Preheat oven and skillet for 15 minutes at 450°F.
Add 3 eggs, 1 Tbsp sugar, 1 tsp vanilla extract and a pinch of salt to a jar, close with a lid and shake for about 30 seconds. Now add 1/2 cup milk and 2/3 cup flour and shake for about 1 minute until all ingredients are well mixed together. Let rest for about 10 minutes.
Remove the hot skillet from the oven and spray with a nonstick spray, or put 1 tbsp of butter and melt it, then swirl the pan around to coat evenly with butter. Shake the batter one more time and pour the batter in.
Pour maple syrup, lemon juice and some melted butter all over the pancake. Cut into wedges and serve.
Cut into thinner wedges, roll with a fork, then dunk the roll into the syrup and eat.
!To make in a bowl:

NOTE: the batter can be used to make 2 thinner pancakes or one thick one. Make sure to add more butter to the skillet the second time as well, if you choose to make 2.
