Savory Havarti Dutch Baby w/ Pears


Preheat oven to 425° F. Once hot, place the butter in a 9 or 10-inch heavy skillet or pie plate and slide into the oven for 5 minutes, until melted.

In the meantime, beat the rest of the ingredients for the Dutch Baby together until well-combined. Pour into the hot pan on top of the melted butter and slide back into the oven. Bake for 20 minutes, or until puffed and golden.

In the meantime, make the pear topping by melting the butter in a skillet over medium heat with the brown sugar and vanilla until bubbling. Add the sliced pears, cardamom, and sea salt. Cook until just tender, 5 minutes. Remove from heat.

When the Dutch Baby is removed from the oven, top it with the pears and sprinkle powdered sugar over everything, if using. Cut into 4 wedges and serve.
