Apple Cinnamon Dutch Baby

5 from 1 reviews

A German pancake that’s lightly sweetened and puffs up when you bake it!


  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup flour (I use bread flour)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 1 small apple, diced
  • 2 Tablespoons peanut butter
  • handful of chocolate chips


  1. Place a cast iron skillet or other oven-safe pan in the oven and preheat to 425 degrees F.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk and vanilla until frothy.
  3. Add the flour and cinnamon and whisk for 2-3 minutes until well mixed.
  4. Dice apple and set aside.
  5. Once oven is preheated, carefully remove the hot pan, add butter and swirl around pan until bottom and sides are coated.
  6. Add apples to the bottom of the pan.
  7. Pour batter into pan, tilt until whole pan is covered and return to oven.
  8. Bake for 18-20 minutes, watching carefully at the end so the edges don’t burn.
  9. Remove from oven, top with peanut butter and chocolate chips and serve warm.
