Apple Pie Dutch Baby Pancake

Back in February my husband and I took a little staycation in SLC for the weekend. It was so much fun to just hang out and do our own thing all weekend long. One of our favorite places to grab breakfast is, The Original Pancake House, so we knew we would for sure eat there at some point. I almost always get the seasonal berries crepes, but we have tried a bunch of different things. One of my hubby’s favorites is the Dutch Baby. On this specific occasion he chose to get the bananas foster french toast, which was wonderful. A few weeks later I decided to surprise him with an Apple Cinnamon Dutch Baby Pancake since we didn’t eat it a few weeks back. We loved it! Those cinnamony apples were delicious with it! Enjoy!

What Are Dutch Pancakes?

Dutch Baby Pancakes are often times called German Pancakes. They are made from a simple batter of eggs, milk, flour, and a bit of salt.

Can Dutch Baby Pancakes Be Made Ahead?

You can bake the batter ahead.

Place batter in an airtight container and refrigerate overnight (or for up to three days), removing from the fridge while the oven preheats for baking.

Are Dutch Baby Pancakes and Yorkshire Pudding The Same?

A Dutch baby pancake is similar to a large Yorkshire pudding.

About the only real difference is Yorkshire Pudding uses beef drippings to grease the popover pan, while a Dutch Baby uses melted butter in a cast iron skillet.
