How to Prepare Apple Dutch Baby [Vegan, Gluten-Free]

  1. Toss apples with citrus juice (lemon or orange) and 1 teaspoon cinnamon.
  2. Add apples to pan and add 1 1/2 tablespoon maple syrup. Sauté until softened, but not mushy, about 5-7 minutes.
  3. Mix dry ingredients together and blend along with remaining ingredients in a blender.
  4. Taste the batter and see if it has enough sweetness for you. If it doesn't, add a little more maple syrup or date paste (don't go crazy, as the apples will add sweetness too).
  5. Spray a pie pan with cooking spray, and place cooked apples onto the bottom. Pour batter onto apples
  6. Bake at 425°F for 30 minutes, or until knife inserted comes out clean.
  7. Sprinkle with additional cinnamon, and serve with maple syrup, additional cinnamon, apple sauce, or extra sautéed apples.
