Apple Dutch Baby

First and foremost, happy birthday to Dave! We have a jam packed day of birthday activities and it should be a great time. If you follow me on Instagram, you can check out the fun from brunch to dinner and everything in between.

Dutch baby pancakes are one of my favorite weekend breakfast foods. It takes minimal work to put one together and there is no need to stand over the stove flipping pancakes -- everyone gets to eat at the same time.

Recipe from Shop Girl Maria.

-3 eggs
-1 cup milk
-3/4 cup all-purpose flour
-3 tbs unsalted butter, melted
-1 tbs granulated sugar
-1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Apple Topping
-2 apples, peeled and thinly sliced
-1 tsp granulated sugar
-1 tsp lemon juice
-1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
-1/2 tbs unsalted butter
-Confectioners' sugar (for dusting at the end)

In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, flour, sugar and vanilla extract. Set aside. Melt butter in a cast-iron skillet and preheat your oven to 400. Pour the batter into the cast iron skillet, and bake for 20 - 25 minutes, or until the pancake begins to puff up.

While the pancake is baking to prepare your apple topping. Peel and thinly slice your apples, and saute them in a small skillet with the butter, sugar, lemon juice and cinnamon. Cook until the apples are soft.

Top with powdered sugar before serving.

This dutch baby pancake was light and fluffy. The apple topping added a nice tart element to the dish and the extra dusting of sugar added some additional sweetness. Dave and I happily devoured the entire thing for breakfast with several cups of coffee.
