This Keto Dutch Baby is like a cross between Yorkshire pudding, soufflé and pancakes. It's the perfect keto breakfast meal that's nut-free, coconut-free, carnivore and high in protein to keep hunger away.
Similar to our Low-Carb Cheese Soufflé, this pancake is made with fluffy eggs combined with grated parmesan cheese plus powdered egg whites (or egg white protein isolate) which I also used in this 90 Second Keto White Bread to keep it light and fluffy. Although I haven't tried it, it should work with whey protein powder too. To keep the eggs from deflating I added a pinch of cream of tartar (or you can use vinegar). You can skip this ingredient but the pancake may be flatter.
The topping is simple — chopped ham and cheese, plus optional herbs such as chives, parsley or spring onion. I used gruyere but other types of cheese will work too — cheddar, gouda, emmental, mozzarella, feta, manchego or blue cheese will all be good options.
If you prefer a sweet keto breakfast option instead, try my Keto Lemon Soufflé & Berry Pancake. It's just as easy and delicious!
