This recipe is SUGAR FREE to go along with my 20 Day No Sugar Challenge!
When I married my husband I had no idea what a Dutch Baby or German Pancake was. Baffled and confused he thought for sure I had lived a deprived childhood! The only thing I may have been deprived of was sugar!
Cinnamon Apple dutch Baby by Clean Eats & Treats
As a child my husbands mother taught him major baking skills. Something I never learned. My mother didn’t bake much. Especially sweets. It works out perfect for us. He brings the baked goods while I cook and create meals. Perfect balance. I do however always offer my healthified spin on his creations. Which by the way he is starting to appreciate!
He is the breakfast king around our house when it comes to sweets and these hit the menu at least once a week. I took my own spin on his basic recipe and added sautéed cinnamon apples. The results were delish!
Cinnamon Apple Dutch Baby
If you don't have a cast iron skillet or oven safe frying pan you can sauté apples in a pan on the stove top and transfer mixture to a glass baking dish or cake pan. Add batter and bake.
- 1/3 cup flour I like Bobs Red Mill gluten free all purpose
- 1/2 cup milk of choice
- 2 eggs
- dash of nutmeg
- 3-4 Tbsp grass fed butter or coconut oil
- 2 honeycrisp apples
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
While oven is heating peel, core and thinly slice apples.
Sauté apples in butter or oil in a cast iron skillet on stove top for about 3-5 min. Sprinkle generously with cinnamon.
Place skillet with apples in the oven while preparing batter.
Combine milk, eggs, flour and nutmeg and place in blender or bowl. Blend or whisk until smooth.
Remove skillet from oven and pour batter over apples. I like to add a few slices of apple on top.
Return to oven and bake 15-20 min or until golden brown and puffed up.
Slice into wedges and serve.
Sprinkle with coconut sugar and a squeeze of lemon juice, drizzle pure maple, or top with fresh fruit preserves. Enjoy!
