Cardamom Apple Dutch Baby (gluten free)

  • Author: Katja from Savory Lotus
  • Prep Time: 12 mins
  • Cook Time: 16 mins
  • Total Time: 28 minutes
  • Yield: 4-6 servings 1x


  • 1 large apple, peeled, cored, and sliced into thin slices
  • 1 tsp cardamom powder (like this)
  • 1 tbsp coconut sugar (like this)
  • 3 eggs
  • ¾ cup full fat coconut milk (where to buy BPA free coconut milk)
  • ¾ cup almond flour (I use THIS brand)
  • 2 tbsp tapioca flour (like this)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp unrefined salt
  • 3 tbsp butter, coconut oil, or ghee for greasing pan


  • real maple syrup (like this)
  • extra cardamon powder
  • whipped cream (or coconut whipped cream)


  1. Preheat oven to 450’F. Place medium-sized cast iron skillet to heat up for 10 minutes. (The secret to a good dutch baby is a hot pan.)
  2. Combine apple slices, cardamom, and coconut sugar in a small bowl, mixing until evenly coated. Set aside.
  3. Place eggs, coconut milk, almond flour, tapioca flour, vanilla extract, and salt into blender container. Do not blend YET. Set aside.
  4. Very carefully remove HOT skillet from oven. Drop in 3 tablespoons of butter (or ghee or coconut oil) and allow to melt, swirling to evenly coat pan. Add apples and stir. Place back into oven for 2 minutes to allow apples to soften.
  5. Meanwhile, process batter in blender until smooth.
  6. Once again, very carefully remove HOT skillet from oven. Pour batter over apples and carefully place pan into oven. Bake for 15-17, until puffy, golden, and set in center.
