Eggnog Dutch Baby Pancake with Cranberry Compote
Hello guys!! I wanted to catch you before you headed out of town or get ready for the long Thanksgiving weekend. This eggnog dutch baby is a great brunch recipe as folks gather this weekend. It feeds a crowd and very easy to pull together.
Do you love eggnog?? I have a love-hate relationship with eggnog and every year it comes around I avoid drinking it and instead infuse it into delicious baked treats. Whether it’s in these eggnog cupcakes with bourbon whipped buttercream or this eggnog pudding cake, I love baking with it. This year, I will be serving up this eggnog dutch baby pancake with cranberry compote for brunch.
Have you ever had dutch baby pancake? If not, they are a crossover of crepes, a popover and a pancake all in one. I started making them last year after they became a thing on Pinterest and Mr J is now in love with them. Every other weekend we make one on a lazy Sunday. I love the simplicity of this puffy pancake and how easy it is to make different kinds of flavors.
This eggnog dutch baby was perfect with the change in season and especially when you top it with a sweet cranberry compote. The pancake batter itself is thin, perfectly spiced and infused with eggnog. Once baked in a hot casserole dish (or cast iron skillet), the pancake puffs up and becomes a pillowy soft haven. Feel free to top with anything you have around. Fruit compotes are my favorite but just a dusting of powdered sugar will do.
I hope you get to try this pancake this long holiday weekend. To my american friends, Happy Thanksgiving. Have a safe and wonderful holiday.
