Welcome to the second day of #BrunchWeek! Today I am offering my recipe for Cinnamon Apple Dutch Babies, which is from the German pfannkuchen (or pancake) (although the original recipe hails out of Seattle) and this topping is with fried apples. If you have followed me for very long, you know I have posted recipes for Dutch Babies before as well as fried apples, but this is a little different from my German Apple Pancake (which has the apples cooked right in) in that this is just a topping. But it is a great combination for you to try.

Miss Sophia enjoys when sponsors send sample product. Especially those delicious boxes!

Along with this recipe there will be lots of other brunch recipes from other bloggers as well  as a giveaway you can still enter, so keep scrolling so you don’t miss that!

Dixie Crystals was gracious enough to send along a boatload of sugar. What would you like me to whip up with this sweet addition to my pantry?

I really do want to thank the sponsors for sending me product to use in this recipe today. I received some Lady Alice apples from Rainier Fruit, which are great for cooking as they hold their shape nicely, as well as the requisite sugar from Dixie Crystals to add that sweet touch.

Rainier Fruits, not to be outdone, graced my doorstep with some delicious Lady Alice apples!

Cinnamon-Apple Dutch Baby


  • Dutch Baby:
  • 3 large eggs,  room temperature
  • 2/3 cup milk,  room temperature
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • pinch salt
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • Cinnamon-Apple Topping:
  • 4 Lady Alice apples or other cooking apples,  peeled, cored and sliced
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1-1/2 cups water or apple juice
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup Dixie Crystals granulated sugar
  • Dixie Crystals Powdered Sugar (amount as desired)


  1. To prepare Dutch Baby, preheat a 10-inch cast iron skillet in an oven at 450°F. on the center rack.
  2. Place eggs in a blender and pulse a few times until the eggs are frothy, then add the milk, flour and salt, running  the blender until you get a smooth batter. You can whisk by hand if you despise a blender, but I like them.
  3. Once the skillet is hot from the preheat, add the butter to the skillet and swirl until it melts.
  4. Pour the batter right in there and bake for 18-25 minutes or until puffed and golden.
  5. To prepare apple topping heat butter in a nonstick skillet and add apples, lemon juice  water (or apple juice), cinnamon and granulated sugar.
  6. Cook over low heat until tender and caramelized, about 15 minutes.
  7. Serve the Dutch Baby with apples piled in the center and sprinkled with powdered sugar.
