So far this year I’ve made multiple berry variations including THIS Blueberry and Strawberry Dutch Baby as well as a variation of THIS savory dutch baby that was SO good!

TODAY we’re making an Apple Dutch Baby because apples are EVERYWHERE here in Oregon and I picked 30 pounds of them over the weekend. Everything is going to be apple flavored in my house for the next few weeks.

I’ve seen a few different wants to make apple dutch babys but here’s how I like to do it.

How to make an Apple Dutch Baby:

First, gather your ingredients. Here’s what we are working with-

  • Apples- Any kind you’f like. I used a green and a red apple.
  • Flour- I used all purpose but a gluten free blend would also work well.
  • Eggs- these are key to getting the classic Dutch Baby texture.
  • Milk- any kind will work so use dairy free as desired
  • Flavoring- the main stars in this dish are cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, and brown sugar

Some recipes call for you to put the apples in the skillet completely raw. However, I’ve found that sautéing them for a few minutes before pouring on the batter makes a huge difference, doesn’t take much time, and results in a much deeper flavor profile.

To make the batter, you simply blend all of the ingredients in a blender and then pour them over top of the sautéed apples. Super simple but so so delicious!

ALRIGHT that’s it for today!  As always, if you end up making this apple butter, please snap a quick photo and tag me on Instagram @foodwithfeeling! I always LOVE to see what you’re making from the blog.

This Apple Dutch Baby is so easy to make and the perfect fall breakfast that everyone will love! Just a handful of simple ingredients!


Units Scale
  • 3 tablespoons of butter, divided
  • 23 apples sliced thinly (I used gala apples)
  • 1/4 cup of brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of cinnamon
  • Optional: 1/4 tsp of nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup of sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup milk (dairy free as desired)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • powdered sugar for dusting


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a blender, combine the sugar, vanilla, eggs, flour, milk, and salt and blend until smooth.
  3. In a large, oven safe skillet, melt 1 tablespoon of the butter. Once melted, add in the apple slices, BROWN sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Stir to combine. Saute the apples for 5 minutes, stirring often, until they just begin to soften. Remove to a bowl and don’t bother to wipe clean the skillet (we want the apples and sugar mixture to still be in there!).
  4. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter to the skillet and place the skillet in the pre-heated oven until the butter is melted; about 2-4 minutes.
  5. Remove from the oven and quickly arrange the apples. You can simply dump the apples in and distribute them evenly around the skillet OR you can arrange them in a circle like I did. Drizzle on any of the liquid that remains (see video for reference).
  6. Gently pour the batter over top of the apples and put directly into the oven. Bake for 20-25 minutes until it’s puffed up around the edges and browned all over.
  7. Dust lightly with powdered sugar and ENJOY!
