More About This Recipe
Pannekoeken? Panekuchen? Dutch Baby? Whatever you call it, a giant oven-baked pancake is always delicious.

Is there ever a time in life that does not call for pancakes?

Yes, actually. There is. And that time is when you’re too busy doing other breakfast-y things (hello, bacon, you time consuming bit of deliciousness, you) to stand around flipping flapjacks.

That’s when the Dutch baby comes in.

This fall, let’s go ahead and mix things up in the Dutch baby department. Let’s bring in some apples. And some streusel. And maaaaaaybe a little drizzle of caramel, because caramel and apples go together like pumpkin and lattes. You know?

Let’s do this thang, friends.

You’re going to need some cinnamon, eggs, flour, brown sugar, oats, vanilla, milk, apples, and butter. Easy ingredients, right?

Whipping up the batter is super simple. Just dump some flour, milk, eggs, vanilla, and salt right into your blender and give it a whirl. The batter will get nice and frothy. Let that sit for about 10 minutes while you work on the apples.

Melt a little butter in your favorite cast iron skillet and then add in some sliced apples. Sprinkle those guys with a bit of cinnamon and cook over medium heat for a couple of minutes.

Pour the batter right over the top of those apples and pop everything in the oven.

While the Dutch baby is in the oven, whip up the streusel. You’ll just grab a fork and smush together the flour, oats, brown sugar, and butter. Everything will get crumbly and delicious.

Sprinkle the streusel right over the top. Isn’t this heavenly?

Pop it back in the oven to finish baking for another 10 minutes.

What comes out of your oven will smell like fall, taste like a dream, and be begging for a drizzle of caramel sauce or pure maple syrup.

Dig in, guys!
