The classic Dutch baby, originally hailing from Seattle, WA, was created in the kitchen of the restaurant Manca’s Cafe in the 1900’s. These warm and savory pancakes were derived from German pancakes and did not need any leavening agents to rise. Flour, sugar, milk, and eggs were the only ingredients in this wonderful breakfast treat. Traditional Dutch babies are served warm out of the oven, sprinkled with powdered sugar, and dotted with fresh berries. Living across the water from Seattle (we can see West Seattle from the street over) this pancake quickly became a staple in the house when we moved to the PNW.
When thinking about how I could make this favorite family treat into a carnivore creation, I had to think about what elements I could use since there would be a lack of flour. I stood in front of my fridge, staring into a very clean and neatly organized appliance. As the coolness of the icebox hit my face, my eyes drifted upon a Costco sized tube of cottage cheese – that was it! I quickly whipped up a recipe in my head, baked it, and my family devoured the entire cast iron pan full of Dutch baby goodness within minutes. Next, was to test the recipe with some magickal fairy dust and double the recipe for extra fluff!
Strain specific, you know me! I had A LOT of weed strains to choose from when it came to a pairing with this dish. I narrowed it down to Double Dutch as I love the terpenes profiles of wildflowers and berries, a bit like wildflower honey. And I liked the name, obviously. The effects of this strain are a nice relaxing vibe which is not too overpowering. which makes it perfect for a Netflix and chill night. Not into cannabis? Don’t worry, as I mentioned before, this recipe is an absolute hit un-medicated! My daughter MJ loves it with maple syrup drizzled on top and I love it with globs of melted butter. You do you, boo.

Carnivore Double Dutch BabyCourse: Breakfast, CarnivoreCuisine: CarnivoreDifficulty: Easy
The classic Dutch baby, elevated to the carnivore lifestyle with just with 3 simple ingredients.
1 Cup Cream Cheese
1 Cup Cottage Cheese
8 Pastured Eggs
Butter (to grease pan)
- Optional Ingredients
Pinch Himalayan Sea Salt (Optional)
1/4 Cup Powdered Monk Fruit (Optional)
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Bean Extract (Optional)
1/2 gram decarbed Double Dutch Kief (Optional)
Maple or Keto Syrup or Powdered Monk Fruit Sugar (optional topping)
- In a Vitamix, add the cream cheese, cottage cheese, and eggs. You can also add the optional sea salt, vanilla extract, monk fruit sugar, and kief. Blend on high until fully combined.
- Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Grease a 9″ cast iron skillet with butter and put into the oven as it preheats. If your oven preheats slowly, put the pan in at 400 degrees and keep a watchful eye on the butter. You do not want the butter to over brown or burn. When the butter starts foaming white and the pan is hot, it is ready.
- Once preheated, pull the pan from the oven and then pour the batter into the hot pan.
- Put the skillet back into the oven on the top rack and bake for 25 minutes for a custard like setting. Bake for 35-40 minutes for a souffle like setting.
- Pull from the oven, and let it cool for 5 minutes. The Dutch baby will deflate slightly, which is what traditional Dutch babies do as well!
- Serve with melted butter, powdered monk fruit sugar, maple syrup, or keto maple syrup if desired.
- Using vanilla extract, maple syrup, keto maple syrup, and monk fruit sugar is not Carnivore. However, if you are transitioning onto the Carnivore lifestyle, adding these elements will help you make the switch with ease.
- Cannabis is technically not Carnivore; however, I see plants as medicine as long as they are extracted correctly and used only when needed.
- For a more tailored dosage and revolutionary precise dosing chart, be sure to order a copy of my book, The Ganja Kitchen Revolution
- If the gram of kief tests at 50% THC, fifty percent of 1,000mg would be 500mg. So, if you added 1/2-gram worth of kief into the total recipe at 50% THC, it would contain 250mg total. Sub the number of your THC percentage and do the math to figure out the desired dosing. If you want a smaller dose, cut the kief down to a smaller portion.
Can I make these without weed?
Of course! These recipes taste amazing both infused and not!
What is the best monk fruit sugar or keto maple syrup to use?
Lakanto monk fruit sugar and Lakanto maple syrup I feel are the best texture, taste, and mouthfeel when it comes to carb friendly sweeteners.
