  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour I use unbleached
  • 1/2 cup skim milk Any milk can be used
  • 1/4 cup apple juice
  • 3 large eggs room temperature
  • 6 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 apple peeled, cored and diced into 1/4" pieces
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp sugar

Cinnamon Apple Topping

  • 2 apples peeled, cored and diced into 1/4" pieces
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup apple juice
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp corn starch


  • Preheat oven to 425°F.

Cinnamon Apple Topping

  • In a 2-quart saucepan, add diced apples,  lemon juice, and apple juice.  Cook until apples begin to soften, about 5 minutes.
  • In a separate bowl combine cinnamon, brown sugar, and cornstarch.  Stir into apples and continue cooking until thickened.  Remove from heat and set aside.

Dutch Baby Pancake

  • In a small bowl combine diced apple, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and 1 tablespoon of sugar.  Stir to combine and set aside.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, whisk the flour, milk, juice, and eggs together until blended.
  • Melt the butter in a 12" skillet over high heat until foamy. I used a cast iron skillet but use what you have.
  • Pour batter into the skillet and sprinkle on the apple mixture.
  • Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown. It will puff up while baking but flattens shortly after removal from the oven.
  • Cut into slices and serve with cinnamon apple topping
