A delicious, quick and easy autumn breakfast whipped up in a blender and cooked in one pot! Done in just 30 minutes. Top with regular or candied walnuts, pecans, some fresh pomegranate seeds, and of course a dusting of powdered sugar!



For the Chai Spice Mix

  • 1 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground clove
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground fennel seeds

For the Honey Butter

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 12 teaspoons clover honey

For the Dutch Baby

  • 23 large apples, thinly sliced (I used Gala apples)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup AP flour
  • 1/2 cup skim milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla paste (optional – can easily substitute with vanilla extract)
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • Pomegranate seeds, walnuts, pecans, powdered sugar for garnish


  1. Preheat to 425˚F. Combine all ingredients for the chai spice mix in a small bowl and set aside. Whisk together all ingredients for honey butter and chill until ready to use.
  2. Melt butter in a large, oven safe skillet over medium high heat. Stir in apples and 2 teaspoons of the spice mix. Cook until apples have started to soften, about 4-5 minutes.
  3. While the apples are cooking, blend eggs, flour, milk, salt, sugar, vanilla paste, vanilla extract and remaining chai spice mix in a blender until smooth.
  4. Turn off the stove heat and pour the batter into the pan. Place the pan in the preheated oven and cook for 20-25 minutes, until puffed and golden brown.
  5. Remove from the oven. Sift some powdered sugar over the puffed pancake, add pomegranate seeds, walnuts, pecans, and chilled honey butter as desired. Serve immediately.
