A weird oven pancake

Ingredients

1cflour
1⁄4tsalt
1⁄4torange zest
6 eggs
1cmilk
1⁄4tvanilla extract
3Tbutter

Instructions

1. Heat the oven to 425F and arrange a rack in the middle. Place a large, seasoned cast iron skillet in the oven as it preheats, at least 5 minutes.

2. Combine flour, salt, and orange zest in a large bowl and whisk to break up any lumps and incorporate; set aside. Combine eggs, milk, and vanilla in a separate bowl and whisk until the eggs are broken up. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture, dump in the egg mixture, and mix until the batter is thoroughly moistened and slightly lumpy, about 1 minute.

3. Using a dry kitchen towel or an oven mitt, remove the skillet from the oven and add the butter. Once the butter melts, tilt the skillet to coat the bottom and sides.

4. Pour the batter into the skillet and bake in the oven until puffed and golden brown on the sides, about 20 minutes. Remove the pancake from the oven and serve immediately with pears or honey and a sprinkling of powdered sugar.
