Dutch Baby (Puffed Apple Pancake)

If you haven’t had a dutch baby, you’re in for a real treat! It is simply the best pancake you’ll ever eat! I hesitate to call it a pancake, it’s puffy and custardy in the middle and baked with apples and cinnamon! Commonly baked in a cast iron skillet, but you can also use a baking dish, however you bake it, it’s outstanding!
