  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons Kerrygold unsalted butter

  2. Meanwhile, combine flour, salt, smoked paprika, cumin and pepper in a medium bowl
  3. In a smaller bowl, beat the eggs and milk with a whisk until well blended.
  4. Remove the pan from the oven and add the butter; swirl to coat the bottom and sides completely.
