Chai Spice Mix

  • 1 tsp. ground cardamom
  • ¼ tsp. ground clove
  • 1⁄8 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp. ground ginger
  • ½ tsp. ground fennel seeds

Honey Butter

  • ¼ cup salted butter, softened
  • ½ tsp. clover honey

Dutch Baby

  • 2 large gala apples, thinly sliced
  • 3 eggs
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup skim milk
  • ¼ tsp. coarse salt
  • 1½ tbsp. white sugar
  • ½ tsp. vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp. vanilla paste
  • 3 tbsp. salted butter
  • pomegranate seeds, walnuts, pecans, for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Combine all the chai spice mix ingredients in a small bowl and set aside. Whisk together the ingredients for the honey butter and chill until you are ready to use.
  2. Over medium heat, melt butter in an 8” cast iron skillet. Stir in apples and 2 tsp. of the spice mix. Cook until the apples have started to soften.
  3. While the apples cook, blend eggs, flour, milk, salt, sugar, vanilla paste, vanilla extract, and remaining chai spice mix. Blend until smooth.
  4. Turn off the stove and pour the batter into your cast iron skillet. Place the cast iron in the 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, and add pomegranate seeds, walnuts, pecans, and chilled honey butter. Serve immediately.
