Ready! Steady! Go!

My working day begins at 2pm. While most of Los Angeles is whiling away the morning on the 405, I am firmly encased in layers of sleep, bed sheets, and cats. While I am endlessly pleased that the only reason I need touch my alarm clock each week is to dust it, this arrangement does pose one problem. How do I avoid sleeping my life away? What could possibly motivate me to heave my body out of bed each morning? A steaming cup of coffee, a glass of juice, and The Seattle Pancake. It's cheerful lemony goodness will make you smile. (Or at least get out of bed!)

The Seattle Pancake

4Tblsp. butter
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup milk
2 pinches of nutmeg
1/3 cup confectioners sugar
1 Lemon

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Melt the butter in a 12 inch oven proof skillet. Meanwhile, in a mixing bowl, combine the flour, milk eggs and nutmeg. Beat lightly, leaving the batter a little lumpy. When the butter is very hot pour in the batter. Bake in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the pancake is a lovely golden brown. Sprinkle on the sugar and return the pancake briefly to the oven. Serve hot with lemon wedges for a super morning!

dear evie - i love this site. before i was depressed and had no reason to live. i drank too much and smoked too many cigarettes. i pined for a man who did not love me. i dreamed of being madonna. but that dreary past is all behind me now, for each day i wake up the sun shines for the thought of what heart warming and life inspiring receipe will appear on hot-dish. with all this new life now pulsating through my very soul there is actual hope now that one day i will in fact be madonna. until then i can cook and bake and attract the right type of man for everyone knows that way to a man's heart is through is stomach. unfortunately for me i was going through the wrong way and attracting the wrong kind. but now as i said there is hope for new life and one day i feel for certain will even have a one bedroom apartment with a full kitchen and room for a hutch to hold all my beautiful kitchen implements and appliances i intend to purchase to try all your receipes. thank you ms. evie for resurrecting my life.
with heartfelt thanks,
ms. sunshine.

melt butter in heavy cream.
add cheese and melt, adding more butter if necessary.

Dear Evie,
I made your Seattle Pancake recipe again, by popular demand! Thankfully, happily, Donovan ate it up and LOVED it. The Wilkinson girla are equally pleased :) It did take me a good chunk of time to unearth the recipe because I could not find it in your recipe list. It's me, not you. I'm glad I perused though... so many darling DARLING photos of you. I think you should consider growing your hair the way you wore it in the Christmas tree (or was it made for you to wear??)skirt post! You are GORGEOUS! Thanks again for a yummy breakfast :) so nice to please the masses
