Bittersweet Chocolate Dutch Baby

I know what you’re thinking, what the heck is a dutch baby? I thought the same thing when I first tried this puffy pancake recipe. The dutch baby, sometimes called a German pancake, is made with eggs, flour, milk and is usually seasoned with vanilla, cinnamon and sugar. It starts on the stove and once the batter is added, the skillet is transferred to the oven and where the magic happens. The batter transforms into a delicate puffy skillet cake – creamy and almost custard-like in the center, but crispy and flaky around the edges. You can plate by either cutting them into wedges like a pie or use little biscuit cutters to make little perfect circles.
