Dutch Baby Batter

  • 3 eggs
  • ½ cup flour can substitute wheat flour for gluten-free flour
  • ½ cup milk
  • 2 tbsp butter melted and cooled
  • ¼ tsp salt

Apple Filling

  • 2 tbsp butter If the sauce is too thick, then add another tablespoon of butter.
  • cup light brown sugar lightly packed
  • 2 medium-sized apples peeled, cored, and thinly sliced
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • sifted powdered sugar



  • Preheat oven to 450°
  • Place an 8" or 9" round baking pan (or cast-iron skillet) in the pre-heated oven for two minutes.
  • Remove pan from oven.
  • Add one tablespoon of melted butter to the hot pan and swirl to coat the pan. Set aside the pan.
  • Whisk eggs in a medium size bowl. Add flour, milk, one tablespoon of melted butter, and salt. Mix the batter thoroughly.
  • Pour batter into hot pan.
  • Return pan to oven and bake the pancake for 18-20 minutes until puffed and golden.

Apples in Sauce

  • Meanwhile, for the apple filling, melt two tablespoons of butter in a skillet over medium heat.
  • Stir in brown sugar until combined. Add more butter if needed.
  • Next, stir in apple slices, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
  • Cook, uncovered for 3-5 minutes or until apples are crisp-tender, stirring occasionally.
  • To serve, remove the baked pancake from the oven. Spoon apple filling into the pancake. If you like, you can place apples in a pretty swirl pattern.
  • Sprinkle with powdered sugar if desired. Cut in wedges and serve warm with maple syrup or whip cream, or ice cream.
