This luscious Applejack Dutch Baby Recipe will have you weak with apple fever. It is the perfect way to kick off apple season this year!
If there was ever a breakfast item that makes me swoon, it’s a dutch baby.
I love these things.
No… I am completely smitten with dutch babies.
If you’ve never made a dutch baby, you need to. I can say that without any reservation.
You NEED to.
This oven-baked Applejack Dutch Baby is rich, buttery, and almost custard like on the inside.
It all starts with an eggy pancake batter whirled to frothy perfection in the blender. Then the batter is poured into a sizzling hot skillet and placed in the oven.
Part of the beauty of a dutch baby is watching it rise into enormous bubbles in the oven, only to deflate the moment it comes out. These deflated air bubbles creates the most amazing layered texture, you could ever hope for in a pancake.
In today’s variation, the Applejack Dutch Baby, I added dark rich Musselman’s Apple Butter and apple brandy to provide a certain apple-icious pop of flavor.
I then topped the Applejack Dutch Baby with sweet vanilla yogurt and freshly sliced apples.
This my friends, is how to kick off apple season.
Honey Crisps are at their peak right now. Don’t they deserve to sit on such a lovely bed of apple goodness?
I think so.
