This SCD Pumpkin Dutch Baby has a light custard texture, which makes it good for either breakfast or dessert. It’s only lightly sweetened and is perfect topped with a little honey drizzle. You could also try some fresh fruit or a fruit compote.
It’s a great cast-iron skillet recipe. It cooks perfectly in the heavy pan. To make this recipe Paleo you can substitute coconut oil for the butter.
For the coconut milk you need to find a canned milk that has no added sugar or guar gum. I use Natural Value coconut milk.
You can serve this either warm or cold. Because of the custardy texture, I actually preferred it chilled.
