Einkorn Blueberry Dutch Baby – Cast Iron Skillet Recipe
This Einkorn Blueberry Dutch Baby recipe is a family-favorite gem! A Dutch baby seems intimidating at first glance, but with some practice this recipe is easy as pie!
This recipe will help save you time, as it is not a strenuous as traditional pancakes. There’s not continual monitoring of pancakes for flipping. Once your Dutch baby has cooked, then you just simply remove it from the oven and serve.
This recipe is also great for busy mothers and fathers who need to feed multiple children quickly!
Einkorn flour is an ancient grain notable for it’s digestive properties. It is not a heavy grain, and it’s texture is fantastic. It’s my favorite wheat, ancient grain flour to use for baking!
I have family members who have gluten sensitivities. We’ve discovered that using grains such as einkorn don’t seem to upset their stomach as much as using traditional modern flours. This is why we use a lot of flours such as einkorn, spelt, and even rye. However, when seeking health advice, please talk to the medical professional of your choice.
Fiscally speaking, the most affordable way for frequent bakers to use einkorn is to buy it in bulk. A fifty pound bag will cost about $2.00 a lb, while a 2lb bag will cost about $10.00 a pound! However, you won’t be saving any money if you don’t end up using it, so plan accordingly.
Einkorn’s texture is great for making crepes as well! Check out this recipe I made for Sweet Einkorn Crepes.
If you’re a visual learner, I strongly recommend this video from Off-Grid with Doug and Stacy. Our recipes are obviously different, but you will find success doing things her way as well! This is more for a visual reference than anything else.
