Strawberry and Blueberry Dutch Baby

If you've never made a Dutch baby before, now is the time to try one! I actually had not had one of these in years but I saw a delicious looking recipe on Pinterest for a blueberry one that I had to try. Well, they're fabulous!! A Dutch baby is sort of like a puffed-up crepe (I remember the recipe in my Betty Crocker kid's cookbook called it a Big Puffy Pancake). It can be served plain but I think the addition of fruit really makes it something special. I initially tried the recipe with just strawberries, which was wonderful, but I added blueberries as a nod to the Fourth of July. Next time, I think I'm going to try it with peaches- although blackberries, apples, or pears sound yummy too.
I liked this recipe because it's much easier and lower maintenance that regular pancakes- just pour the batter into your skillet and pop it into the oven, and you're done. This would be a perfect breakfast or brunch dish for guests. All you really need is some bacon and additional fruit and you're good to go.
