Apple Cinnamon Dutch Baby Pancake
This recipe for apple cinnamon dutch baby pancake is delicious, easy and only takes about 15 minutes to bake. My son loves anything that tastes like apple pie, so I kept that in mind when I added the apple cinnamon flavors. He looked pretty excited when this came out of the oven. Don’t you think?
The great thing about this Dutch Baby Pancake recipe is you probably already have the ingredients in your kitchen. It only takes 10 minutes to prepare and another 15 minutes to bake. You can flavor these pancakes with other fruit or just make them plain. My favorite variation is to zest a little lemon on top of them while baking and then squeeze a little lemon juice and dust with powdered sugar. No syrup required!
- 1/2 stick of unsalted butter
- 1 apple, peeled cored and sliced
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 3/4 cup of whole milk
- 3/4 cup flour
- 4 TBSP organic sugar
- 3/4 tsp organic real vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp salt
- confectioner’s (powdered) sugar
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
In a 10 inch cast iron skillet, melt the butter. Add apple slices and cook for 5 minutes until tender over medium low heat. Take 2 tablespoons of the melted butter and add it to a blender pitcher.
Sprinkle cinnamon over cooking apples. Turn apples over to make sure they are getting soft on all sides.
Add remaining ingredients to blender and mix until just combined.
Pour batter over apples and place skillet in the oven. Cook for about 15- 17 minutes or until pancake is puffy and lightly golden. The pancake will collapse after you remove it from the oven. Dust with powdered sugar (unfortunately, I didn’t realize I was out of powdered sugar until after I made this so the pancake in the photo doesn’t have a pretty dusting of sugar on it.)
