Have you ever heard of a Dutch Baby? They are delicious and a wonderful treat to serve for brunch! A Dutch baby is essentially a sweet popover that is often served for breakfast or brunch. It is sometimes called a German pancake (its origins are from German American immigrants) and according to Sunset magazine, the first Dutch Baby originated early in the 20th century in Seattle Washington in a family run restaurant by the owner's daughter. My Mum has been making a baked apple pancake since I was little and my mouth waters thinking about it! This recipe is Wildtree's version of a Dutch Baby...maybe one day I'll share my Mum's recipe!
Skillet Apple Pancake
¾ cup milk
1 tablespoon Wildtree Natural Grapeseed Oil
1 cup Wildtree Buttermilk Pancake Mix
2 tablespoons butter
1 apple, sliced
Preheat oven to 450°F. In a large bowl whisk together the eggs and milk. Add the Pancake Mix and whisk to form a smooth batter. Whisk in the Grapeseed Oil. Set the batter aside. Heat a 12 inch nonstick, oven safe, skillet over medium heat. Melt 1 tablespoon of butter. Add the apples to the pan and cook for about 3 minutes on each side. Remove the apples from the skillet. Melt the second tablespoon of butter in the skillet. Add the Pancake batter. Cook on medium for about 2 minutes until the batter starts to set. Arrange the apples on top of the batter. Transfer pan to oven and bake for 15 minutes, or until the pancake is golden brown and cooked through. Transfer to a cutting board and slice into 6 equal portions.
