Easy oven baked puffy pancake....one of our favorites!
Ingredients
  • 5 Tbsp butter
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup unbleached all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup milk
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • pinch of salt, optional
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425.
  2. In a large skillet, add 5 Tablespoons of butter and place into oven to melt butter.
  3. In a blender add 2 eggs and blend till foamy.
  4. Then add flour, milk, nutmeg and salt to blender and blend well.
  5. Remove skillet from oven once butter has melted. Swirl skillet to spread the butter to coat the bottom of the pan. Add batter and make sure it's evenly distributed.
  6. Bake 15 to 20 minutes till golden and puffy.
  7. Sprinkle with fresh squeezed lemon juice and powdered sugar.
  8. *Optional - to make it an apple pancake, place thinly sliced apples at the bottom of the skillet before pouring in the batter. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar mixture.
  9. **I've also made this with freshly ground flour, and it just doesn't puff up as much. Maybe a little bit of baking powder would then be needed.
