David Eyre's Pancake: 1966

David Eyre Pancake

This may be one of the most FUN recipes to make. The huge poof of a pancake that you're greeted with at the end, and a flavor that will remind you of the candy, Lemonheads, will put a smile on anyone's face.


1/2 Cup milk
2 eggs lightly beaten
1 pinch nutmeg


  1. Heat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Combine the flour, milk, eggs, and nutmeg in a bowl. Beat lightly. Leave the batter a little lumpy.
  3. Melt the butter in a 12-inch skillet with a heatproof handle. When it is very hot, pour in the batter.
  4. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until the pancake is golden brown.
  5. Sprinkle with the sugar and return briefly to the oven.
  6. Sprinkle with lemon juice, and serve with jelly, jam, or marmalade.
