Almond Berry Dutch Baby

Mother's Day is just around the corner, and there's not better way to treat your leading lady than with a homemade breakfast fit for a queen. Don't get me wrong, pancakes are basically a food group in my household, but I've started to turn pancake Sunday into Dutch Baby Sunday for a no-flip breakfast that looks a whole lot more decadent than my go-to stack of cakes.

With May comes both Shavuot and Mother’s Day, which are both perfect for spending time with loved ones over brunch. This year, whip up an impressive (and deceptively easy!) Almond Berry Dutch Baby. Shavuot is traditionally celebrated by eating dairy-rich foods, making this the perfect dish to celebrate with!

You might be wondering: what is a dutch baby?

A dutch baby is a baked, puffed pancake that is a hybrid between popover, pancake, and crepe. It's the perfect breakfast for a crowd that doesn't involve you flipping 'cakes all morning.
