Maple Cheddar Dutch Baby

Recipe Description

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.


  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons butter, cubed and divided
  • 6 ounces Wood River Creamery Fenugreek Cheddar Gruyere, shredded and divided (1 1/2 cups)
  • 12 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled, divided
  • 1 apple, peeled, cored and sliced 1/4-inch thick
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon


Place a 10-inch ovenproof or cast-iron skillet in the oven on the middle rack. Heat oven to 425°F.

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 the bottom and sides. 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.

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.
