Do you like the smell of cinnamon and baked apples in your house around christmas? Then you could like this kind of pancake. It is called Dutch Baby or German Pancake – at least in the US…! The recipe is actually very, very sweet – I tried to make it a little bit less sweet and more organic than usual. I used Alsan margarine, which is a good alternative to butter, as well as organic spelt flour and less cane sugar, which I’ve stored in a glass with a vanilla bean for some weeks. The flavour is gorgeous then! If you want more sweetness anyway, you can use some maple sirup, homemade icecream, apple sauce or blueberry marmelade for the topping. Just try what is best for you and your loved ones!

Start with frying the cored and sliced apples in a very hot pan with the margarine. Flavour them with the cane sugar and the cinnamon. Wait until they’re soft enough, but don’t let them get too plashy.

In the meantime preheat the oven to 200 degree and prepare the batter: With a beater, mix spelt flour, sugar, cinnamon and salt. Step by step add eggs, melted margarine and milk until everything is combined well. Some people do this with a blender to make the batter really smooth and fluffy.

Then give the batter on the softened apples for a minute. Transfer it to the heated oven immediately and let it bake for around 15 minutes. Check it from time to time, your Dutch Baby shouldn’t get too dark in there.

Afterwards decorate it as you like: Icecream, blueberry marmlade or apple sauce are just ideas – it’s up to you to get creative and to choose what you like!

Enjoy and have a calm second advent weekend!
