Dutch Baby Batter
Place a 12-cup muffin tin on the middle rack of oven. Preheat oven to 425F and let pan heat in oven about 20-25 minutes.
Place 4 tablespoons melted butter, milk, eggs, sugar, vanilla, flour, and salt in a high-speed blender or food processor. Blend on medium speed until batter is completely smooth (batter will be quite thin) Set aside for a moment.
Remove preheated pan from oven and generously brush each cup with remaining 2 tablespoons melted butter. Carefully pour batter into cups, filling each cup about 3/4 full.
Bake dutch babies at 425F 15-20 minutes until puffed up and golden brown. Let cool 5 minutes before filling. (dutch babies will slightly deflate as they cool)
While dutch babies bake, assemble your desired toppings (you can use one of my recommended combinations or mix and match all of them for variety!) Once dutch babies have cooled several minutes assemble them with the toppings.
For assembling the banana caramel topping, fill dutch babies with sliced bananas and drizzle with caramel sauce.
For assembling the chocolate raspberry topping, fill dutch babies with raspberries and drizzle with melted chocolate.
For assembling the berries 'n' cream topping, fill dutch babies with whipped cream and top with berries.
Dust all dutch babies with powdered sugar before serving warm. Dutch babies are best if served immediately after they are baked and assembled. Enjoy!
