Cousin Selma's Pancake

(4 servings)

  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 eggs - lightly beaten
  • 1 pinch of nutmeg
  • 8 Tablespoons butter
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • juice of half a lemon
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, milk, eggs and nutmeg. Beat lightly, leaving batter a little lumpy. Melt butter in a 12-inch skillet with ovenproof handle. When very hot, pour in batter.

Bake in oven 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.

Sprinkle with sugar and return briefly to oven. Sprinkle with lemon juice, then serve with jelly, jam or marmalade.

Dinah Shore introduced this recipe like this in her cookbook, "My cousin, Selma Lewis, was one of the most popular girls at Vanderbilt University when she was a student there. She's bright, pretty, laughs a lot and gloriously, and - something I didn't know until I visited her and her husband recently in Memphis - is also a great cook. Here's a sample."

Mr Breakfast would like to thank Mr Breakfast for this recipe.
