Strawberry Vanilla Bean Dutch Baby – Secret Recipe Club

It’s Secret Recipe Club reveal day today! Yeah! I truly love these days so much. I love getting to see who had Food Babbles and I love surprising someone else by recreating something they made on their blog also. The best part each month though is getting to discover a new blog that I may not have known about before. This month I was assigned Culinary Adventures with Camilla. In her own words Camilla describes herself as “”a tree-hugging, veggie-crunching, jewelry-designing mean mommy who loves to cook but hates to clean.”  She also said her parenting goals are to “grow conscientious, creative kids with fearless palates!” Love that! I am partially screwed by my husband’s picky eating genes than run very deep and will stubbornly not budge despite my best efforts.

Camilla has some enticing recipes that are so creative on her site like Cardamom-Scented Lamb Stew with Pears. I love the sweet and savory notes in that stew and I don’t think I’ve ever thought to use cardamom in a savory meal before. How about Wild Boar Rillettes? Oh and I will definitely be making this Goat Cheese & Pumpkin Butter Tart. The flavor combination sounds incredible!

As I browsed through endless, mouth-watering recipes I stumbled across a recipe for Vanilla Bean Pannekoeken. I wasn’t sure exactly was it was but it looked liked a slice of thin pastry topped with raspberries and dusted with powdered sugar. As I read on, Camilla told a lovely story about living in the Netherlands for 3 years as a child and how every Sunday her family drove to a farm where they served Pannekoeken, dutch pancakes. AKA: Dutch babies. As she ate her Dutch pancakes she was transported to her childhood, that farm and the memory of eating Pannekoeken.

After reading this, I was able to envision a bit of Holland and a tiny piece of Camilla herself which endeared me to this recipe. I knew this was the recipe I wanted to make. I made the Pannekoeken as she instructed and topped mine with macerated strawberries and a bit of mascarpone whipped cream I had left over from that Red Wine Chocolate Bundt Cake which went so nicely with this light, fluffy pancake. I loved this recipe and I truly enjoyed reading Camilla’s blog. I know that you all will too so please go over and say, “hello!”

Enjoy!

What a great recipe, we love Dutch Baby pancakes. This month I was assigned your blog and it was a tough choice as you have so many wonderful recipes. In the end I made your lemon biscotti which were wonderful. Thanks for a great recipe, here’s the link to my SRC entry Lemon Almond Biscotti.

My husband was a very picky eater as a kid, and I’m always so glad that he grew out of it. Tricky to love food but to find things that your spouse will love too. I’ve never made (or tried) dutch babies, but I always think they are so pretty and fun – this may be just the motivation I need to give it a try!

Kate February 9, 2013 at 2:47 pm

You should definitely give it a try! They’re so quick and easy to make.

I haven’t had Dutch Baby in yeeeeeeaaaars, but your gorgeous pictures have me wishing it was a weekend morning so that I could run off to the kitchen to make one right now. Love the idea of filling it with berries and mascarpone whipped cream… simple, but oh so good.
