Toss flour, baking powder cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt in a mixing bowl. In another bowl, stir the half-and-half, milk, brown sugar, butter, egg, vanilla extract, and lemon zest until smooth. Stir the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients until almost smooth; there may be some lumps. Fold in fruit like blueberries or strawberries (optional).
Heat a griddle over medium-high heat, butter/oil lightly. Gently drop batter by heaping tablespoon and cook until bottoms are golden and bubbles are popping on the surface (about 1 minute). Turn and cook 1 minute on the other side. Repeat process, adding more butter/oil until all batter is used. Serve hot with butter, syrup, or sugar.
