Ingredients List

This impressive Dutch baby puffs as it bakes, and then falls to a tender pancake. It’s a breakfast treat - the apple pie filling with bacon and maple syrup cheddar is heavenly.


  1. Place a 10-inch cast-iron skillet in the oven on the middle rack. Heat oven to 425˚F. 
  2. Beat eggs in a large bowl until blended. Beat in the milk, flour, sugar and maple syrup until frothy. Remove skillet from the oven. (Pan will be hot!) Add 1 tablespoon butter; tilt pan to coat bottom and sides with melted butter. Pour batter into the hot skillet; sprinkle with 1 cup cheddar and 1/2 cup bacon. Bake for 18-22 minutes or until puffed and edges are golden brown.
  3. Meanwhile, melt the remaining butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add the apple, brown sugar and cinnamon; cook and stir for 5-7 minutes or until apple is tender. Spoon apple mixture into pancake. Sprinkle with remaining cheddar and bacon. Serve warm.
