Dutch Apple, Baby!

March 17, 2012

Spring has sprung, or at least the sun is shining (as it does a lovely 300 days a year here in Denver), so we’ve been busy with a buch of non-indoors, non-projecty things. We also have a number of projects in progress, but apparently spring has given us a lack of follow through. We’ve still been cooking a new recipe a week, so watch for more fun food posts coming up, but here to tide you over is some pictures of our very first Dutch Apple Baby. For those of you who have never had one, a Dutch Apple Baby is basically a baked apple pancake. We thinly sliced some apples, and briefly sauteed them in a little butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon/nutmeg, until they were slightly soft. While that was going on, you make an egg-based pancake batter (very similar  to popovers). You pour the batter over the apples, and stick the whole thing in the oven to bake. It’s not necessarily a super elegant looking breakfast, but it tastes amazing. It’s like apple pie, without Rachel’s least favorite part-the crust!

The is a picture of our finished product, dusted with powdered sugar (everything looks fancier with powdered sugar!) It’s hard to see against the top of our range, but we cooked ours in cast iron. You can cook it in any pan you can also put in the oven.

As you can see, not particularly elegant on the plate, but more powdered sugar hides a multitude of sins! We’ll be back soon with more of our adventures, but hopefully this will tide everyone over until then!
