This apple puffed oven pancake recipe (also called dutch baby) is a cross between a crepe and a popover. They are blended up in seconds then popped into the oven to cook (and puff) into the perfect breakfast. Try making this delicious apple cinnamon dutch baby for your family, it tastes like apple pie!
Easy Breakfast Recipe: Apple Puffed Oven Pancake
I’m always on the lookout for quick recipes that are versatile enough for any meal. A favorite at the BrenDid homestead is Puffed Oven Pancakes (sometimes called Dutch Baby). My mother-in-law taught me this delicious recipe that she serves with strawberries in the spring.
We love the recipe so much that I created an apple puffed oven pancake recipe for seasons when fresh strawberries aren’t available.
