Believe it or not, this Cinnamon Apple Dutch Baby recipe wasn’t inspired by the fact that I love the Dutch and that I want to live in Amsterdam when I grow up. Dutch Baby pancakes are simply a delicious breakfast popover, also known as German pancakes, Bismarks or even a Dutch Puff. It’s a sweet breakfast popover, plain and simple, it just happens to be most commonly be called a Dutch Baby.

But really, who doesn’t want to live here? Oh Amsterdam, I miss you every day. You stole my heart and I can’t wait to visit you again someday.

‘Tis the season for quick breakfasts in the morning before we ship the kids off to school and we head to work. A Cinnamon Apple Dutch Baby isn’t really that time-consuming, you whisk together the ingredients and then pour into a heated skillet, just like a Yorkshire Pudding, in essence. However once you get into the apples and sauce, it can take more time. A quick tip is to make the apples ahead of time and simply reheat.

Lord knows that it’s definitely apple season around here! I’m bucking the pumpkin trend now. Sometimes, it’s just too much darn pumpkin. Let me enjoy my first few Pumpkin Spice Latte’s until I’m tired of them and then let’s talk pumpkin recipes.

Am I right? Eesh. My Facebook feed is full of pumpkin, to the point where I’ve already had enough. That said, I certainly have a new recipe or two coming up that uses pumpkin, so I’ll have to join the fray. Maybe I should start doing everything backwards. Pumpkin in the spring. Lemon recipes in the fall. That way we all aren’t so darn tired of all these recipes and you will actually enjoy them instead of getting sick of them!

So has everyone made sure to check out my new YouTube channel? I am so very excited about this endeavour! Of course I started it when I’m the busiest lady possible, but that’s ok. I’m going to get my cookbook photos done for the middle of October and then you are all going to see massive amounts of new recipes and videos. I am so excited! For now though, make sure to head on over there and subscribe to my channel, you’ll get a notification whenever I post a new video!

The Pyrex Mail videos are so much fun to do, you HAVE to check them out!

Hope you are all having a fabulous week, love you more than chocolate!

    Recipe is one of the best. Tasty and smell, but combination apple with cinnamon is very good choice for health benefit. My mom use that recipe with cereals reducing blood sugar. But if you don’t have that problem you can make with sugar, is more sweet. Thank you for this recipe, Dutch baby.

  2. Maggie Berthelette says

    This was so easy to make and yummy. Served on retro plates with yes, whipped topping! Side benefit: my house smells amazing this morning.

  3. The Kitchen Magpie says

    Mine too! Or at least that’s what they told me when I bought it lol

  4. Lana Moffatt Wilmot says

    I think it’s a Goodland apple tree green washed with red ,good for eating , baking & storage . Makes great pies , juice & apple sauce & freezes well ,I put fruit fresh on after peeling ,coring & slicing then bag . Ready mid to late Sept. Got a lot of hail damage this year . Check out Lois Hole for info about apples for our area.

  5. The Kitchen Magpie says

    Lana Moffatt Wilmot what type of apples do you have?

  6. Lana Moffatt Wilmot says

    Looks good ! I still have apples on my tree to use .

  7. Jill Pals says

    I totally agree. Pumpkin has its time and place…after apple season is over!

  8. The Kitchen Magpie says

    Clean up on aisle, er, keyboard three…..

  9. The Kitchen Magpie says

    I’m Canadian and darn it, the beginning of September is NO time for all the pumpkin recipes that besiege us all. Thanksgiving isn’t even here and I’m tired of pumpkin!

  10. The Kitchen Magpie says

    Haha! I like pumpkin, but let’s give apples their time and then move on to pumpkins. Ugh. Every food blogger in the world is posting pumpkin recipes! NO! It’s apple time!

  11. Julia Johnson says

    I just drooled all over my keyboard. *sigh*

  12. Jill Pals says

    Yay finally someone else has the same feelings as me on the apple vs pumpkin debate! Can’t wait to try making this 🙂

  13. Teresa Pearson says
