Apple-Cinnamon Dutch Baby

Apples and fall go hand-in-hand.  When fall rolls around, I find myself enjoying all sorts of apple dishes.  Today's recipe is for a delicious Apple-Cinnamon Dutch Baby.  I found this recipe in the latest issue of Southern Living Magazine.

I have made puff pancakes before and the family has always enjoyed them.   I like them because they are so easy to prepare and are easy on the budget.   You just need some eggs, butter, milk, flour, and spices for the pancake.  For the fruit, I used one Gala apple.  This recipe has a delicious sauce made from sour cream, brown sugar, and apple cider.  MMM was it ever good.

After removing the pancake from the oven, I sprinkled it with lots of powdered sugar.  I then cut and served with the sauce drizzled over each serving.  Everyone loved this dish:)
