I just got the latest issue of Family Fun Magazine (<— you can grab a FREE 20 issue subscription) which had 14 manufacture coupons from SC Johnson and Rinaldi, valued at $21.
There was also a kid friendly recipe for a dessert called Sweet Dutch Baby. I’d never heard of it but as I read over the recipe I realized we had all of the ingredients and the recipe looked simple enough for the kids to make pretty much on their own.
It’s important for me as a mom to plan time kitchen time for the kids. It’s important to me that they learn how to cook and also have time to work on improving their cooking skills.
I had no plans of making today a kitchen day but once I saw this recipe in this months issue while on the way to pick the kids up from school, I just went with the flow.
Making Sweet Dutch Baby with the kids was even easier than I anticipated. While I got dinner ready, my son made smoothies for afterschool snack and my daughter began working on dessert. The only thing I had to do for the kids was cut up the apple in thin slices. This recipe seems like a 30 minute version of an apple pie or tart.
The recipe required homemade pancake batter which is so easy to make. Just use 3 eggs, 1/2 cup of milk and 1 cup of flour. You should also add sugar, salt and cinnamon for flavor. We blended the pancake ingredients in the blender, which I’ve never done before. I always hand mix, but it was a lot simpler using the blender. Everything was mixed in 60 seconds.
The batter was poured over the apples…
…and into the oven it went for 25 minutes.

We sprinkled powdered sugar over the top before eating.
Sweet Dutch Baby Recipe
1 Medium Apple
3 tablespoons sugar
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons butter
3 large eggs (room temperature)
1/2 cup of milk (room temperature)
1/2 cup flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
confectioner’s sugar for dusting (optional)
Heat oven to 425 degrees. Peel and quarter the apple, then trim away the core. Thinly slice the quarters
In a small bowl, mix 2 tablespoons of the sugar and 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon with a fork. Add the apple slices and toss until they’re well coated.
Slice the butter into two equal pieces and place them in a 9 or 10 inch glass pie pan in the oven until the butter melts, aprox. 2 minutes. Use an oven mitt or hot handle holder to remove it from the oven and swril the pan to coat it surface.
Spread the apples over the bottom of the pan equally. Bake until the apples have softened slightly and the butter is bubbling and beginning to brown around the edges, approximately 10 minutes.
Make the pancake batter in a blender. Combine the eggs, milk, flour, vanilla, salt, remaining sugar and cinnamon. Blend on medium speed until well mixed and frothy about 1 minute
Use and oven mitt to carefully remove the dish from the oven. Pour the batter over the apples, then bake the pancake untill it’s puffy and golden brown, approximately 25 -30 minutes. Let it cool slightly on a wire rack. Dust the pancake with confectioner’ sugar and cut into wedges before serving.
