Dutch Baby Oven Pancake with Apples
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 8 Servings
  • 2-3 tart apples (I used Pink Lady)
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ginger
  • ¼ cup butter
  • ¼ cup coconut palm sugar (or brown sugar)
  • 1 cup milk of your choice
  • 1 cup whole wheat or all-purpose flour (or ¾ cup sprouted wheat)
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • dash salt
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. If using an iron skillet, go ahead and stick that in the oven to warm with it.
  3. In large mixing cup, whisk to combine milk, flour and nutmeg, making sure to get all the lumps out.
  4. In separate bowl, whisk together eggs, maple syrup, vanilla and salt.
  5. Add egg mixture to flour mixture and mix well.
  6. Peel and slice apples. I cut them in half also. Not for any real reason, mainly just because I felt like it.
  7. In a small bowl, combine sugar, cinnamon and ginger.
  8. Once the oven has come to temperature, cut the butter into 4 tablespoons and drop it in the iron skillet.
  9. Let it melt and then pull the skillet out of the oven.
  10. Sprinkle the coconut or brown over the bottom of the skillet.
  11. Spread apples on top of brown sugar, keeping it as close to a single layer as you can.
  12. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar mixture on top of the apples.
  13. Put the skillet back in the oven.
  14. When the apples are caramel-y and bubbly, pull the skillet out.
  15. Pour the batter into the skillet, making sure to cover the apples.
  16. Stick it back in the oven and cook for 20-30 minutes, or until the middle is cooked through.
  17. Serve with fresh whipped cream.
If you don't have an iron skillet, you should get one. However, I have read that you can also use a glass casserole dish. If you do, I'd recommend that you warm it with the butter, rather than warming the oven with the dish inside. I have never made a Dutch Baby with a glass dish, so if you go this route, I have no idea how it will turn out. Just sayin'.
