1 cup sugar + 1 tablespoon to sprinkle on top
1 cup milk
zest of one lemon (optional)
Preheat 350 degrees. Slice butter into pats and place in an 8×8 baking dish, then place in the oven for about 4 minutes, or until butter is completely melted. While butter is melting, whisk flour baking powder, sugar and milk together until batter is smooth with no lumps. Pour the batter into the warm pan with melted butter.
