If you have never had a dutch baby, it is basically a combo of a pancake, a crepe, and a popover — all in one. 

A Dutch baby pancake is also, sometimes called a German pancake, a Bismarck, or a Dutch puff. No matter what you name you call it – the taste and flavor is out of this world.

How to Make a Keto Dutch Baby 

The key to making the perfect dutch baby is all about pouring your batter in a very hot skillet. This technique enables the dutch baby to puff around the edges and rise like a pillow.

To make the batter, simply whisk all the ingredients together in a bowl. Next, put butter into a cast iron skillet and put it in a hot oven set to 425°F.  

When the butter is melted, use pot holders to remove the skillet from the oven and immediately pour the batter in the skillet.

Place the skillet back in the over and bake for 15-18 minutes or until the center is set.

One the dutch baby comes out of the oven, it will collapse back into the skillet because the steam holding it up will evaporate when it hits the cooler air.

And what results is a soft pancake with a texture of a crepe and flavor of a sweet popover.

Dutch Baby Toppings

While the dutch baby is baking, make the crumble topping by mixing the Sukrin Gold, almond flour, and butter together in a small bowl.

Remove the dutch baby from the oven and top with some fresh blackberries and the crumble topping.

Turn the oven down to 350°F and put the cast iron skillet back in the oven to bake for an additional 3-5 minutes.

All About Blackberries

Fruit on the ketogenic diet can be tricky. Some people think you must eliminate fruit completely, while others (like us) believe that certain low-carb fruits can be included in moderation as part of a healthy keto diet. When looking at fruit, pay attention to the net carb count (total carbs less fiber).

Here are our CKL-approved fruits:

  1. Lemons and Limes: 4 grams net carbs/fruit
  2. Blackberries: 6 grams net carbs/cup
  3. Raspberries: 7 grams net carbs/cup
  4. Strawberries: 8 grams net carbs/cup
  5. Blueberries: 9 grams net carbs/half cup

As you can see, blackberries actually have the lowest net carb count of all the types of berries.  In addition, blackberries are packed with essential nutrients and antioxidants.

They contain a high level of Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Vitamin A, as well as anthocyanins (which are antioxidants that fight against free radicals in the body).

How to Serve Your Keto Dutch Baby

We love to serve this straight from the skillet, so we carefully transfer the pan to the table and serve it right there.

Just cut the dutch baby into slices similar to how you would slice a pie. This dutch baby tastes fantastic as is, but you can also pour over some sugar-free syrup or sprinkle it with confectioner erythritol.

Feel free to double or triple this recipes and make a few dutch babies in the oven at once.

If you have any leftovers, store them in the fridge.

Keto Dutch Baby Tips

Before you start cooking, here are a few tips:

  • A cast iron skillet makes the best dutch baby. If you don't have one, we recommend investing in a high quality one (like this cast iron skillet) as you will end up using it ALL THE TIME. They are also oven-safe which is a huge plus.
  • If you don't have a cast iron skillet, you can use a pie pan.
  • Don't forget to use a pot holder when transferring the cast iron skillet in and out of the oven!! We repeat – USE A POT HOLDER! Trust us, we have learned the hard way, so don't make the same mistake that we did.
  • Don't have blackberries? Feel free to sub any other berry that you have.
