⅔ cup (160ml) milk

3 eggs

30g butter, diced

 

Caramelised cinnamon apple

50g butter, diced

⅓ cup caster sugar

1 cinnamon quill, halved

Method

Dutch baby pancake

  1. Arrange one oven rack in the middle position and remove all other racks above or below. Set oven to 240°C/220°C (fan-forced) and place a 25 cm (top measurement) ovenproof frying pan into oven to heat up.
  2. Combine flour and salt in a large mixing bowl and make a well in the centre. Pour in milk and add eggs. Whisk to a smooth batter.
  3. Once oven has reached temperature, quickly remove hot frying pan from oven. Add butter and swirl pan to coat the base and sides. Pour in batter and return to oven. Cook 15-18 minutes or until pancake has puffed up and sides are golden.

Caramelised cinnamon apple

  1. While the Dutch baby is cooking, melt butter in a deep pan over medium heat. Add sugar and cook, stirring for 1-2 minutes or until sugar starts to caramelise. Add apple wedges, cinnamon quill and water and cook for a further 3-5 minutes. Add apple slices and cook until soft and caramelised. Stir in ground cinnamon and mix well. Set aside.

Assembly

  1. Remove Dutch baby from oven and top with caramelised apples, scoops of vanilla ice cream and maple syrup. Sprinkle with more ground cinnamon if desired.
