Eat In. Happy Pancake Day!

This is a recipe from my boyfriend's (Hank, of apple martini fame) sister, Khaki, who lives in New York. She got it from her good friend Chef Brendan McDermott (of the Brooklyn Kitchen).

Puffy Pancakes:

2 eggs lightly beaten
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup milk
tsp. nutmeg

Heat oven to 425 degrees. Mix all the above ingredients together. Heat up a cast iron skillet or pot on stovetop. Melt 3 tablespoons butter in the pan on medium heat. Once melted, pour in batter and leave there until it starts to bubble on the edges. Remove from stovetop and put in oven for 15-20 mins. Remove from pan and sprinkle with powdered sugar, fresh fruit (or shaved chocolate, almonds, anything you like!).

Khaki tried a savory version as well, "and it came out like fresh hot pita bread. I just subbed the butter with olive oil, put in rock salt instead of nutmeg, and after it was halfway cooked I topped with feta. Then we used it to dip in hummus!"

Have breakfast for dinner tonight to celebrate Pancake Tuesday (if you didn't already have some this morning), or save this link for Sunday morning!
