20160410 Apple Dutch Baby 02

D and I just had a lovely baby boy! It’s been a bit hectic in our house since his arrival, so I haven’t had much time to cook. This is the first meal I prepared from scratch, and it was perfect for a quiet Sunday morning.

You will need:

  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 c flour
  • 1/2 t baking powder
  • 1 T + 1/4 c sugar, divided
  • 1 t ground nutmeg, divided
  • 1 t ground cinnamon, divided
  • 1 t vanilla extract
  • 1/2 c milk
  • 2 T + 1/4 c unsalted butter, divided and melted
  • 1 large apple, peeled, cored and cut into 1/4-inch slices (I used a honeycrisp)

Then you will…

  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs with the flour, baking powder, a tablespoon of the sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon each of nutmeg and cinnamon.
  2. Whisk in the vanilla extract, milk and 2 tablespoons of melted butter. Set aside.
  3. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil and place a 9-inch pie plate on the lined sheet.
  4. In a small mixing bowl, combine the remaining 1/4 cup of sugar with the remaining cinnamon and nutmeg.
  5. Pour the remaining 1/4 cup of melted butter in the pie plate and brush some butter up the sides.
  6. Sprinkle 1/2 of the spiced sugar mixture on the melted butter.
  7. Top with the apple slices and sprinkle with the remaining spiced sugar mixture.
  8. Bake 10 minutes, or until the mixture is bubbly.
  9. Gently pour the batter on top of the apples and return the dish to the oven. Bake for 15 minutes.
  10. Reduce the heat to 375 degrees. Bake for another 10 minutes.
  11. Serve hot with a little powdered sugar or maple syrup.
