Dutch Babies Sugar-Free with Lemon Curd

These oven pancakes are also known as Dutch Babies, German Pancakes a Bismarck or a Dutch Puff. They require everyday ingredients and are ready in just 25 minutes. They are great for breakfast, brunch or even dessert.

Berries and Lemon Curd are the best combination.

The best way to eat them is with berries, jam, maple syrup, and whipped cream. I made a vegan lemon curd to go with it and it was so delicious. For the lemon curd, I used turmeric for color purpose but you can totally skip it or use food coloring. My version requires 3 eggs but you can totally replace the eggs using 1 tablespoon of vinegar along with 1 teaspoon of baking soda for each egg.

These are dairy-free, sugar-free and can be made using gluten-free flour. I used almond milk but you can use any milk. For sweetener I recommend you to use Truvia because it tastes great and won’t change the flavor. There’s a lot of different pancake syrups brands that you can use if you eat sugar-free, I personally love using pure maple syrup. For making these Dutch babies, you will need two 7” ovenproof skillets. If you are making just one Dutch baby you can use a bigger skillet.
