In large bowl, whisk together eggs, flour, milk, butter, salt, pepper and mace until smooth and frothy. Mix in green onions and jalapeño pepper. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)

Whisk batter; spoon into greased mini-muffin cups to fill halfway. Add rounded 1 tsp (5 mL) crabmeat to each; spoon remaining batter over top.

Bake in 425°F (220°C) oven until golden and puffed, 16 to 18 minutes. Serve warm. (Make-ahead: Layer between waxed paper in airtight container and refrigerate for up to 2 days or freeze for up to 2 weeks. Reheat in 400°F/200°C oven for 5 to 10 minutes.)
