Dutch Baby Pancake with Strawberry-Almond Compote Recipe

Pannekoeken, or Dutch baked pancakes, are a treat in my husband’s family. You can also try this recipe with vanilla extract, blueberries and lemon peel. —Jennifer Beckman, Falls Church, Virginia

"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."
