This delicious Apple Dutch Baby is a delicious flavor twist on the traditional dutch baby pancake. So good you will almost feel guilty eating it for breakfast! Be sure and watch the video below on how to make this apple dutch baby.
Last weekend we went to Meriwethers in NW Portland. I ordered their Cinnamon Apple Dutch Baby Pancake and it was fabulous. But during the whole meal my accountant husband was thinking about how we could make it at home for so much cheaper than $13.00.
So breakfast that next Sunday morning, he made us and apple dutch baby!
We used our cast iron frying pan just like the restaurant (although theirs was an individual serving size.) I love my cast iron pan and cook in it all the time. I actually have three of them. That is what happens when you are married to a former Scoutmaster!
We had some Gala apples on hand and they worked perfect.
So I couldn’t help myself but when Jim’s back was turned I did rearrange the apples just a bit to make them look a little prettier and neater.
Next, he mixed up the dutch baby egg mixture and poured it in.
Next, we topped it with a mixture of cinnamon and sugar.
And then we popped it in the oven and waited!
I love how it puffs up around the edges.
I am proud to say I liked my husband’s apple dutch baby recipe better! It was not as thick and custardy as the one at the restaurant. The restaurant served it with a lemon crema which was wonderful. But we found our version was so delicious it didn’t need anything! I just added a sprinkling of powdered sugar.
