It’s easy (made in the blender!) delicious and tastes like a giant autumn hug.

It’s no secret that I’m just a little obsessed with fall breakfasts. From pumpkin cheesecake baked oatmeal to pumpkin pie steel cut oats, I love a cozy, warm, spiced breakfast that everyone can enjoy. 

I also love a fall breakfast that can work as holiday brunch or even breakfast for dinner.

And that’s what this pumpkin dutch baby is!

A giant pumpkin flavored pancake that’s baked in the oven and can be served to your family on saturday morning before all sorts of autumnal activities. Or can work as a pre-Thanksgiving breakfast or day-after brunch. There is really no wrong way. 

Throw on the maple mascarpone cream and it’s heaven in a dish!

Every time I make a dutch baby, I’m stunned at how easy the process is. I love that it makes a large portion so it can feed the whole family at once – there is no flipping pancakes and serving a few at a time. 

All of the dutch baby ingredients get tossed in a blender and whipped up until smooth. While that happens, I melt butter in a baking dish in the oven. Then pour the batter into the hot buttered dish and bake. 

Guys, that is IT. That’s how the whole thing is made.

I bake it for about 20 to 25 minutes. It will puff up and get giant and fluffy. Honestly, it is so pretty! Don’t be alarmed when it falls after it comes out of the oven. It only stays huge for a few minutes.

But the texture is cloudlike and airy and at the same time – so satisfying! 

That’s one of the things that I love about making a dutch baby. It’s super satisfying and filling. And this one is extra filling. Not only do we have the eggs, but the pumpkin puree that is filled with fiber… it’s a stick-to-your-ribs kind of breakfast.

Maple syrup is a classic topping for a dutch baby, but I love making an easy whipped cream or in this case, a maple mascarpone. It’s so incredible and you’ll want to eat it with a spoon right out of the bowl.

I also like to dollop on some pumpkin butter because we love it so much.

I love pumpkin butter more than pumpkin puree, and throwing some on top is like adding jam or preserves in the best fall way possible.

Fall perfection for all of your friends!
