This Paleo Apple Cinnamon Dutch Baby is a fluffy pancake that is baked in the oven until fluffy and topped with homemade apple sauce. It's great to serve for breakfast or brunch and is full of fall flavors. I promise you this will be one of your favorite breakfasts to make!

  • The first step to making a dutch baby is placing a dollop of butter in a skillet (I prefer a cast iron) in a preheated oven to allow the skillet to get hot.
  • Next, a simple batter of almond flour, tapioca starch, eggs and milk is mixed together and then poured into the hot skillet. The skillet is placed back into the oven to allow the pancake to cook, rise and become fluffy and golden brown.
  • While the pancake is baking, apples are chopped and cooked with maple syrup, cinnamon and a splash of water for a simple homemade applesauce.
  • Lastly, when the Dutch Baby Pancake is golden brown on the edges, it is removed from the oven and the apple sauce is placed on top with a drizzle of maple syrup.

For the Dutch Baby:
  • 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp tapioca starch
  • 3 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 1 cup + 2 tbsp non-dairy milk such as almond, coconut etc...
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
For the apple sauce:
  • 3-4 apples, chopped
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • Splash of water
For the pancake:
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees
In a 10-12 inch skillet (I prefer a cast iron skillet but stainless steel is fine), add the two tablespoons of butter and place in the oven while you mix the batter
In a medium sized bowl, mix together the almond flour, tapioca starch, coconut sugar, milk, eggs, vanilla extract and the salt. Once the oven is preheated and the skillet is hot, carefully remove it from the oven and pour the pancake batter into the hot skillet. Place back into the oven and place back into the oven and bake for about twenty minutes
For the apple sauce:
While the pancake is baking in the oven, add the chopped apples, maple syrup, cinnamon and the splash of water to a sauce pan and cook over low heat. The apples will start to break down and cook. Gently mash with a fork or spatula
Once the apples are cooked to your liking (I like to keep this apple sauce pretty rustic. I like some chunks and I also like to keep the skins on the apples), whether you like the sauce a little more chunky or smooth, set aside until the pancake is baked
Once the pancake has puffed up and is golden brown around the edges, carefully remove the skillet from the oven and add the apple sauce, a sprinkle of cinnamon, a dusting of coconut sugar and a drizzle of maple syrup. Serve hot and enjoy!

    Can you use corn starch instead of tapioca starch? Can almond flour be made in a Ninja blender? Thanks, It looks delicious and not too sweet!
