DIRECTIONS

  • Heat oven to 425 degrees. Combine the flour, milk, eggs, and nutmeg in a bowl. Beat lightly. Leave the batter a little lumpy as overbeating will make the pancake tough.
  • Melt the butter in a 12-inch cast iron or other ovenproof skillet with a heatproof handle. When it is very hot and slightly browned, pour in the batter. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until the pancake is golden brown.
  • 4. Sprinkle with the sugar and return briefly to the oven. Sprinkle with lemon juice, and serve. My kids like the sugar and lemon juice stirred together like a kind of glaze drizzled onto the pancake, which is how I remember having crepes from the crepe stands in Paris -- Additionally can be served with jelly, jam, or marmalade.
