As I scroll through the recipes, I wish that I was pregnant, but seriously, I love this cookbook and I wish I had it when I was pregnant, there is a plethora of information and great tips about taking care of yourself while you are pregnant. Such as, what your BMI should be while pregnant, how to stock your kitchen the correct way, how to plan your meals, and over 125 delicious recipes such as Berry and Ricotta Stuffed French Toast, Grilled Skirt Steak and Chimichurri Sauce, Chocolate Ganache Cupcakes and this wonderful recipe for Apple Cinnamon Dutch Baby that I will share with you.
I chose this recipe because of the delicious fall flavors that I am craving. Plus, I love Dutch baby’s and this recipe has the word BABY in it! Women crave certain foods when they are pregnant ( I craved apples, strawberries and watermelon) and these are my daughters favorites too!
Let’s get started and make this delicious Dutch Baby!
You will need a blender, or a whisk if you don’t have a blender. It’s so easy, just add all of the ingredients and blend. You will also need a cast iron skillet, or something that you can place in the oven that is oven proof.
A dutch baby is like a Crepe and a Popover got married and had a baby! A Dutch Baby!
The Dutch baby really puffs up in the oven! Beautiful!
Serve with a sprinkling of powdered sugar and or Maple Syrup! Serve immediately!
A delicious Dutch baby is very similar to a German Pancake. It's like a popover and crepe combined. With the delicious fall flavors of apple and cinnamon, makes this a perfect breakfast or brunch treat.
