  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup a.p. flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 tbs butter
  • 2 tbs fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tbs confectioners' sugar for dusting


  • Preheat the oven to 400F.
  • In a blender, combine the eggs, milk, flour, vanilla and salt; cover and process until smooth.
  • Place cast-iron skillet over medium heat and stir butter until melted. Continue to cook, slightly simmering, until butter foams, stirring often. Once butter forms toasty brown bits, becomes a golden caramel color, and has a warm nutty aroma, pour in the batter.
  • Cook for 3-5 minutes and bake in the oven until puffed and golden brown, about 25-30 minutes more.
  • Add lemon juice to pancakes and sift the confectioners' sugar over the pancake.
  • Serve immediately in the skillet with maple syrup or your favorite fruits or jams.
