The Mega Paleo Dutch baby pancake

For those with dietary challenges, finding a recipe that’s not too complex to whip up is a joy.  And often I am making a separate meal to the rest of the family to cater for the restricted items on a paleo eating plan (non dairy, grain free and gluten free). However; when my children notice I’m making this recipe, I begin to get requests for a slice.

The smaller skillet is not up to the task of feeding a family of six. So I began to adjust the recipe to fit a large roasting pan. This recipe does the job.

If you are after a larger serving, try this recipe out.

You will notice that we like to use the scan pan stainless steel pans for cooking in our home. They are easy to clean, seem to last the distance, suit our induction cooktop, have a non toxic coating and are reasonably priced for the quality (especially when you wait for the sales).

Mega Paleo Dutch Baby Pancake

This is a great breakfast or sweet treat recipe that ticks the paleo box and will serve a large family. It reminds me of a giant sweet yorkshire pudding. It puffs up in the oven creating a crusty crunchy exterior with the insides more pudding like. Drizzled with maple syrup it's a hit in the Cheney home.
