Blueberry-Pear Dutch Baby Pancake

A blender makes whipping up the batter a snap, but make sure you blend the wet ingredients first, and then add the dry ingredients. For best results, use a 10-inch, non-stick, ovenproof sauté pan.

Blueberry-Pear Dutch Baby Pancake

6 Tbsp. butter, melted, divided

1/2 cup half and half

3 large eggs, lightly beaten

1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon, divided

1/4 tsp. salt

3 Tbsp. light brown sugar

2 Tbsp. lemon juice

1 Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored, and thinly sliced

1  1/2  to 2 cups blueberries

1/4 cup chopped almonds

Powered sugar

Preheat oven to 425°.  Heat butter in microwave at 50% power for 90 seconds or until melted.

Combine half and half, eggs, vanilla extract, and 2 Tbsp. melted butter in a blender; process for 3 seconds.  Add flour, 1/4 tsp. cinnamon, and salt; process until smooth.  Set aside.

Combine remaining 4 Tbsp. melted butter, remaining 1/4 tsp. cinnamon, light brown sugar, and lemon juice in a 10-inch non-stick, ovenproof sauté pan.  Bring mixture to boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly until ingredients are well combined.  Add apples; reduce heat to medium, and simmer, stirring often, for 7 minutes or until apples are tender and liquid is thickened.

Pour batter mixture over apple mixture; add blueberries and gently stir to combine ingredients.  Sprinkle almonds on top of batter.  Bake for 25 minutes or until batter is set and top is golden brown.

Remove from oven. Run a spatula along the edge and under the pancake.  Flip pancake upside down onto serving plate.  Sprinkle top with powdered sugar, and cut into wedges.

Prep: 20 min. Bake: 25 min. Yield: 4 to 6 servings
