A Flavorful Dutch Baby

A combination of a popover and a crepe, Dutch Baby (also known as German pancakes) can be served for breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dessert, and even made savory for a delightful supper.

For this recipe, I’ve added fresh raspberries, blueberries, and pomegranate seeds, but any variation of fresh fruit or jam will do. For an out-of-this world combination, garnish the baby with lemon slices and serve them with buttery pomegranate syrup.
