Cook’s Notes for Chocolate Dutch Baby Sundaes

I made individual chocolate Dutch babies in my small 5-inch cast iron skillets. The recipe as written will make 3 at that size. Using the same recipe, you could make one in a 6.5-inch skillet or make 5 or 6 tiny ones using a standard muffin tin. If you’d like to make one big one in a 10-inch (top diameter) skillet, simply double the recipe.

As noted above, feel free to get creative with your toppings. Just about anything goes with chocolate, including fruit. You just can’t go wrong :)

Enjoy these warm from the oven, but do be careful of the HOT handles if using cast iron skillets.

For pans:

  • 3 Tbsp butter divided into 3 equal pieces

For batter:

  • 2 eggs
  • 6 Tbsp milk
  • 1 Tbsp butter melted and slightly cooled
  • 4 Tbsp flour
  • 2 Tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla
  • Pinch salt

For topping:

  • Vanilla Ice Cream
  • Chocolate Sauce
  • Caramel Sauce
  • Pecan halves


  1. Place skillets into oven and then preheat oven to 425F with skillets in oven.
  2. Meanwhile, combine all the batter ingredients in a medium bowl and whisk well until fluffy. Set aside.
  3. When oven is preheated, carefully remove skillets from oven (they're hot!). Add 1 Tbsp of butter to each skillet and swirl around to coat as it melts. Give batter a quick whisk, then divide evenly between the 3 skillets. Immediately place into preheated oven and bake until puffy and set, about 10 minutes (for 5-inch skillets).
  4. Remove from oven. Pancakes will deflate as they cool. While still warm, top with a scoop of ice cream, chocolate and caramel sauce and a scattering of pecans.

Recipe Notes

If making in a muffin tin, baking time will be slightly less, about 8 minutes. If doubling recipe and baking in a larger skillet, baking time would be 15-18 minutes.
