Ingredients

Blueberry Sauce:

  • 3 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 3 Tbsp water
  • 1 cup wild or cultivated fresh blueberries
  • 1 tsp lemon juice

Dutch Baby Batter:

  • 4 Tbsp unsalted butter DIVIDED
  • 4 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 Tbsp sugar DIVIDED
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt (or pinch of table salt)
  • 2-3 peaches halved, pitted, cut into 1/2- wedges (no need to peel)

Instructions

  • In a small saucepan, whisk together the sugar and cornstarch. Whisk in water. Add blueberries and cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until thickened and berries are softened, about 4-5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in lemon juice. Set aside. (Can be made ahead and refrigerated. Simply re-warm before using to top dessert).
  • Preheat oven to 425°F.
  • Melt 2 Tbsp. in the microwave and then pour into a blender or food processor. Add the eggs, milk, flour, 1 Tbsp. sugar, vanilla extract, and salt. Blend batter until smooth. Let sit in blender, while you prepare the peaches.
  • Heat a 12-inch cast-iron skillet over medium heat. Add the remaining 2 Tbsp. of butter and melt. Add the remaining 2 Tbsp. sugar and cook, stirring constantly, until the sugar starts to caramelize, about 2 minutes. Add peaches to skillet and increase heat to medium-high. Cook, stirring frequently, until softened, about 2 minutes.
  • Briefly re-blend the batter, then pour evenly over peaches. Transfer the skillet to the pre-heated oven.
  • Bake pancake until puffed and golden brown all over, about 18-22 minutes. It will deflate as soon as it's removed from the oven. Don't despair. That's what it is supposed to do.
  • Dust pancake generously with powdered sugar and top with 3 or 4 scoops of vanilla ice cream. Top ice cream with some blueberry sauce, then serve immediately right from the skillet.
