You guys, happy November!!

Still cannot believe this day is here, but it is, and that means it’s Thanksgiving time! So pumped. Anyone with me?

I spent some time on Sunday night doing a little recipe research for Turkey Day, but I’d also like to know what you guys want to see this year. I am leaning towards sharing a few sides, some easy appetizers and a fun drink. Oh, and obviously plenty of desserts…pies and cookies will all be coming your way! Of course I’ll also focus on some easy dinners that we can all enjoy leading up to the big day. How does that sound? Thanksgiving for me is all about the traditional Turkey Day menu. I always make the same turkey recipe and then play around (just a little) with the sides and desserts. In general though, you’ll always see mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, gravy, cranberry sauce, roasted veggies, soupstuffing, and at least two to three desserts. For as much as I love a super creative recipe, it’s not something I focus on for Thanksgiving. I am a traditions girl all the way. But please, let me know if there’s something you are dying to see! ๐Ÿ™‚

Soo anyway, aside from all the Thanksgiving planning and Halloween festivities of the weekend, I also created this fun Sweet Potato Pie Dutch Baby!! I’m not sure if you guys know this, but over here, we kind of have a thing for Dutch Babies. So when the thought came to mind to create a sweet potato pie Dutch Baby I had to make it right away. Obviously, I knew it needed to be shared immediately.

I mean, this is just one of those recipes you NEED to be making from now through Thanksgiving, when sweet potatoes are basically everywhere.

I had some roasted sweet potatoes leftover in my fridge from an upcoming recipe you’ll be seeing soon. I was just going to make a soup, but then something sweet, buttery and doughy sounded really good! Thirty minutes later I had mom over and we were sharing one big Dutch Baby for our Saturday Brunch. It was perfection, and when I realized it was perfection I also realized I needed to make another one, photograph it, and share it with you all, ASAP. Yes, two Dutch Babies in one day.

The base of this fluffy pancake tastes just like a sweet potato pie, cinnamony, with a pinch of nutmeg and delicious sweet potato flavors. I used Bob’s Red Mill All-Purpose Flour to create the perfect light and airy Dutch Baby. Then I topped the pie off with a maple whipped cream, candied pecans, and a hefty drizzle of both maple syrup and browned butter.

One of my favorite things about Dutch Babies, or German Pancakes as some call them, is that they are truly one of the easiest things to prepare. Just add everything to a blender, blend away, and then pour into a skillet and bake. Literally as simple at that. Perfect for easy holiday entertaining…aka Thanksgiving breakfast! Yes, I am totally one of those people who needs Thanksgiving breakfast. Although my family eats Thanksgiving dinner at a more “normal” time, around seven or eight, a breakfast or brunch is still needed to hold us over. We need some energy before our annual hike to cut down our Christmas tree!

Point is, breakfast is needed!

PS. I’d say this is a pretty perfect way to kick off November, don’t you think?

Sweet Potato Pie Dutch Baby.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 0 SERVES 4-6

Ingredients

  • 4 eggs
  • 3/4 cups whole milk
  • 2/3 cup Bob's Red Mill All-Purpose Flour
  • 1/4 cup sweet potato puree see Note
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • browned butter and maple syrup for serving

Whipped Cream

Candied Pecan Streusel

  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup pecans
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Bob's Red Mill All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Instructions

  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 or food processor, combine the eggs, milk, flour, sweet potato, vanilla, 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 cream. Using an electric mixer whip the cream in a large bowl until stiff peaks form, about 3 minutes. Add the maple syrup and mix until just combined. Keep in the fridge until ready to serve.
  4. To make the Streusel. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the pecans, brown sugar, flour, and cinnamon. Cook, stirring often until the pecans are golden and toasted, 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla.
  5. Remove the Dutch Baby from the oven and serve with a dollop of whipped cream and a sprinkle of pecan streusel. If using, drizzle with brown butter. EAT.
To us fresh roasted sweet potato puree, preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Prick your sweet potatoes all over with a fork and place in the oven, placing the potatoes directly on the oven rack. Roast for 45-50 minutes or until the potato is fork tender. Let cool and use the flesh as directed. Alternately, you can use pumpkin puree.
