What is an upside-down dutch baby?

I wanted to create a dessert using fresh pears with very little work. It is one of those days where I have been super busy shopping for ingredients and scheduling my recipes for the next few weeks. So here comes upside-down pear dutch baby. The recipe is sooo easy!!

A typical dutch baby is a large German pancake made in a cast-iron skillet often topped with fruit or savoury toppings. So, this recipe is based on the same technique but with a few changes.




This recipe is made simply, and all in the same pan!

First, I briefly cooked the pears in butter, cinnamon, fresh lemon juice and a little coconut sugar. To do this, I used the same 8-inch round cake pan that I will be using to bake the dutch baby in making it for easy cleanup ๐Ÿ™‚

While the pears are softening, this takes about 3 minutes I placed all the remaining ingredients into a blender and whipped it up. As soon as the pears were ready and still hot, I poured the batter over the pears and immediately placed it in the oven to bake.

The temperature of the pears is very important for the best results! You must add the batter as soon as the pears finish cooking.

Once the upside-down dutch baby is finished baking, you flip it onto a plate. By doing this, you will showcase the beautifully caramelized pears. What I love about this dutch baby, all you taste is caramelized pears and a light and fluffy pancake-like cake. Perfection!

The best part, although I made this to be a dessert, the gluten-free upside-down pear dutch baby is perfect for brunch or a special occasion breakfast! And I always add vanilla bean ice cream. It melts right into the pears. YUM!
