  • 3 eggs whisked, room temperature
  • ½ cup flour gluten-free 1-to-1
  • ½ cup almond milk room temperature.
  • 1 Tbsp. sugar
  • Pinch of cinnamon
  • ½ tsp. vanilla
  • 2 Tbsp. coconut oil
  • Fresh berries optional
  • Powdered sugar optional
  • Lemon juice, optional


  1. Let eggs and milk sit at room temperature for at least 30 minutes before preparing batter.
  2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  3. In a medium-sized bowl whisk the room temperature eggs.
  4. Add flour, milk, sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla to the bowl. Mix by hand until just combined. It is OK if there are still a few clumps.
  5. Place coconut oil in an 8-9-inch cast iron skillet and heat up in the oven until the oil has just melted, about 1-2 minutes.
  6. Pour batter into skillet and bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes. Reduce heat to 300 degrees, without removing the pan, and continue cooking for 5 minutes.
  7. Top Dutch Baby pancake with fresh berries, powdered sugar, and a squeeze of lemon juice. Serve immediately and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

  • Nutrition facts are calculated without any additional toppings.
  • Other toppings you can try include: maple syrup, honey, Nutella, peanut butter, cinnamon apples, or coconut whipped cream.

Meal Prep and Storage

  • To Prep Ahead: You can prep the toppings by slicing the fruit or making whipped cream the day before if needed.
  • To Store: If you have leftovers, keep them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 to 5 days. For the best results, do not store the toppings on the pancake.
  • To Freeze: Again, freeze these pancakes without toppings. They should last in a freezer safe bag or container for up to 1 to 2 months.
  • To Reheat: These warm up beautifully in a skillet on the stove over medium heat or in the oven at 300°F. You can use a microwave, but they might get soggy.
