This large American popover is said to have originated in the Atlantic side. It’s other alias, Dutch baby, was invented in Seattle, Washington with the Dutch name having to do with the Pennsylvania Dutch (referring to German settlers as Deutsch or Deitsch) – a group formed by German immigrants in the 17th and 18th century.
