Do you Dutch Baby?

Apple Dutch Baby

A Dutch baby pancake, sometimes called a German pancake - it is essentially a large Yorkshire pudding but this one is made with fresh, local apples. Give it a try, it's super delicious served with maple syrup of course!


  • 3 large eggs, room temperature
  • ¾ cup whole milk, room temperature
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract*
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt*
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, divided*
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
  • 1 large Gala apple, peeled, sliced ¼” thick
  • 1 tablespoon light brown sugar*
    • *Available from Well Seasoned


  1. Preheat oven to 425°. Whisk eggs, milk, flour, vanilla, salt, and ½ tsp. cinnamon in a medium bowl until smooth.
  2. Melt 2 Tbsp. butter in a 10” skillet, preferably cast iron, over medium heat. Add apple and sprinkle with brown sugar and remaining ½ tsp. cinnamon. Cook, tossing often, until apple is coated and softened, about 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
  3. Wipe out skillet and heat in oven until very hot, 8–10 minutes. Carefully add remaining butter to skillet, tilting to coat bottom and sides. Add apple to centre of skillet; pour batter over. Bake until pancake is puffed and golden brown around the edges and centre is set but still custardy, 12–15 minutes. Serve fresh from the oven with maple syrup.
