Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Dutch Baby

Hey, hey, hey, it’s a dutch baby! Who doesn’t like a dutch baby? Come on…

I attempted my very first dutch baby earlier this year and have been on a dutch roll ever since. First, I dabbled in traditional varieties like blueberry lemon. But now that it’s fall, I can’t get pumpkin flavors off my mind.

This could easily be topped with powdered sugar for a more traditional serving style. But I opted for semisweet chocolate chips and let’s just say that wasn’t a bad decision.

This dutch baby turned out moist, light and rich with pumpkin flavor. A sprinkle of cinnamon and melted chocolate chips made the perfect “frosting,” for this simple breakfast dish for two.

    Okay, so, WOW!!! This looks AMAZING!! And so easy!
    I’m an incredibly terrible baker, but this actually looks like it would be something I could do!
    However, I’m gluten-intolerant … do you think I could replace the all-purpose flour with coconut flour? (I have a bunch handy!!)
    Thanks for sharing!! :)

      I’d be cautious on the coconut flour – perhaps add another egg and cut the flour back to just a couple tablespoons as coconut flour is very absorbent. Let me know if you try it and how it turns out!

    So glad I found this recipe (I searched for pumpkin dutch baby :) I just made this and it’s so nice and light! Good alternative to the usual blueberry I make. It looks like yours turned out thicker, though. Maybe next time I’ll add a liiiiitle bit more pumpkin. Yum!

    This was perfect for using up that last bit of pumpkin I had in the freezer. And any breakfast which includes a sprinkle of chocolate chips is my kind of food. <3
