutch Baby Pancake recipe post, I talked about how Dutch Babies have a greater ratio of eggs to flour when compared to your traditional pancake, resulting in a more custard-y final product. But that’s not all! Dutch Baby Pancakes are quicker, easier, and less messy to prepare. Score!
Dutch Baby Recipe Video (Because, guess who finally made a recipe video!)
Oh, wait! I totally forgot to tell you. I finally made a recipe video (okay, fine…I just told you in the header). It’s not brilliant, and it’s nowhere near where I ultimately want my videos to be, but I figured that if I don’t start making and sharing videos now, I never will. And that would be a shame, because videos can be quite beautiful and so very expressive in an entirely different way from words and photos.

Lemon Raspberry Dutch Baby Pancake
- Total Time: 1 hour
- Yield: Serves 2
This Lemon Raspberry Dutch Baby Pancake recipe is one you’re going to fall in love with. A crisp edge, custard-y centre, with tangy lemon curd, and fresh raspberries – it’s everything you could want in a brunch dish. It’s simple to make, smells heavenly, and tastes really, darn, splendidly, super good too!
- 3 Large Eggs, room temperature
- ⅔ cup milk, room temperature
- ½ cup All Purpose Flour
- 1 tbsp Lemon Zest
- ¼ tsp Vanilla Extract
- 2 tbsp White Sugar
- A pinch of Salt
- 3 tbsp Unsalted Butter
- Lemon Curd (to taste!)
- ⅓ cup Fresh Raspberries
- Icing Sugar, for dusting
- Blend together eggs, milk, flour, lemon zest, sugar, salt, and vanilla extract.
- Let blended batter rest 15-25 minutes.
- Melt butter in a hot non-stick baking-ready dish (I used a cast-iron pan). Pour batter into the centre of the dish, give it a gentle swirl to help it spread evenly, and place in oven.
- Bake at 425 degrees F for 20-25 minutes. 25 minutes will result in slightly browned edges for a bit more crunch, just the way I like it!
- Smear on lemon curd, garnish with raspberries and dust with icing sugar.
Pro Tip: Put your cast-iron pan (or ovenproof baking dish) in the oven while it’s warming up. That way your pan is hot and ready for when you melt the butter and pour in the batter.
Pro Tip 2: Room temperature ingredients are a must if you want your Dutch Baby to rise. (It will however deflate to some extent as it cools.)

Oh my goodness. You’ve managed to combine a bunch of my favourite things into one: breakfast, dutch babies, lemon curd, and raspberries. This looks so perfect for a lazy Sunday, but I love how it still turns out so elegantly without a whole lot of hassle! Definitely gonna have to try this 🙂
Thanks Faith! We share a bunch favorite things! Hope you enjoy this one!

Here’s a showstopper dish for Easter Brunch! It’s perfect with the lemon curd. Love the time lapse video of it baking in the oven!!
Hi Elaine! I hadn’t even thought of having this for Easter Brunch! What a great idea to serve Dutch Baby Pancake, it’s just a little different from the usual ideas, but not so crazy than anyone would question your inner daredevil!
I support pancakes in every iteration, from the crepe to fluffy pancake to dutch baby. Heck even clafoutis is really just a super egg-y dessert-y pancake. Add in lemon and raspberry (a wonderful and underappreciated pairing) and I’m all kinds of happy. Thanks for sharing this Riz!
LOL! I agree 100%. Pancakes in every iteration must be preserved and cherished. (Funnily enough, I almost made clafoutis this weekend.) Lemon & Raspberry is definitely one of my favourite pairings, I’ve revisited it in a few different recipes here! Hope you had a good weekend, Sean!
Oh yes! I’m totally in love with this for spring brunches! Lemon and raspberry is such an awesome spring combo!
Thanks Leanne! I agree, spring brunches have a lovely springy-ness to them! All about it!
I always love a recipe that’s a breakfast and dessert combination. I think this would even make a fine candidate for brinner tonight.
Thanks for sharing Riz. Happy Thursday!
Hahaha….brinner is one of my favourite meals! Happy Friday!
Hi! I made this over the weekend for my mum and my in-laws, it went down a right treat!! Thanks!
Hey Georgina, that’s lovely to hear! Glad you all enjoyed it!
Made it. Loved it. all your recipes are great!
Hey Mike! Thanks so much! Feel free to post a photo of your version on instagram, I’d love to see it!
The recipe and video are terrific!! I like the way you don’t have loud audio on the video….!
Thanks Anecia! I’m glad you enjoy the video…there are more to come! (But I’m still super uncomfortable making videos…so there’s more to come…in time….slowly! lol!)
The video looks brilliant! Well done! 💪🏼👏🏼👌🏻
Hello! Thank you so much!!
What size pan did you use?
Hi Alicia, I used a smaller cast iron pan for this one…I think it was 6 or 7-inches.
Great recipe. I tried it and my husband liked it too. Thanks a lot
In addition, sometimes I take recipes here
