Preheat your oven to 425°F.
Stick a 9” oven-safe skillet in the oven as it warms up. (We’re going old-school with cast iron.)
While the oven does its thing, toss all your pancake ingredients (except the butter) into the blender. Blend until it’s as smooth as a jazz tune. Let it chill for 10-20 minutes while the oven finishes heating.
Mix up the strawberries, lemon zest, and sugar, then spread them on a baking sheet.
Once the oven is good to go, toss in the buttered pan and swirl until it’s all melty. Pour in the pancake batter pronto. Slide the pan and the strawberries into the oven. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until the edges are big and puffy, the color is golden brown, and the strawberries are all jammy.
Top it all off with strawberries, a drizzle of maple syrup, and maybe a sprinkle of powdered sugar. Dive in and enjoy your effortlessly cool breakfast!
