Miniature Dutch Baby Oven Beer Pancakes with Nutella Whipped Cream

I’m not sure what I miss more, travel, or alone time. Both of these have been scarce this year, and I miss both fiercely. This is what I miss: airplanes. Being on a plane, headphones in, looking out the window from somewhere in the middle of coach. I think I might be the only person in the world that actually misses the airplane and airport portion of travel. Don’t hate me, I love it. I love the energy, the people watching, the fury of it all. 

And I see people traveling, the social distance and masks version, and I’m jealous. I’m a little too skittish is take it on and actually enjoy it. Sure, I’ve road tripped and vacayed close to home, but it’s not the same. I want a non-pandemic-no-masks-no-deadly-virus plane flight to anywhere. 

In the meantime, I’m baking. A lot. SO much in fact, that I bought a treadmill to compensate. This is an actual fact. If you need me, I’ll be eating things with Nutella whipped cream at 5 miles per hour in my garage.

Miniature Dutch Baby Oven Beer Pancakes with Nutella Whipped Cream

Servings: 12 mini pancakes

Ingredients

For the Dutch Babies:

  • ¾ cup (95g) all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup (170g) beer pale ale, pale lager, wheat beer
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter cut into cubes
  • Fresh berries optional

For the whipped cream:

  • 1 cup (226g) heavy cream
  • 3 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Nutella room temperature or slightly warmed

Instructions

  • Add the flour, beer, eggs, vanilla, sugar, and salt to a blender, blend until well combined.
  • Add a muffin tin to the oven and preheat to 425° allowing the batter to rest while the oven preheats.
  • In the last 3 minutes of preheating, add the butter cubes to the muffin tin. If the butter is in the oven too long the butter may burn.
  • Once the muffin tins are heated and the butter is melted, add the batter evenly between the 12 muffin wells.
  • Close the oven and allow to cook until puffed and golden brown, about 14-16 minutes.
  • Add all the whipped cream ingredients to a large bowl or a stand mixer. Beat on high until soft peaks form.
  • Serve the pancakes topped with whipped cream and berries.
