As a mom of two little kids I am all about easy breakfasts. This dutch baby pancake is just that. You simply mix the ingredients in a blender and then pop it in the oven!

How to Make This Chocolate Dutch Baby

Preheat oven to 400F and place your cast iron skillet into the oven while it preheats. If you don’t have a cast iron skillet you can use a round 10 inch baking dish.

Dutch Baby Batter

In blender add eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla extract, cocoa powder, and flour. Blend until well combined. I find you have to scrape down the sides at least once and blend again. (You can also mix everything by hand as well).

When oven has preheated remove the pan from the oven and add butter. Place back into the oven until the butter fully melted. Then, pour blended batter into heated pan and bake for 22 minutes.

When you first remove it from the pan it will have raised dramatically but after a few minutes the pancake will sink down.

Toppings You Can Add

Just like a regular pancake the topping options for this chocolate dutch baby are limitless! I like mine with homemade whipped cream and sweetened cocoa powder. You can also add fruit, powdered sugar, or maple syrup. It’s up to you!

Homemade Whipped Cream

Using a stand mixer or hand held mixer to whip the cream, vanilla, and powered sugar. Whip on high speed until thick.

How to Make this Chocolate Danish

Thawing the Puff Pastry

I always buy my puff pastry from the grocery store. You’ll find puff pastry in the frozen section of the grocery store. I like to get the pre-rolled kind (it’s just easier). Before making this danish read the thawing instructions on the puff pastry. I like to let mine thaw in the fridge over night or you can usually thaw it on the counter for 2 hours. They usually come in a two sheet pack and you will only need one sheet for this recipe.

Assembling the Danish

Preheat your oven to 375 F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

Using a sharp knife coarsely chop the semi sweet bakers chocolate. Set aside.

In a large bowl mix cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla together until light and fluffy. Set aside.

Unfold the thawed puff pastry and lay it on the lined baking tray. Fold it in thirds so you have a clean indication of where the middle section is.

Add the cream cheese mixture into the centre section of the puff pastry. Using a spatula evenly spread the mixture to cover the entire centre area. Leave a small amount of space at the bottom and top edges so you have room to fold.

puff pastry base with cream cheese mixture

Sprinkle the chopped chocolate on top of the cream cheese. You can use a half cup of semi sweet chocolate chips but the bakers chocolate melts better (where chocolate chips keep their shape).

Cut 1/2 inch diagonal strips up each side of the dough. Fold the top and bottom edge of the dough in towards the pastry.

Fold slats of dough up over filling alternating sides to get a braided pattern.

Egg Wash

Make the egg wash by beating the egg and cold water together in a small bowl. Use a basting brush to apply the egg wash all over the folded danish.

Baking and Chocolate Drizzle

Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown. Remove from the oven and let sit on the pan until it cools slightly.

Add the 1/2 cup of semi sweet chocolate chips into a microwave safe bowl. Microwave in 20 second increments (stirring in between) until melted. Drizzle the melted chocolate over top of the pastry.

This danish is best enjoyed fresh from the oven and still warm. However, it will keep for a day at room temperature.

Apple Crisp Danishes

Apple Crisp Danishes

I love danishes and pastries (well pretty much anything sweet) for breakfast. This morning I decided to make Apple Crisp Danishes and I was not disappointed. They have all the flavour and components of an apple crisp baked on top of a puff pastry and drizzled with a little icing, creating a delicious Fall themed danish.

This is not the best recipe to bake with younger children. It requires chopping/peeling apples and using the stove. However, I’m sure older children would be able to assist. I usually let my toddlers make the crisp topping but because it was early in the morning they were to preoccupied eating their own breakfast to want to help. I always joke that my toddles are like hobbits when it comes to eating; breakfast, second breakfast, lunch, dinner, supper. Can anyone else relate?

How to Make the Apple Crisp Danishes

This recipe has a bunch of steps but I promise it is quite easy. First things first, you want to make sure you have the right apples. You want to use a baking apple. Some baking apple types are Granny Smith, Honeycrisp, Jonagold, and Cortland.

Thawing the Puff Pastry

I always buy my puff pastry from the grocery store. You’ll find puff pastry in the frozen section of the grocery store. I like to get the pre-rolled kind (it’s just easier). Before making this danish read the thawing instructions on the puff pastry. I like to let mine thaw in the fridge over night or you can usually thaw it on the counter for 2 hours. They usually come in a two sheet pack and you will only need one sheet for this recipe.

Apple Filling

When ready to bake preheat your oven. Peel and thinly slice your apples. In a medium sized saucepan melt butter and cook apples for about 5 minutes. I don’t know if you’ve ever cooked apples but the smell is lovely (like apple cider). While apples are cooking mix together the cornstarch, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Once apples have cooked for 5 minutes add in the sugar mixture and cook for another 3 minutes or until apples are soft. Remove from heat to cool to room temperature.

Assembling the Danishes

While apples are cooling you can prepare the pastry. Unfold your puff pastry and cut it into six rectangles. Place the rectangles on a parchment lined baking tray. Using a sharp knife lightly score (not pressing all the way through) a border about 3/4 inch from the edge. Then use a fork to poke some holes in the centre. This allows the edges to rise up more than the middle.

puff pastry

Evenly distribute the cooked apples onto the pastries. Try to keep them inside the scored border.

Then create the crisp topping by mixing the butter, sugar, flour, and rolled oats together to create a crumb texture. Sprinkle the mixture over top of the apples (again try and stay inside the border).

Create the egg wash and lightly coat the outer edges. Then bake until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack for about 10 minutes. While cooling mix up the icing and use a spoon to drizzle it on top of the danishes.
