Preheat oven to 350 F.  Melt the 2 tablespoons butter in a 9” – 10” ovenproof skillet or round baking dish.

In a blender, mix all ingredients until well blended.  Make sure there are no lumps of flour.  You may need to scrape down sides of blender.  Pour batter into prepared skillet or baking dish.
