Parmesan Dutch Pancake

  • large eggs
  • 2 Tablespoons melted butter
  • 100 g plain flour
  • 100 ml milk
  • 20 g parmesan
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons melted butter for cooking


  • 160 g cherry tomatoes 
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 3 springs fresh thyme
  • 1 Tablespoon of olive oil


  • Two poached or fried eggs to serve


  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C.
  2. Place a cast iron dish into the oven for 15 minutes to preheat. The cast-iron dish needs to be piping hot before adding the pancake batter.
  3. Add all the pancake ingredients into the Vitamix, excluding the parmesan cheese. Blend on a high speed then set aside.
  4. After 15 minutes, remove the cast iron pan from the oven and add 2 Tablespoons of melted butter and place back into the oven for 2 minutes.
  5. Remove the cast iron dish from the oven, quickly add the pancake batter and sprinkle the parmesan cheese on top. You will need to work quickly as the cast iron dish will lose its temperature fast.
  6. Place the cast iron pan back into the oven and bake for 18 – 20 minutes at 220°C.
  7. While the pancake is cooking, prepare the blistered cherry tomatoes. Heat a frying pan with a Tablespoon of olive oil on medium heat.
  8. Add the garlic cloves cut in half, whole cherry tomatoes and fresh thyme. Season with salt and pepper.
  9. Sauté for 5 – 7 minutes then set aside.
  10. Poach or fry the eggs in a separate frying pan. 
  11. Remove the pancake from the oven, place the tomatoes and poached / fried eggs on top and serve hot.
