A really good Dutch Baby recipe -- very eggy. The addition of orange rind adds a little extra something to the pancake. (I skipped the almond this time.)

The Dutch Baby Pancake is always a delightful alternative to the traditional griddle cakes. You could substitute other seasonal fruits for the strawberries in this recipe.

Dutch Babies are a favorite around our house. They are so fun for the kids because the puff up. This compote is just wonderful. It is like a tangy and it doesn't over power the delicate flavor of the pancake.
