Total time: 30 minutes | Serves 2 to 4
  • 1 cup (4.25 ounces) flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 4 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter

Step 1Heat oven to 425 degrees. In a bowl, whisk together the flour and salt. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs with the milk, then beat the egg mixture into the flour. Melt the butter in a 9- to 10-inch cast-iron skillet and pour the batter into the hot pan. Bake until the pancake is puffed and golden brown, 20 to 24 minutes. Serve immediately.

Note: Dress up the pancake as you like, perhaps with a pinch of spice or lemon zest. Serve plain or dusted with powdered sugar.
