This recipe is simple but is sure to impress and is prefect for entertaining at brunch. To insure a nice rise and "pouf" to your pancakes use room temperature ingredients. You are looking for a nice puffy crust with a soft custard like middle. A cast iron skillet is preferable but these pancakes can be made in any short sided pan or baking dish.

The recipe may be simple but the options for toppings are endless. I topped my dutch baby with greek yogurt but for a lighten texture you can use whipped cream. Ice cream would also be delicious atop this puffy pancake. Fresh fruit or even a drizzle of chocolate are equally delicious. You can even add savory toppings like cheese or fried eggs. I would still leave the bit of sugar in the batter if you are going for a savory pancake. It will help get the nice browning and crispy crust.

Topping with cinnamon sugar and maple syrup may sound like a sugar overload but matched with tart fruits and tangy greek yogurt everything balances out.
