With a little bit of effort this makes a handsome breakfast. This is a Moosewood cookbook recipe. A Dutch baby is a giant oven – baked pancake. First time I made it I thought of clafoutis so the second time I used frozen cherries. This morning I used apples as the original recipe suggests. Be creative with whatever is in season.

I was feeling mega lazy this morning so didn’t make the syrup that is in the Moosewood recipe. I just added a splash of maple syrup.


Apple Dutch Baby 

3 eggs

3/4 cup  rice milk

1 tbsp agave syrup

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

3/4 cup spelt flour (I’ve also used Dove’s Farm GF flour here too)

1/4 tsp salt


2 cups sliced apples

1tsp cinnamon

Heat oven to GM 7 or 200 C 

  1. Prepare the topping by melting the coconut oil with the cinnamon. Add the apples and, when soft. Remove from heat and place to one side.
  2. Place milk, eggs, melted coconut oil, rice milk, vanilla extract and agave in a large bowl and whisk together.
  3. Sift the dry ingredients (salt and flour) into the wet mixture and mix until incorporated.
  4. Grease a 10″ oven proof dish. Pour in the batter and top with the apples.
  5. Place in the hot oven and bake for 30 mins until golden and puffy.
