Dutch Baby Pancake with Fried Apples

Dutch Baby Pancake with Fried Apples @diethood

Eons ago I had mentioned on this blog that I loved breakfast food. I can have breakfast any time of the day. As a matter of fact, I do. My bedtime snack is a bowl of cereal. Minus the milk.

Sundays are my favorite days for breakfast because everyone is home, I can get up early, make something extraordinary for our first meal of the day, and everyone will enjoy it. Full tummy equals happy faces. Trust me. If there’s one thing I’ve learned as a Mother and a wife it’s that a fed baby – and husband – makes a quiet, joyous home.

Last Sunday I was going through ideas; eggs, of course, pancakes, bacon, crepes… Then I remembered that I had not made a Dutch Baby in over a year! Not sure why. It can be put together in a few minutes, it’s delicious, and will feed 3 to 4 people.

For those that are not familiar with Dutch Baby, it is a pancake that is baked in a buttered skillet, and the edges, as well as the middle of the pancake rise high, creating a delicious, puffy crust. But, it will deflate. Look at the photos. By the time I got to it, it was flat. 🙂

As I was preparing the batter for the pancake, I looked at the few Granny Smiths on the counter and, well, pies, pies, pies, was all I could think about. No, I told myself. Not yet. These Granny’s are going into the skillet with some butter and sugar. I need me some fried apples! I haven’t had any in a long time (days, really). So happy I went with that decision. The fried apples were exactly what this pancake needed. Traditionally, Dutch Baby is only served with powdered sugar, but tradition shmadition. Bring on the fried fruit. 😉

  1. Oh, man…starting the day with these would be heavenly!! My mom used to make Dutch babies for us when we were teens…but it’s those sauteed apples that push these over the top…mmmmmmm.

  2. I’ve never made a Dutch baby pancake before. I don’t even know that I’ve ever eaten one. It looks fantastic! I just love anything made in a cast iron skillet really. They just look so rustic and homey. My family would love this and definitely with the fried fruit! 🙂

  3. I was just telling someone how I always love the idea of this Dutch baby and never made it before. It’s about time! It looks super delicious so thanks for posting it’s a sign it’s about time! 🙂

  4. Looks lovely. I love making breakfast too. Especially when I can sneak into the kitchen before anyone else is awake and cook all by myself. By the time they get up, I have somethime yummy ready and I can sit down and let them clean up. Thats a perfect Sunday morning for me!
