  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon sugar

  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • Pinch of salt

Recipe Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 425 F.
  2. Place eggs, flour, milk, sugar, lemon zest, nutmeg and salt in a blender jar, and blend until smooth.
  3. Add butter to braiser and place in preheated oven. Allow butter to melt in the pan, watching carefully so that it does not burn. As soon as the butter has melted, carefully pour the batter into the pan and return to the oven. Bake until the pancake is puffed and golden, about 18-20 minutes. Lower oven temperature to 300 F and bake 5 minutes longer.
