Packed with Granny Smith apples, this Dutch baby pancake is a perfect dish for a fall brunch when everyone craves cozy baked apples. It would make a fitting centerpiece at a special Rosh Hashanah brunch as it nods to the traditional dish of sliced apples dipped in honey, a ritual performed to represent the hope for a sweet new year.

Instructions Checklist
  • Over medium heat, melt 1 tablespoon butter in a medium cast-iron skillet (10 inches, measured across top). Stir in apple, 1 tablespoon sugar, and cinnamon, and cook until crisp-tender, about 2 minutes; transfer to a plate and wipe skillet clean.

  • Preheat oven to 425°F and place now-clean skillet on center rack. In a bowl, whisk together flour, remaining 2 tablespoons sugar, and salt.

  • Purée eggs in a blender until pale and frothy, about 1 minute. Add flour mixture, milk, and vanilla. Purée until smooth, about 30 seconds (the batter will be thin).

  • Add remaining 3 tablespoons butter to skillet in oven. When it melts and sizzles, pull out the rack and quickly pour batter into center of skillet. Sprinkle apple mixture evenly over batter.

  • Bake until pancake is puffed, golden brown in places, and crisp along the edges, 18 to 22 minutes. Slice into wedges and serve immediately with yogurt, fruit, and syrup.
