Why are these so light and fluffy? It’s the whipped egg whites. Beat the egg whites as you would for meringues and fold them into the batter.
What you need:
What to do:
1. Sift the dry ingredients together.
2. In another bowl, mix the yolks, most of the milk, and the melted butter together until smooth.
3. Make a well in the middle of the dry ingredients and add the mixed wet ingredients all at once. Stir until just combined. (Over-mixing will make for a tough pancake.)
4. Beat the egg whites until light and fluffy and soft peaks appear as for meringue. Add the sugar toward the end of the beating. Fold the egg whites gently into the batter with a spatula. Add milk to get the right consistency.
5.Cook as you would other pancakes.
