Sharing a new favorite Thanksgiving leftover today, Cinnamon Spiced Dutch Baby with Cranberry Butter.

Can you guys believe Thanksgiving is tomorrow? I hope everyone is winding down a bit and settling into some more relaxed holiday vibes. I have to say, I’m really thankful to be here in Cleveland with my family. For a while on Monday it was looking like I would have to miss out on the Thanksgiving trip. I had some issues with a project I’m working on, but thankfully we got it all worked out…for now.

Still a little stressed, but pushing work things out of my mind for the time being and attempting to be present! I have an interview this morning with my little brother, Red, and then it’s to the kitchen for some serious pre-Thanksgiving food prep and table setting.

Kind of excited to be doing an interview with my little brother today. I absolutely love when Red and I get to do anything together. It’s not often that we do, but when we do, it’s always fun. For one, I barely ever see Red, so getting to hang with him alone is awesome. Two, I love when we both get to talk about the things we are passionate about. Snowboarding and cooking are obviously two very different worlds, but the passion we share for each is what makes it so cool. I also enjoy getting to listen to Red do an interview. He’s one of those kids that is just good on camera and always says the right thing…he needs to pass his skills and those blue eyes onto his older sister. Just sayin’.

Anyway, once that interview is said and done, it’s all Thanksgiving prep and family time and I am excited.

Spending the day in the kitchen with Asher, making pies, prepping casseroles, and preparing this spritz. Oh, and these rolls, which Asher is insisting I triple so she has leftover for Friday morning. Got to love that girl.

I’ll be spending the night celebrating someone I love. More details on this to come.

So yeah! I guess that’s kind of my day in a nut shell. You know, in case you guys were wondering…

What are you all up to today!

Hmm, maybe I should tell you guys about this Dutch Baby, huh?

Here’s the quick story. You guys know I love a good Dutch Baby and I will use just about any excuse to make one. Recently I had some cranberry sauce leftover in the fridge from a shoot. I got to thinking that it would probably be pretty delicious mixed with some better.

Um, yes. Cranberry sauce + butter = the best possible butter spread ever.

At first I just used some on toast, but then the Dutch Baby idea came to mind and from that moment on I was hooked.

I went with a simple spiced Dutch Baby topped with cranberry butter, whipped cream, and pure maple syrup.

Does not get better.

Also? Not sure about you about you guys, but cranberry sauce is always one of those dishes that I have so much leftover at the end of Thanksgiving dinner. I always make a huge batch, but only half ever gets eaten. I’ll use some to make sandwiches on Friday, but even then I usually have a bunch leftover.

This Dutch Baby + Cranberry Butter is the perfect solution. It’s so quick and easy to make, making it the best breakfast/brunch/lunch/dinner/late night after Black Friday meal you could ever have. Honest.

I will for sure be making this at some point on Friday. Probably a few of them…there is kind of a lot of us! My one and only tip here? Use high quality flour like my personal favorite, Bob’s Red Mill Organic White Flour. I know it might not seem important, but good flour can make or break a dutch baby!

Hope you all have a great Thanksgiving filled with family and good food!

Cranberry Butter


  • 1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Place 2 tablespoons butter in a 10-12 inch cast iron skillet and place the skillet in the center of the oven.
    2. While the skillet is heating, in a blender, combine the eggs, milk, flour, vanilla, hazelnut liquor, if using, cinnamon, nutmeg salt, and 2 tablespoons melted butter. Blend on high for 30 seconds to one minute or until the batter is smooth. Make sure no large clumps of flour remain. Remove the hot skillet from the oven and pour the batter into the skillet. Place the skillet in the center of the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the pancake is fully puffed and browned on top. DO NOT open the oven during the first 15 minutes of cooking or you might deflate your pancake.
    3. Meanwhile, make the cranberry butter. In a medium bowl, mix together the butter and cranberry sauce until combined. 
    4. Remove the Dutch Baby from the oven and top with cranberry butter, allow it to melt. Then add whipped cream and maple. EAT.

    1. HI! You can make the batter the night before and keep in the fridge, just bring to room temp before baking. Please let me know if you have any other questions. I hope you love this recipe. Thanks so much!! xTieghan

  1. Hey Tieghan!

    My mom and I made the version in the cook book before and it was soooo good!
    Do you think it would work if I subbed coconut milk for the milk? Have you ever tried it with a milk substitute?


    1. Taryn!! Oddly I haven’t tried this with coconut milk, BUT I love coconut milk and bake with it often. I think it would work just the same and add awesome flavor too! Almond or other nut milks would work too I am sure. 🙂

  2. 5 stars
    This was so easy! As my first dutch baby, i was a little skeptical, but it came out just like the pictures. I can’t wait to try the one from the cookbook next.

    Made this as part of “breakfast for dinner” last night and both of my kids went crazy over it! My son said it was so good it should be illegal lol. It was hands down the best dutch baby I’ve ever made (and I make them regularly.) Ive never sdded butter to the bayter ifself before, only yhe pan. The cranberry butter was a delicious contrast with maple syrup. Great job!

  4. I made this on Thanksgiving day. I am a huge fan of Dutch Babies. I usually make them from the NYTimes recipe on their website. This recipe produced an even thicker fluffier and more delicious Dutch Baby! I only had blueberries (no cranberries) so made a blueberry butter for the top. It was delish!! And SSSSOOOO easy to make!!!! Thanks for the recipe!!! 🙂

  5. What?! How could you miss out on this Thanksgiving trip? Business can be tricky and important but spending time with your family, especially this year, comes first. Happy Thanksgiving Tieghan, wind down, forget about work and concentrate on the fun cooking and your family reunion.
    We don’t do Thanksgiving in my country, but I will still be cooking your recipes : Chicken broccoli quinoa casserole and a chocolate lemon ricotta tart.
    Best wishes.

    1. That is so great, I hope you love those recipes! I did make it to Thanksgiving with my family and it was absolutely amazing! Thank you!

  6. Hey Tieghan,
    This Dutch baby looks beautiful and a perfect post-Thanksgiving breakfast dish. Maybe it would be good with egg nog whip cream, if made closer to Christmas? Or some orange zest and extra cinnamon. 😉
    I hope your interview went well and your prep work is going ok! I’m sure your family will love everything you and your mom make and will have a wonderful time. 🙂 I’m looking forward to reading about your gift guide and hope you have a lovely Thanksgving! ☺️❤️

    1. Hi Kristin! I am sure it would taste great with some egg nog whipped cream and definitely extra cinnamon haha! I hope you had a great Thanksgiving with your family!

    HAPPY THANKSGIVING to you and your family. Hope you can relax at least for a few hours while you are there. It is always sad when it is the FIRST of anything after a loved one had passed. Now maybe you all can make new memories and remember all the good ones from before.

  8. Looks delicious! I tried making a dutch baby before, did the same blender method with the preheated cast iron skillet, but the pancake deflated when taken out of the oven. It was very browned and really puffed up in the oven. Still tasted good, but I’d like for it to keep that puffiness. Is this what always happens, or did I do something wrong?

    1. HI! It doesn’t sound like you did anything wrong Dutch Babies deflate pretty quickly after they come out of the oven. Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Please let me know if you have other questions. Hope you love this recipe! Thanks! 🙂

  9. I’ve never tried Dutch baby, this is a dish I got familiar with only through internet when I started to by interested in food, cooking and baking. It is not a thing in uor country (and I’m no Dutch, so maybe it’s only logical ?). But to be honest, I’m kinda scared by it even now, because with my hard luck, it won’t turn out as expected. It shoulf puff and rise at first, right? As I know myself, this will be tricky ?. As you wrote, the flour is important and since I don’t eat grains, I would need to swap it for an alternative (almond, peanut meal, coconut flour..) and I’m sure it won’t work.
    Nevertheless, this Baby looks amazing and the cranberry butter has to be delicious! Especially if you’d used the fresh berries (which is kinda problematic here..).
    Well, sorry for this “nothing to say” comment, I’ve just wanted to express some of my feelings ?. The point is that I wanted to make a bow to you, because you are an amazing cook and everything you post is just pure perfection. It happens really often that you come with recipes I’m not able or allowed to try but either way, it doesn’t stop me from drooling all over them and wishing to devour them.
    Have a wonderful time with your family, spend your Thanksgiving in the best way possible and try not to stress so much, everything will turn out well.
    Take care!
    Sending hugs

    1. I am sure yours would turn out amazing! If you do try it with other kinds of flour, let me know how it turns out and if it worked! Thank you so much!
