From our friends at, whose weekly recipe contests we've been featuring on HuffPost Food, comes this great collection of indulgent and comforting breakfast recipes.

David Eyre's Pancake
1 of 19

This recipe comes from The Essential New York Times Cookbook, and appeared in the Times in 1966. Forty years later, readers are still making the pancake with no less bliss. What keeps cooks faithful to one recipe is often some confluence of ease and surprise. Eyre's pancake possesses both. A batter of flour, milk, eggs, and nutmeg is blended together, then poured into a hot skillet filled with butter and baked. Anyone confused? I didn't think so. The surprise comes at the end, when you open the oven door to find a poufy, toasted, utterly delectable-looking pancake. It soon collapses as you shower it with confectioners' sugar and lemon juice, slice it up and devour it. It's sweet and tart, not quite a pancake and not quite a crepe. But lovable all the same. Cooking Notes: Don't overmix the batter, or the pancake will be tough - a few lumps are fine. This is the moment to call your well-seasoned iron skillet into service.
