“These can easily be dessert for your next brunch. You may make more or fewer pancakes than indicated depending on thickness of batter.”
16 pancakes

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large mixing bowl, blend together egg yolks and 1 cup buttermilk.
  2. In another bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and baking soda and add to egg mixture.
  3. Mix to combine. Stir in the 1/2 cup buttermilk and the melted butter.
  4. In a mixer bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form.
  5. Gently fold beaten egg whites into flour mixture, leaving a few fluffs of egg whites ~ DO NOT OVERMIX.
  6. For each pancake, spoon 1 tablespoon of the batter onto a hot, lightly greased griddle or heavy skillet (I use my electric fry pan).
  7. If batter is too thick to spread slightly when poured on griddle, add 2 to 4 tablespoons additional milk (1 tablespon at a time).
  8. Cook until golden brown, turn and cook other side when pancakes are bubbly and dry around the edges.
  9. Before serving, warm syrup in a pan or in the microwave and serve with syrup, butter, and fresh berries over the top of the pancakes.
