Dutch Babies and Apples…

So, recently, I mentioned in a post that I had fixed Dutch babies with cinnamon spiced apples for breakfast. Someone commented that it sounded good, so I thought you might enjoy the recipe. Here it is!

Ingredients:

5 eggs

1/2 cup butter

1 1/4 cups milk

1 1/4 cups flour (I use gluten free)

Pinch of salt

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Melt butter, and using pastry brush, coat 9×13 baking pan with some of the butter. Set remainder aside.

Beat eggs on high till fluffy

Add milk, beat on high some more

Add salt and flour and beat til blended well.

Add melted butter and beat briefly, batter will thicken quickly and try to clog the beaters.

Pour batter into baking dish and spread to edges with spatula.

Put into oven and bake for 25 minutes

It will puff up. Remove it when it begins to get golden brown. Once you remove it, the puff will drop.

Topping:

2 sweet apples diced bite sized (I use honeycrisp)

1 Tbls cinnamon

2 Tbls butter

Optional: 1/2 cup of nuts of your choice

Optional: if you must have it sweeter, add a couple tablespoons of brown sugar

Melt butter in pan, add apples, cinnamon (and sugar if using), sauté until softened and butter is mostly absorbed/reduced. Serve over hot Dutch Baby, too with whipped cream if you do sugar.

Variations:

Add finely shredded carrot to the apple mixture before you cook.

Slice up a few plums, add a couple drops of wild orange essential oil and cardamom essential oil, stir around so juices spread oils around. Place on top of batter before you cook it. I only recommend using essential oils that have supplement facts on them. You could use a couple TBLS orange juice and a sprinkle of ground cardamom instead.

Very yummy! I will eat leftover pieces warmed with butter like toast. I hope you enjoy this as much as I do!
