Smoked Salmon Dutch Baby


Dutch baby is a German sweet pancake cooked in a cast iron pan and baked in the oven. Usually, it is top with berries, lemon juice, and icing sugar, and is normally served for breakfast. Well, in Malaysia, we are more likely to have it for brunch. For the topping, you can go all crazy, really. We went with smoked salmon and top with crème fraîche and chives – that’s how you turn a sweet breakfast into a savory brunch!
